Why work at Camp?
Summer camp is a wonderful opportunity to grow spiritually,
emotionally, & professionally.
Working at camp is powerful.
It is a unique and constantly evolving environment where lives are impacted and changed. It is a place where youth can come and inhabit a space where Christ's Love is freely given and expressed in the day to day activities of camp. Every summer, we strive to create a space where change is possible, and we want staff to share in this exciting vision. We also want staff to be excited about sharing from their own life experiences and passions from a perspective of spiritual unity-that being one of Christ's offer to redeem each one of us through the power of his perfect sacrifice and resurrection. Brought together by this collective purpose, summer staff have the opportunity to share with youth their individual journey and story in a loving, caring, creative way.
ACCORDING TO A STUDY DONE IN 2018 on our camper feedback and demographic, Camp Redwood Glen campers were 40% Hispanic, 21% white, 23% mixed race, 8% Asian, and 8% other. Our campers come from a variety of faith, financial, and cultural backgrounds. Campers should feel seen and understood while staff communicate with them, adding to our efforts to create a safe space where campers feel welcomed and valued as individuals. With the care and consideration for what our overall mission is, creating a space where change is possible, and hope in Jesus can be found.
