Summer Leadership

Must be at least 18 by May

Counselor: at least one year out of high school

We are searching for counselors for three different programs: Group Camp, Day/Travel Camps, and Family Camp. In the interview process, you can let your interviewer know in which program you are most passionate and excited about serving.

Group Camp Counselors: At Least One Year Out of High School

Each week co-counselors (mostly working in co-ed teams) will lead 20-30 junior high and high school students through purposeful and pre-planned experiences using the incredible adventure activities at Glorieta Camps. Displaying the love of Christ, counselors guide campers all hours of the day. They are part of creating flexible schedules that cater to each group’s needs; they lead Bible studies, build relationships and facilitate activities/group development that provide opportunities for scripture to come to life. Counselors sleep in nearby dorms with other counselors unless the group requests otherwise. They assist in daily behind-the-scenes programming and do whatever it takes to keep camp running smoothly (including cleaning, dishwashing and necessary work projects).

Day Camp/Travel Camp Counselors

These counselors work with some of our youngest campers from first thing in the morning at parent drop-off through mid-afternoon when parents pick up their campers! In this program, 1st through 8th grade campers get the unique opportunity to experience adventurous and impactful Christ-centered camp programming designed for campers who are not quite ready for overnight camp. Counselors lead their campers through numerous adventures alongside Bible studies, activities, and group development. These counselors will be split into three teams: one on-site Day Camp team that serves at Glorieta and sleeps in nearby dorms with other counselors and two teams that hit the road with Travel Camp Adventure for the City, which provides the counselors’ meals, travel, lodging and transportation. Travel Team counselors should expect to live on the road for 10 weeks of the summer, traveling to a different location each week. Both Day Camp and Travel Camp counselors should also plan on helping out with the behind-the-scene workload. This means driving vans, washing dishes, cleaning rooms, leading/setting up activities, potentially leading worship, and anything else that may be required to help Day Camp run efficiently and successfully.

Family Camp Counselors: At Least One Year Out of High School

A Family Camp counselor's ultimate goal is to serve families well and to anticipate and meet their needs so that they can grow closer both to each other and to the Lord. To create a space where this growth can take place, counselors act as hosts who serve assigned families with intentionality throughout the week. They also help run all aspects of Family Camp, which requires flexibility and adaptiveness. Sometimes counselors may be called on to be out in front by facilitating activities (mountain biking, ziplines, climbing, etc.), leading Bible studies or group development and running retail locations. On other occasions, they might act as behind-the-scenes support by preparing food, washing dishes, cleaning rooms and setting up or tearing down programmed events.

Wilderness Guides: At Least One Year Out of High School

Wilderness Guide

Wilderness Guides are in charge of each camper’s entire trip and spiritual development within the wilderness. Guides become proficient in backpacking as well as camp activities, first aid, risk management and group facilitation. Guides participate in every part of the wilderness program—when not with campers they cook meals, set up activities and do whatever it takes to make sure the wilderness program runs smoothly.

Family Camp

Family Camp Child Care

Family Camp Child Care staff are patient, responsible and good-humored individuals who have experience with and a passion for working with children under the age of six. Child care staff are involved in all other aspects of camp as necessary and have the option to choose a secondary role in the kitchen, as program support or in retail.

Conferences

Conference Staff

Conference staff first and foremost love Jesus and want to serve Him wholeheartedly by working behind the scenes performing varied tasks each week. These tasks include, but are not limited to washing dishes, running activities, lifeguarding, preparing meals, working in the coffee shop and snack shop, facilitating group development, cleaning camper rooms and conference buildings daily and cleaning all of camp at the end of each session.

Willing to step out of their comfort zones and the box of traditional camp ministry, Conference staff are excited about serving and getting to know campers in non-traditional ways. For example, Conference staff often sit with campers at meals, go to worship services with campers, create moments of conversation and life change in passing interactions in the coffee shop and personally engage with campers in other similar situations.

The desire is for conferences staff to be mature in their relationships with Jesus so that they are able to pour into guest groups on a daily basis. To help keep staff filled up themselves, we provide small group studies, on-campus worship and many opportunities for staff mentorship in a one-on-one setting. Conference staff also support and grow closer to one another through fun and engaging community-building group events.

Service Team Leader: At Least One Year Out of High School

Service Team leaders support high school students for three weeks at a time as they learn about behind-the-scenes service in a hands-on environment. Leaders lead by example, managing students as individuals and as a group while working alongside them, helping teach and mold them in their efforts to be more like Jesus. In this 24/7 position, leaders live with students, train and disciple them, lead Bible studies and plan, organize and run activities for them. This endeavor requires a great deal of responsibility and energy, but most of all, it is imperative that leaders have a heart for servant-leadership.
