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.

 

Duties and Responsibilities:

The Assistant Camp Director will support the Camp Director in the efficient and effective running of the camp’s program of activities. This may include, but not necessarily be limited to:

·         Helping prepare Baytreat to receive a new group of participants each week

·         Taking actions to help participants meet the daily schedule

·         Monitor participant activities around Baytreat and advise youth and adult chaperones regarding safety issues

·         Having FUN

                       

This position will require the individual to conduct a very broad range of activities, some of which are physical, in roles that may be supportive or may be as a leader. This position assists the Camp Director in providing for a program of activities that exposes participants to working with those in need, the homeless, and those with intellectual and developmental challenges. The program is conducted in a theological setting, acknowledging God’s directive to serve others. In addition to following the direction of those in supervisory positions, the individual will need to be able to make and act on independent decisions and work with others, especially youth and adult advisors. Typical to camps of this nature, hours will be long, physical stamina is a consideration. Personal demeanor and communication skills, particularly an ability to listen, comprehend, and converse are a great part of the job.

 

Time Commitment:

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.
