Things To Consider When Applying

Christian Formation:

The mission of Camp All Saints is sharing the glory of God in creation and the love of Christ in word and deed. 

Camp All Saints is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas. Reflecting the basic principles of the Christian Faith, Camp All Saints provides quality programs and facilities that promote positive character development. All persons in the employ of the camp are expected to be familiar with and supportive of the basic polity and practice of The Episcopal Church.

Christian formation is the attitude of being a lifetime student in your faith.  This is important to model for young people in all areas of the camping program.  A creative response to programming; how is archery like our prayer life?  Is wind to a sail like the Holy Spirit in our Life?  When looking for a leader in a Canoe where do you look?

In other words, how do we take what we do from day to day and “FORM” questions that nurture our faith?


Part of a larger team:
The scope of work to be done at Camp All Saints is very large.  Staff have many roles here and are all partnered with each other so we might accomplish our mission.  Departments include, administrative, year round program staff, food service, hospitality, maintenance, summer deans and our summer camp staff.  


A Waterfront Camp:

Lifeguarding:  Camp All Saints is located on Lake Texoma and enjoys a beautiful waterfront.  Activities include; swimming, canoeing, sailing, kayaking and fishing.  Each of these activities requires the presence of a lifeguard be present to supervise the activity.  If you are not a lifeguard, camp all saints will support a full time summer counselor, head counselor (who has a signed contract with the camp for the upcoming summer season) up to $150 of a successfully completed lifeguarding class. 


Ability to get along with others: 

Camp is a dynamic work environment. It is the primary duty of staff to be responsible for the students in your care.  Each employee/volunteer is expected to learn the camps discipline model (designed for classroom management), working with different age groups and skills necessary to create a positive environment with children, co-workers and guests.


Reliable

Staff are expected to be reliable.  To participate in camp there are schedules for staff, intended to provide time off, nested in the camper schedule that is designed to follow the program.  Staff who are not reliable tend to damage both the rotation of time off and may also impact the camper experience. 


Flexible

Schedules can change suddenly for a number of reasons.  They may simply be a response to a learning opportunity, weather, broken equipment etc….  Staff who do well in camp tend to adapt well to challenges posed by moving or changing schedules.


Willing to try new skills:

Staff, are always challenging campers to try new things.  This is also true for staff.  We have many program areas and we will need applicants who are willing to; become a lifeguard, archery instructor, music leader, game leader, media center assistant… and the list goes on.  We have two weeks of staff training to help staff prepare to step into new leadership roles.  Applicants who will do well tend to be willing to give all of these areas their best effort.
