Counselor: at least one year out of high school
We are looking for counselors for three different programs: Group Camp, Adventure for the City, and SUmmer . In the interview process, you can let your interviewer know which program you are most passionate/excited about serving in.
Group Camp Counselor
On the Group Camp campus, each week, co-ed partners lead 20-25 junior high and high school students through purposeful and pre-planned experiences using incredible adventure activities at Camp Eagle while displaying to students the love of Christ. Guide campers all hours of the day, building relationships and leading activities that will provide opportunities for scripture to come to life. Sleep in nearby dorms with other counselors unless the group requires counselor sponsors.
Summer Camp/Teen Camp Counselor
At the Summer Camp campus, 1st through 10th grade campers come for one or two weeks of adventure camp. Staff will be partnered with same gender partners as they stay in the cabins with campers and lead them in adventure activities, many unique to Summer Camp such as Mountain Biking, shooting sports and more.
Adventure for the City Counselor
These counselors will be working with younger students (1st-6th grade) from morning to mid-afternoon. They will take care of them, lead them through Bible studies, adventure pieces, and group development. These counselors will work both at Glorieta and also with our travel camp, Adventure for the City. When traveling, they will stay at host homes provided by the church we are partnering with. When on-site, staff will sleep in nearby dorms with other counselors. Counselors should plan on helping out with the behind-the-scenes 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. Must like travel and adventure!
Wilderness: at least one year out of high school
Similar to a counselor position, but instead of sleeping at Main Camp in the dorms or cabins, Wilderness Guides will be bunk at Wilderness Base Camp log cabins or sleep under the stars at various campgrounds in the Camp Eagle backcountry. Plan and execute trips for groups of 5-15 into 2,400 acres of Texas hill country.
Assist camp-wide health needs for all guests and campers. Necessary characteristics include organized, detailed, assertive, and self-motivator. Confident in medical skills and ability to stay calm and in control in all situations. Nurses should be ministry and servant minded.
