If you like the outdoors, kids and want to serve your Christian calling… Camp Loughridge (CL) might be for you. We are looking for students just like you to to be a counselor with us this upcoming Summer 2017!
At CL, we provide a natural environment for Christian growth. We are a Christ-centered summer day camp for kids where true-life transformation takes place. Camp Loughridge spans 188 acres in the beautiful country near the growing Tulsa Hills area. With 2 pools, a ropes course, 3 lakes, trails, sports areas and other amenities – we keep campers engaged and entertained. If you love working with elementary school kids and alongside other fun loving counselors, then CL is for you. You can make a positive impact in young kids lives, fill your own bucket with faithful experiences, earn some money and stay connected with your friends in Tulsa by having your nights and weekends on your own.
“The best part of working at camp was getting to meet all of the campers and counselors and build relationships with them”
“My favorite memory was when a camper led our tribe in a prayer and told me afterward that it was the first time he had prayed in a group setting before”
“Favorite Camp Experience: Seeing fruits of our collective efforts significantly change the lives of our campers towards a brighter future”
‘The highlight of my summer is watching the transformative growth of so many campers and staff”
“This summer I have grown deeper in my walk with Christ. Being in the wilderness with campers has made me more aware that he is always with me”
COUNSELOR POSITION OVERVIEW:
This opportunity is for those who are interested in teaching, coaching, social or spiritual work as a career. We will hire those who love working with kids, compete in athletics, love the outdoors, and have had positive experience with camps in the past. Your mission is simply to help kids in forming the right qualities of character. You will promote courage, self-discipline, responsibility, respect, perseverance, cultural sensitivity, and friendship.
Your days will be filled with activities outside and you will be working with other high school and college kids as peers. Each day will consist of a variety of activities so you won’t EVER be bored. In fact you will have times of high responsibility, dutifulness, and personal engagement. This is more than a job, it is an opportunity to positively impact the lives of younger campers and yourself.
Your specific responsibilities will rotate and be shared with co-counselors on a weekly basis, meaning you won’t do the same thing week after week. You will be working with a big group of peers, more like being on a team. We will hire approximately 60 college and high school students to work as counselors this summer.
This summer we’re offering 8 weeks of camp. We need most of our staff to work all summer long. However, we will have weeks with fewer campers so you will have the chance to take certain weeks off if you desire (you can indicate those weeks on the application). There will be no camp session offered from July 3-7 so you will have that week off. Our summer staff training week is May 30-June 1 and is required for all staff. Additional training may be required as well, depending on the position you are applying for.
You will have your evenings for yourself. You will NOT be required to work weekends, late evenings or early mornings, but may have additional opportunities work additional hours. However, recognize that the workdays may be long, 7:00-8:00 am start, and only ending when the work is done, approximately 5:00-6:00pm, but every minute will be rewarding, and memorable, and you will be fed great food and snacks.
This job offers the opportunity to grow in your role with the possibility to be on staff for many summers to come. Your experience will provide you with spiritual growth, life-time friendships, financial compensation, and a great resume starter for your collegiate and professional life.
