What am I going to be responsible for?

You will be responsible for a cabin of around 12 campers. You are responsible for first and foremost their safety (physical and spiritual) and their happiness. You will be expected to take them through activities at camp, interact with them at meals and throughout the day, help them make friends and anything else that comes up. You will be teaching activities to mixed ages and gender groups. You will also be participating in all camp activities, counselor skits, leading songs and nightly devotions.


What skills do I need for this job?

More than anything else, you need to have a STRONG DESIRE to care for children. Your priority at all times will be to tend to the needs of children. You will need to be patient, understanding, have a sense of humor and a desire to see them enjoy their time at camp. If possible attend training on First Aid and CPR.


What are the hours I will be working?

Plan on long nights and short sleep times. During the week, you will probably not have more than a few hours off the whole week, so train hard before coming to camp. Oh and you will have to walk everywhere at camp just like the campers.


How much do I get paid?

You name the amount since we don't issue cash for the work. All staff are volunteers who want to enrich campers lives with the spirit of love, faith, and peace.


Is there a computer avaliable to use at camp?

Yes, there is a staff computer with internet access available at camp. We also have wireless internet, so feel free to bring your laptop for free time.
