Use What You Learn and Get Hands-On Ministry Training in One of These Many Ministry Opportunities


Camping Ministries

Summer Camp

The Summer Institute of Camping (SIC) is one of the unique aspects of the Bible Institute training. Supervised counseling and on-the-job training happen through opportunities to work with every age group. This summer program is a perfect end to a year of Bible training. It’s a hands-on class that utilizes the classroom learning to make an impact for Jesus.


Each weekend during the winter, Word of Life Bible Institute hosts more than 500 teens at our New York campus. You’ll have the opportunity to apply your classroom knowledge as Snowcamp counselors and support staff. Snowcamp counselors are involved in every aspect of the camp, including counseling, programming, and operations.
