Rowing Club is our summer volunteer program for high school students aged fourteen or older.  It’s a chance to “pull together” in ministry and serve others. It’s non-paid and short-term . . . but it’s more fun than you can shake an oar at!

We Are Looking For…

We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic youth who love Christ and want to serve others.  Leadership and personal development is an integral part of the program.  We interview carefully, so please fill out your application form prayerfully.   Seven members are selected for each Rowing Club and all members report to the Rowing Club Captain and Coxswains.



Rowing Club ministry includes:

  • Kitchen:  washing dishes, food preparation, setting and clearing tables
  • Childcare:  caring for young children (aged 0-2 years)
  • Cleaning:  keeping the public bathrooms clean and stocked with paper products
  • Assisting summer staff:  helping in areas such as the General Store, waterfront and maintenance
  • Community life:  contributing to the summer staff community life

Important Note to Parents

All Rowing Club members are selected by a screening process.  It is important that your child’s application is filled in carefully and prayerfully. Please ensure the Rowing Club dates your son or daughter selects works within your family’s schedule. If your son or daughter is attending a Family Retreat before or after their Rowing Club session, we cannot accommodate them at Barnabas for the day in between.  We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Remember to sign your child’s application.  Your signature is required.  Thank you!
