The mission of Pine Ridge is to share and model the message of Jesus in a safe, innovative, and relational setting. This makes Pine Ridge a great place to work! Why? Because the Pine Ridge staff team creates life-changing experiences by serving Christ and allowing youth and children to grow and develop personal relationships with Jesus Christ. If you desire to challenge yourself spiritually, serve Christ, and you have a passion for students of all ages then Pine Ridge might be the place for you!
The 2017 summer season holds much promise as the Camp looks to build on record attendance from the past few summers. Most important, we will have the opportunity to share the love of Christ with every camper that comes. If you want a better idea of our opportunities see below or check out our staff poster
High School Seniors and College Age Opportunities:
Graduating high school seniors and college aged applicants are eligible to serve as Cabin Leaders, Activity Specialists, and in areas of service such as food service and house keeping.
Currently, we are seeking to hire male Cabin Leaders (and we are now considering applicants that will be Seniors in high school next fall or older) and a lifeguard.
These positions are paid and we typically seek applicants that can commit to serving for the entire summer (June 4 - August 16).
High School Age Opportunities:
To volunteer at Pine Ridge applicants must be at least 14 years old (as of June 1). Eligible applicants may serve on our Servant Team (Kitchen, Housekeeping, Grounds) or our Junior Cabin Leader (JCL) Program.
Our Servant Team are the servant hands and feet of Christ to all of the campers and other team members as they serve in the dish pit, dining hall, maintaining the grounds, and cleaning our facilities. JCL's are students entering their junior or senior year of high school that are spiritually mature and desire to be a Cabin Leader with Pine Ridge in their future. The Support Team and JCL applicants are volunteers, typically scheduled for 3 weeks of the summer. Pine Ridge will reward the volunteers with a credit to towards a summer camp session for each week of participation in the program with a value of one week of camp earned after the completion of 3 weeks of service. This credit is not transferable to anyone else, including other family members. Applicants wishing to serve in excess of 3 weeks may do so on a volunteer basis. Other positions (some paid) may be available to high school students that have a certification or skill set that is needed in camp ministry. Interviews for most high school applicants will take place near the spring break time period.
The application process will include completion of an application, completion of 3 personal references, an interview, background checks (for those 18 and older) and a formal job offer. The process is fairly rigorous as we desire to find and hire the very best team.
