Summer Staff

Thank you for your interest in serving the Lord at Greenview Bible Camp. Summer staff are short term seasonal positions that are filled by a combination of volunteers and paid staff members.

 

A major change for 2017 is that we are going to operate what is referred to as a “closed camp”. Each session has a specified arrival and departure time. All staff members are expected to remain on site or with the with the group throughout the week. During Day Camps the evenings will be filled with projects, meetings and team building activities. To leave camp during the session you will need permission. Exceptions will be made only for emergencies or pre-approved absences. *Please note that staff will not be required to stay overnight into Saturday like was previously noted on the applications. You will be free to leave on Friday night.*

 

Those that are offered positions at camp this summer will receive a staff manual with their acceptance letter. Please familiarize yourself with this before the beginning of camp.

 

Pennsylvania law requires screening for a history of child abuse is required for all staff members over 18 and all employees regardless of age. Greenview must have these clearances on file before you are able to serve.  Clearances can take several weeks to process and will cost between $20 and $60. Instructions and forms will be provided once we receive your application.

 

Positions are divided into three groups.

 

Leadership Team – Leadership team members must be 18 or older and have graduated from high school. Team member’s responsibilities include planning, sharing in devotionals, interacting with campers and supervising staff.

 

Counselors and Junior Counselors – These positions are open to individuals 16 and older. This group includes those who serve with a cabin group and those who help supervise activities

 

SWAT Team – this category is for individuals 14 and older who serve as helpers during camp. They may be assigned to be with a cabin group, help at an activity or serve in a support role during camp.

 

 

Submission Principles

 

Being part of a team often means submitting to team standards to increase the effectiveness of the group. In Romans 13, Paul talks about submitting to authority. In 1st Corinthians he talks about surrendering our rights for the good of others.

 

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”

Romans 13:1-2

 

“Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak.”

1 Corinthians 8:9

 

In order to best serve at Greenview, you need to be willing to submit to authority and surrender your rights for the benefit of others.

Our SWAT Training program will allow teens who are interested in serving the Lord to spend time with the staff, learning what it takes to serve in the camp setting.
