All summer staff members are hired for a Base Team. Your Base Team is the primary position you will be serving in for the summer. Nearly everyone is hired will be a Counselor. Throughout the summer you will be rotated to other teams as the need arise. In a typical summer you may expect to spend six weeks as a counselor and two weeks on another team. We do this to give staff to give staff a change of pace and to give them an opportunity to try something new.
Many of our team leaders never expected they would be suited for the positions they are in now and never would have known if they had not of been rotated into that position. Each position is unique with its own rewards and challenges. The part that remains the same is that each team is fulfilling the mission of helping campers grow closer to Christ and each other.
