SUMMER STAFF PROGRAM
The Summer Staff program centers around the spoken and in-spoken witnessing of Christ in their lives, service to those around them, community living, and a deepening walk in their own spiritual life. The Summer Staff serve the campers in roles which require considerable maturity and willingness to grow.
We offer many different opportunities for people to get involved at Camp McCullough. Summer staff is an opportunity to grow in your faith and develop skills that build leadership qualities.
WHAT WE VALUE
At Camp McCullough, we value those who decide to serve on our team. We believe that investing in those who will be on our team is crucial to developing the leaders of today. The three values that we hold in our staff and their experience are: building Christ-like leadership, investing in genuine relationships, and to create fun memories while doing so.
Strong leadership is undoubtedly one of the most important factors in building a thriving Christ-centered ministry. In today's complex and changing world, the need for capable and strong leadership is greater than ever.
Our mission is to help equip and foster genuine leadership in all of our staff while investing in their future by developing their personal maturity. Allowing staff to discover the identity of true Christian leadership in the heart of our ministry. We believe that authentic leadership is found when disciplined in a loving and present environment.
"Let us not become tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have had opportunity, let us do good to all people" Galatians 6:9-10
Develop Christ-like relationships
The gift of the Christian community is such an important part of love because within the context of these relationships we are able to experience the real love of Jesus. Nothing expresses the love of Jesus more than daily interactions with others.
We believe that community is key when developing our staff. The relationships forged at camp can be key to the journey that we are walking with Christ. Recognizing our need for faith-centered relationships helps lead us to places where we can build new friendships, especially those that God is leading us towards.
"Let us consider how we may help one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up on meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another." Hebrews 10:24-25
ENJOY THE FUN AND BEAUTY OF CAMP MCCULLOUGH
Being apart of a camp summer staff is an experience like no other. No other place are you able to invest in your future as a leader and have the time of your life at the same time. One of the key values that we hold in our summer staff program is that we consistently pour into an atmosphere that is fun and adventurous. We believe that while serving at Camp McCullough, our staff will have one of the best summers of their life. One where they were able to make lasting memories in a beautiful place.
Valuing the importance of fun is something that can be lost in a lot of job environments and could be one of the barriers keeping one from growing to their potential. No journey holds more weight than one that is filled with laughter and joy.
“God has given me cause to laugh, and all who hear of it will laugh with me." Genesis 21:6
SUMMER STAFF POSITIONS
Each of the positions at camp are important to the entirety of our operation. We all work together to present the most genuine expression of the Gospel message to our campers and guests. Our desire for all of our staff is that they encounter a new face of Jesus, leading them to trust in his power to break down strongholds that are present in their lives. The programs that we offer can range; ranging from full summer commitments or even simply a week. Each position at Camp McCullough serves in a unique role; whether serving campers as a counselor or preparing meals for guests as a part of our kitchen. While every position may look different, their assignment remains the same; make known the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Camp McCullough is a mission-based organization that drives to encourage and walk with young people as they grow in their personal faith. We hold our counseling staff to a higher standard in which they will pursue Jesus in all their interactions while serving. Our counselors will be surrounded by young people from a variety of ages: helping to foster the love of the Gospel in their lives. We do this by building intentional relationships with young people, participating in a variety of experiences through which the love of Christ can be heard and seen.
We believe that our programs are designed to be a medium through which the Gospel can be experienced and powerfully felt. Counselors have the incredible experience of sharing this with campers and creating lasting impacts. The counseling staff has an incredible mission to reach young people and show them the reckless love of the Gospel.
The soul mission of this ministry is to reach those whom we encounter through the fun of camp. By showing the power of the Gospel through simple means that are lost to the average eye. Whether it is by serving a warm meal, keeping a clean facility, or watching guests enjoy the water: The Gospel's love is reaching each person we encounter. That is the goal for our support staff, to create a place where our simple interactions are the testimony to the love of Jesus.
Support staff serves our guests in three unique ways. Whether in the kitchen helping serve great delicious meals, helping run fun activities on maintenance, or teaching kids how to swim as a lifeguard: each role is valued. Camp cannot run without these individuals. We believe that this program is best suited for those who wish to learn new skills and practice loving others like Christ did.
SUMMER CREW LEADS
Crew leaders are the backbone of the staff programs here at Camp McCullough. Each summer we believe that our mission is only as strong as our leaders, that is where our crew leaders come in. Individuals that are a part of the leadership team are those who will be the face of Camp McCullough in many different areas. Whether that is through their relationships with their specific teams, leading Bible studies, showing hospitality to our guests, etc. Leads have the amazing privilege of pouring into every encounter they have spent with us. We believe that those who wish to serve on our leadership team are equipped to be revolutionaries in every circle they are in, leading like Christ.
