Work with us






If you are looking for a summer job that will change your life and the lives of others, we have an incredible opportunity for you.

We are looking for young, influential men and women who want to use their summer to show others the love of Christ and to give campers the best two weeks of their lives. We work hard to create a unique environment where relationships grow deep, where campers feel safe, where we laugh a lot, and where the truth of the gospel rings loud. You will build lifelong friendships, make sweet memories, watch lives be changed, be stretched in new ways, and be part of something so much bigger than yourself.

The atmosphere of LLYC is like no other. We are located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, in the gorgeous Frio River Canyon, where our 1,900-acre playground clearly displays God’s handiwork. From our spontaneous program to intentional discipleship, we create an environment where God’s love is on full display in the context of relational ministry.

From a late-night Rodeo Dance to a late-night deep conversation. From jumping off a cliff into the Frio River to jumping up on stage and acting ridiculous at Roundup. From sitting and taking in stunning views of the canyon walls to sitting with a camper and telling them how much Jesus loves them. LLYC is an incredible, life-changing way to spend your summer.
