Camp Dickenson Staff Application
Description
Positions Offered:

Counselor
Counselors are the heart of camping ministry, providing campers with structure, a safe environment, and strong role models. They must be at least 18 years of age and have completed one year of college or work, or be at least 19 years of age. Counselors have leadership and supervisory responsibility for campers from the time campers arrive until the time they leave for home. Each camp session, counselors are assigned a group of campers to whom they offer emotional support, friendship, and guidance throughout the week. Counselors lead Bible Studies, stay with campers in the cabin, and lead a wide variety of outdoor activities throughout the week. By living and learning together, counselors form special bonds with campers and have the unique opportunity to change their lives forever. Salary is $400/week.

Support Staff
Support Staff are the youngest members of the staff, usually rising seniors and recent high school graduates. They must be a minimum of 17 years of age. Even though all Camp Dickenson staff members practice servant leadership, support staff live this out in the most disciplined and selfless way. Support staff are the backbone of camp, involved in many of the behind-the-scenes work, such as setting up evening events and filling water coolers. In addition to attending to the many details that make camp run, support staff work closely with counselors and assist with camper management, Bible Studies, and outdoor activities. They typically live in staff housing, but may also serve as staff-camper ratio in cabins. This structure enables support staff to build strong relationships with campers, other staff members, and train for future leadership roles at camp. Salary is $265/week.

Resource Staff
Resource Staff are college students who lead activities that require unique skills and expertise. All positions require previous camp experience OR equivalent skills and experience acquired elsewhere. Resource Staff also serve as leaders, participate in Bible Studies, and provide support for the rest of the camp staff, stepping in and fulfilling roles wherever they are needed. Support Staff reside in staff housing, but may also serve as staff-camper ratio in cabins. Salary is $400/week.
