Camp Staff 2018

Be part of something bigger than yourself

Do you want to build friendships, create community, and learn valuable life skills? As a Procter staff member you will help youth ask hard questions, engage with people outside their neighborhood, explore and share their faith. You'll help families connect with each other and the natural world. You'll work hard, play hard, and spend your summer outdoors. Apply to spend your summer at Procter as part of the 2018 camp staff.

Serving on a camp staff may be one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs you will ever have. At Procter the camp staff is intentional about sharing God’s love with one another and our campers; children and adults. We seek and serve Christ in all people with whom we interact at camp, modeling joy, respect, and inclusiveness, to create a community where everyone feels welcome. 

About Procter Camp

Procter is a ministry center of the Diocese of Southern Ohio, with camps for children, youth and families. We are part of the Episcopal church, and believe all people are loved by God no matter who they are or what their life is like. Christian Formation is an important part of our program; we share stories, learn together, say prayers and sing every day. Campers and staff members of all (or no) faith backgrounds are welcome.  We also canoe, fish, have campfires, sleep outside, create art, do chalk murals, play sports and wacky games, and explore the natural world around us. Check out photos from last season on our Facebook page for a peek into the camp program.

Serving on a camp staff is a formation experience in itself; while care and safety for campers is always a staff member's first priority, personal, faithful and professional growth results from serving and living in community.

Staff Structure

Procter will hire 15-20 staff members: Counselors, Healthcare Providers, and a Leadership Team. Some counselors will also serve as Lifeguards. Read the job description highlighted below, and hiring timeline... then submit an application online!

Counselors are the primary caregivers for campers. Counselors are responsible for all aspects of the camp program, comprised of cabin life, Christian formation program, and recreational activities. This includes planning, facilitating, coordinating, and cleaning up from activities throughout the camp session, guiding campers in their personal growth, faith life and daily living skills.

The camp Health Care Provider is a partner to the leadership team. They are a resource to the community, ensuring health and safety of everyone on site, and supporting the work of the counselors.

The Leadership Team will be comprised of a few experienced counselors or leaders to assist the Director in implementing the camp program.  The Leadership Team will be responsible for managing morning formation (planning and implementation), waterfront and lifeguarding, and afternoon and evening activities.
