Arts & Crafts Specialists are responsible for managing the craft activities and facilities at their assigned camp ensuring we are always adequately stocked on supplies and cleaned on a daily basis. They learn and lead a couple dozen crafts and camper "take home" projects including tie-dye, wood burning, coloring, jewelry making, and much more. They report to their site Program Director and participate in skits, evening games and other camp program activities and events as assigned.
You love Jesus. You trust the Bible as God's Word. And you don't just want a "summer job" where you punch in and punch out. You want to develop your skills, grow in your walk with Christ in an awesome community of peers who can support and encourage you.
You're motivated to share your faith in a way that impacts the lives of your peers and will challenge you physically and emotionally as you harness new skills for leading adults and kids alike.
