Adventure for the City Program Director

We are looking for someone with a strong work ethic and a desire to live and work in a close community to serve in the much-needed role of Adventure for the City Program Director. We are passionate about our mission statement and are looking for a like-minded person who is willing to serve alongside us. Please thoughtfully consider each part of our mission statement, job description, and description of our ministry and community before applying.

To inspire Christ-like change through
Outdoor Adventure
Authentic Relationships and
Biblical Truth

The makeup of our community determines a large part of what it is like to live and work here. We have about 80 people who live on-site year round, comprised of: full-time staff and families, gap-year students, and retreat interns. Since we are far from any large towns or cities, all of our full-time staff lives on-site. For example, the time to travel to the closest Walmart in Kerrville is one hour. Camp Eagle is a beautiful place with many natural resources but calls for somewhat remote living. Camp Eagle recently went through a fast growth phase and is seeking to be excellent in all we do and become a leader in our industry. However, just like each of us, we have many shortcomings but hope to use even those to serve Jesus Christ.
