Summer Employment

 

About Summer Employment

We are so pleased that you’re interested in working at High Hill Christian Camp. Our summer employees are what make camp work. Here are a few frequently asked questions that you may have. Scroll down to see available jobs and their descriptions.

I'm not a Certified Lifeguard - How do I get Certified?
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE CERTIFIED WHEN YOU APPLY FOR THIS POSITION.  Most of our guards get certified after they’ve been hired.  Many go through their local YMCA, so that’s a great place to start.  Many local pools/aquatic centers also do certifications.  Also check with any colleges in your area – if they have a pool, they probably do certifications.
What dates do High Hill summer employees work?

For 2021, our summer staff will come in on June 13th to begin a week of training. Our last week of camp is over on August 14th. There are some opportunities to work an extra week or two at the end of the summer based on our rental groups.

Do we get any time off?

Typically, we have a few free weekends that you would be allowed to go home or just hang out at the camp without working.  

How much do you pay?
Our summer staff pay begins at $250/week with a pay raise every year you return (up to 3 years or as deemed by the director). You get paid additionally for any weekends worked. This might not sound like a lot, but remember that all your meals during camp are provided, and you don’t have to pay for gas to drive to and from work.
What kind of things will be expected of me?

First, and most importantly, you will be expected to have a strong relationship with Christ that is evident through your daily behavior.  Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus, who came not to be served but to serve (Phil. 2:5; Mt. 20:28).  We will expect you to maintain an atmosphere of teamwork and encouragement not only with your fellow employees but also those attending camp as campers and faculty.

Your day to day duties will vary based on which position you are hired for.  Click on any available job below to view the scope of responsibility and position summary.

Will I be able to spend time with campers?
This is really something that depends on you and how you work. When your duties are done you are free to spend time with campers. In the evenings, our staff is required to be at worship sessions. You won’t have time to be involved with family groups or teach classes, though.
