About the Seasoned S.A.L.T. program

Spend time at Camp Timber Rock or Sunrise Ranch as a part of the S.A.L.T. program  and experience an amazing four and a half weeks serving and growing closer to God!  Seasoned S.A.L.T.s have plenty of opportunities to use their developing service and leadership skills as they help to support some of the following programs:  Family Camps, Rainier Kids Day Camp, Camp Timber Rock, Sunrise Ranch, Primary Camp and more!  Throughout their time here Seasoned S.A.L.T.s  will be intentionally discipled and challenged to grow in their walk with Christ as they seek to work towards a deeper relationship with the Lord.  This program is a great introduction to what it looks like to work at Cascades as it provides a small glimpse into the life of a summer staffer.
