Do you want to build friendships, create community, and learn valuable life skills? As a Procter staff member you will help youth ask hard questions, engage with people outside their neighborhood, explore and share their faith. You’ll help families connect with each other and the natural world. You’ll work hard, play hard, and spend your summer outdoors.
Serving on a camp staff may be one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs you will ever have. At Procter the camp staff is intentional about sharing God’s love with one another and our campers; children and adults. We seek and serve Christ in all people with whom we interact at camp, modeling joy, respect, and inclusiveness, to create a community where everyone feels welcome.
Procter is a ministry center of the Diocese of Southern Ohio, with camps for children, youth and families. We are part of the Episcopal church, and believe all people are loved by God no matter who they are or what their life is like. Christian Formation is an important part of our program; we share stories, learn together, say prayers and sing every day. Campers and staff members of all (or no) faith backgrounds are welcome. We also canoe, fish, have campfires, sleep outside, create art, do chalk murals, play sports and wacky games, and explore the natural world around us. Check out photos from last season on our Facebook page for a peek into the camp program. Serving on a camp staff is a formation experience in itself; while care and safety for campers is always a staff member’s first priority, personal, faithful and professional growth results from serving and living in community.
Procter will hire 15-20 staff members: Counselors, Healthcare Providers, and a Leadership Team. Some counselors will also serve as Lifeguards. Read the job description highlighted above, and hiring timeline… then submit an application online!
