SUMMER CAMP STAFF
We would invite you to consider being a part of the fun and exciting ministry of Camp Hopewell. The mission of Hopewell is to foster community that enables one and all to experience the love and wonder of God in the natural beauty of God's creation.
We seek sincere Christians who desire to share Christ and Godly values by example and teaching. Camp Hopewell is a ministry of St. Andrew Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church (USA). We are also accredited by the American Camp Association and follow the standards of the association to the highest degree.
Working at Hopewell has been meaningful to previous staff and can be so for you as well. You will find this a time when you can grow in your own faith and relationship with God. You will develop and sharpen your skills in working with others. Some of our previous staff members have found new direction and clarity for their lives while working at Hopewell.
The work is challenging and the standards are high. At times you may experience fear of failure, but you will find encouragement from people who know that mistakes are opportunities to learn. Within approved guidelines and saftey standards, you will be privileged to help children and youth grow in their own spirituallity.
Working with children and youth, ages 6-16, you will develop leadership skills that will be useful the rest of your life. In addition to leadership, you will also develop communication, problem solving and conflict resolution skills.
A number of staff members have received 2-4 hours of college course credit for their work at camp. Our Director is happy to discuss and work with you and your professors to make an "independent study" course possible. Please check with your school before hand to determine course requirements.
For questions about being a part of our summer camp staff, please email our Director.
