URBAN MISSION CAMP - SUMMER ASSISTANT CAMP DIRECTOR
Part-time Position Available
Summer Assistant Camp Director – GSPC Urban Mission Camp
GSPC is looking for a responsible, energetic, motivated young adult to serve as the Assistant Camp Director for its 2019 Urban Mission Camp program.
About the Urban Mission Camp Program:
GSPC’s Urban Mission Camp program runs from June 1 through August 2 in eight individual, one-week camps. Based out of Baytreat, GSPC’s waterfront fellowship facility located on Mobile Bay, the camp is targeted for high-school and college-age young people who participate in a busy week of urban mission, fellowship, and theological reflection. Participants will work in groups alongside professionals and adult volunteers to work and connect with a variety of people and places in need at work sites around the Mobile area. Participants’ urban mission work may range from preparing and serving food to the needy, observing and helping in social services activities, gardening or cleaning, and walking through examples of places visited on a typical day for the urban homeless. Time is provided for participants to enjoy the Baytreat facility, with coordinated spiritual reflection as well as outdoor fun. There is a planned “beach day” as well, where participants will visit Gulf Shores.
This position is offered with the potential to start Monday, May 27, 2019 and will end on or about August 4th. Camp weeks begin Saturday, June 1 and the last camp week ends Friday, August 2nd. Because of the program schedule, GSPC will provide room and board at Baytreat for the Assistant Camp Director while camps are operating. Financial compensation is available.
