A lot of the work the leadership team does goes unseen by other employees. They create their own effective checklists, schedules, and programs which ensure things run smoothly at camp.
Here are a few of the qualities we're looking for in our camp supervisors.
1) We're looking for people who have a heart for service. As a leader, you'll have plenty of opportunities to clean bathrooms at camp. You could ask (or tell) other employees to do it for you, but a servant leader will take these opportunities to work with your staff.
Some people think that being a supervisor means you don't have to get your hands soiled, but the reality is that moving up in the PSR hierarchy means you'll have even more opportunities to do the dirty work at camp.
2) Leaders who understand the value of balancing confidence and humility. The leadership team is comprised of people who usually aren't thinking of camp as a full-time career. This means that while they might have a history of camp experience, they aren't going to perfectly execute plans 100% of the time. A camp leader knows this, and also knows when to apologize and when to hold firm on principle.
Usually, people don't offer an apology because it makes them feel like they are wrong. A leader knows that they will be wrong sometimes, and admitting they made a mistake is not a failure.
3) Leaders who know how to place others before himself or herself. Leaders eat a lot of cold pizza, drink flat soda, and sometimes even go without when serving others. A leader doesn't mind eating the bag of chips no one else chooses in the variety pack (which, is inevitably Fritos) and doesn't complain about 'getting shafted' because the good food ran out.
Food is just one example of putting others first, I'm sure we can think of others.
4) Finally, our team of supervisors makes a commitment to being Christian leaders. I could write a few pages about this subject, but it boils down to using Christ as our example in how we should act. Christ had the opportunity to play favorites (Matt. 20:23), discard his Father's work (Matt. 4:8-10), and associate with those who were popular in society.
Instead, He ministered to the poor, gentiles, harlots, tax collectors, lepers, etc.. equally.
What wonderful love.
So, if you feel inspired or called to camp ministry let us know by filling out an application next month.
We'll see you at camp,
