Tall Turf Ministries is a non-profit organization that seeks to equip youth for lives of reconciliation in God's world. We serve youth from diverse backgrounds ages 8-18. Tall Turf's mission is equipping youth for lives of reconciliation in God's world. What began in 1968 as a simple summer camp has become a year-round ministry that has served well over 30,000 youth from 8 to 18 years old, helping them become servant leaders equipped to meet one of the most important challenge of today's world: helping people find common ground, connect to one another and to God, as well as building a hopeful future. We are raising leaders and building a culture of understanding and respect. Our purpose as an organization is to develop and nurture leadership in the youth of our community, provide training and opportunities for youth to experience the benefits of racial and cultural diversity, implement a framework for learning and practicing servant leadership in their communities, and engaging youth in ways that teach them to appreciate and care for our environment.

“I loved the working environment as well as the ability to empower young adult and children. The campsite is the most beautiful place in the word with the lake. The staff is VERY fun; we take our jobs seriously, but we paly around a lot. This job is for someone who loves empowering kids and takes it seriously, but is goofy. ”
