Work at Camp

You Belong Here.

New for 2023:  We have created two phases for Summer Camp Staff hiring.
PHASE 1 helps us connect with you as an applicant.
PHASE 2 helps us grow together on a deeper level. This final phase is where we will make our decisions about summer staff hiring.
The following links will direct you to everything you need to research and apply.

Phase 1 - Start Here!

Connect with Camp Directors after completing the QUICK APPLICATION

STEP 1:
Complete the Quick Application Form

STEP 2:
Learn about Camp Roger Overnight Camp and Camp Scottie Day Camp

Watch these videos to see the differences in our programs.
We will discuss these differences in more detail throughout the hiring process and eventually ask for your employment preference.

STEP 3:
Read and Reflect on Camp Roger's Faith & Life Covenant

In this covenant, you will find a number of ways that we, as a diverse group of Christians, seek to live in order to find our center in Christ for the purpose of serving God together at Camp Roger. 

In the full application, you will be asked to agree to the covenant and provide a personal response.  

STEP 4:
Schedule a Meeting

We can't wait to get to know you!
Once your quick application is submitted, one of our directors will reach out to schedule a 30-minute Zoom/FaceTime meeting.
We will discuss the Faith & Life Covenant and answer any questions you have about Overnight Camp and Day Camp.

After this meeting, a member of the hiring team will notify you about moving to Phase 2.

Phase 2

Some applicants will be invited to join us for PHASE 2.
In PHASE 2, we will connect on a deeper level through your FULL APPLICATION and REFERENCES.
We will make our final decisions after this phase.

STEP 1:
Complete the FULL APPLICATION

 Congratulations on completing PHASE 1 and being invited to join us for PHASE 2! Our directors will send you the link to the FULL APPLICATION and direct you through this process as we get to know you better.

STEP 2:
Send the SUMMER STAFF EMPLOYEE REFERENCE FORM to 3 Individuals

Using the link below, forward the SUMMER STAFF EMPLOYEE REFERENCE FORM to three individuals to complete on your behalf.  

We recommend sending the link to them within the week that you complete the FULL APPLICATION and following up to confirm that they have submitted the form. Camp Roger cannot offer a job to any applicant without the submission of three completed reference forms.

STEP 3 (Optional):
Apply for the CAMP ROGER LEADERSHIP INVESTMENT GRANT

New for 2023! Camp Roger will be awarding the Leadership Investment Grant to multiple summer staff employees each year. Applications for this $2500 grant must be completed and submitted before the applicant's Group Interview. Individuals who are offered a summer job will be notified at that time if they have been chosen to receive the LIG.

The grant money will only be awarded to recipients if they complete all requirements. Grant applications will be reviewed, and recipients will be chosen by an anonymous group of individuals. Recipients will remain anonymous.

STEP 4:
Select a GROUP INTERVIEW DAY to Attend 

Applicants who are being considered for counselors, media, and support staff and who have completed the full application, will be asked to choose one of three GROUP INTERVIEW DAYS.
This day will include group activities and games, a Camp Roger tour, time to answer your questions, and a short in-person interview with some of our hiring directors. Be prepared to spend time outdoors!

Note: Kitchen staff applicants may have different interview time slots than the group interview days.
Summer staff positions will be filled as the process progresses through the spring. We do not plan to fill all open positions after the first group interview, but we will know how many open positions we have at any given time during the process.
Similarly, the Leadership Investment Grants will be awarded as we progress with interviews throughout the spring – our goal is to give applicants as much information as possible in order to make a fully informed decision before accepting a job offer.
