Cameron Boys Camp (Boys) and Camp Duncan (Girls), year-round wilderness camping programs based in North Carolina, are seeking a full-time counselor/teacher. We are an intense, relationship-based ministry to at-risk youth (11-15 year olds) in a wilderness setting. Living in the outdoors year-round, fishing, climbing trees, paddling 200 miles down a river in Florida or Georgia, camping by a lake in North or South Carolina, and backpacking the Appalachian Trail in Virginia - all are part of the camp adventure.
The heart of our ministry is building a daily partnership and relationship with youth. Three counselor/teachers (chiefs) provide the primary care and leadership for a group of 10 boys/girls. They live with the group in a primitive campsite setting with the purpose of helping troubled youth confront and resolve past issues and current life conflicts while developing healthy relationships and living habits. The chiefs facilitate a group process where problems are resolved as they arise and a caring, helpful environment is developed in the group.
Activities include tent building, fixed campsite maintenance, routine chores, weekly cookouts, a hands-on experiential education program, woodcarving, educational daytrips, trip planning and extended expedition trips such as two- to four-week river/canoeing, hiking/backpacking, lake and educational road trips.
Applicants should have a passion for Christ and youth. We are looking for single, male applicants with a BS/BA and looking for a mission to immerse themselves in for at least two years. They should welcome challenges and be no stranger to hard work and physical activities (sawing trees, wood chopping and carrying heavy objects like trees, backpacks, canoes, etc…). Other necessary qualities include a love for the outdoors, enjoys working with others and being part of a team, excellent physical health, strong leadership abilities, a willingness to learn and grow, and a positive servant attitude. They should possess a good sense of humor and adventure, strong communication and relational skills, self-initiative and emotional stability.
Salary plus benefits including housing/utilities, medical/dental insurance, paid vacation and retirement program.
Please email or mail a cover letter and resume and include days/times when we can contact you to conduct an initial phone interview to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more info, check http://www.campcareers.org or apply online at: http://bit.ly/1XbV8nj
