Program tuition for 2023 is $850 (+ $50 in Pigeon Forge for prepaid laundry). This amount will cover housing, cleaning supplies, study materials, t-shirt, group meals, and some group activities. The tuition may be paid in three payments conveniently scheduled to correspond with your work pay periods. Most participants spend an average of $55 a week on food.
Hourly pay for beginning employees is competitive and dependent on the position. Most participants receive 40 hours of work per week. However, this can fluctuate to be anywhere from 30 to 50 hours per week. You should prepare accordingly. Lots of free entertainment in each area is available to employees of the parks. Although you can earn and save money during the summer, your personal Christian growth should be your primary goal. Since positions and pay may not equal your capabilities or experience, you should view your job, salary, and total work experience, as part of what God wants you to experience during the summer.
No, you do not need health insurance to participate in the summer program. We do however strongly encourage having it to cover unforeseen emergencies. If you are not already covered under your own or your parents’ plan, short term insurance can be obtained through Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Comfortable attire is most appropriate: shorts, T-shirts, jeans, swimsuit, sandals, and tennis shoes. Women may want to bring a couple of casual summer dresses or skirts. Men may want to bring a sport shirt and a pair of casual slacks. The weather is usually warm and humid, so you will not need warm clothes other than a light sweater, jacket, or sweatshirt. Some jobs may require black or brown closed-toe shoes and others may require water shoes/sandals with a heal strap. You will be contacted in advance about your job placement in order to know which shoes you will need.
TV, DVD player, computers of any kind (including laptops and IPads), video game systems, pets, fire-arms, or weapons of any kind.
Yes, but only if you are willing to let others use them.
No way! This includes vapes, cigars and pipes.
The parks have agreed to hold your job open for you while you take kids to Young Life camp.
If the Lord should lead you to join us in furthering this ministry, we will greatly appreciate it.
