Cabin Leaders

What can I look forward to as a summer staff member at Riverside?

Our desire is that our summer staff would first and foremost walk away from the summer knowing more of our Father's heart, our Savior's life, and our Spirit's power. WE WANT YOU TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE LOVE OF CHRIST! That is our number one goal. Our number two goal is that summer staff would be better equipped and able to share the love and heart of God with others. This is a program designed to help you grow in Christian leadership. At Riverside we are very intentional about spiritual development. We have structured discipleship all summer long, ranging from staff devotions, to set times you can spend with God, to personal one-on-one discipleship opportunities. It is our greatest desire for you not only to minister to others during the summer, but that you also come to know Christ in a deeper way in your personal life as well!

What do we do each week?

Campers stay in cabins with two cabin leaders (That's you!) and participate in everything on the main camp site. This means that you get to lead them throughout their day, build relationships with youth, have fun, live life with your campers, and point your campers to Christ! Cabin leaders have responsibilities including helping with program events such as chapel, Bible studies, campfire, skits, pool, camp store, shares, and art fun. Cabin leaders are also responsible for teaching and at times disciplining youth. Cabin leaders are expected to be good role models by being appropriate in all things, at all times, and following ALL camp rules. Cabin leaders may occasionally find themselves on "support" staff. Support staff weeks are spent primarily working on maintenance or in the kitchen. During support weeks, all staff are expected to stay at camp and be involved in the programming each evening, except for a possible night off.

Other benefits include: *Extended holiday time off over Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. *Paid vacation and sick days *SIMPLE IRA matching program *Health insurance We love and value our staff, and continue to pray this prayer, "Lord, do whatever you want to do in us, so that you can do whatever you want to do through us."
