Construction Projects Manager

Job Title: Construction Projects Manager


Camp Eagle started in 1999. We are located in a truly wild and beautiful place in the hill country of Texas. Camp is blessed to steward 1,400 acres along the headwaters of the spring-fed Nueces River and filled with limestone cliffs, woods, trails, and wildlife.

We are all about our Mission.
We exist to: Inspire Christ-like change through, Outdoor Adventure, Authentic Relationships, and Biblical Truth.

Our Playbook and everything we do is built around this. It is woven into the daily fabric of our work here.

We operate year-round with multiple summer and retreat-season programs at our 1,000-bed facility.


Our remote location deepens our community. With roughly 100 people living on-site, co-workers become neighbors, and neighbors become friends. This is a missional community and togetherness is very important to us. Our community is special and it is a big part of why many of our staff serve here.

This also strengthens our culture which is evident throughout this ministry and our community. A few things about our culture stand out.
We highly value a vibrant relationship with Christ and serving people out of the strength of that relationship. We’re not just a ministry; we love Jesus.
We know who we are and we do our best to talk about that often to stay on the same page with the big picture.

Dreaming is in our DNA. We don’t pretend to know everything, so we often spend time dreaming up new solutions and opportunities. This is often true in individual jobs as well. If you love the freedom to find solutions and create opportunities, you’ll love that part of your job.

We tend to value mindset over skill set. If you enjoy collaborating and problem-solving together, you’ll fit right in.

Adventure gets us excited. Many of our staff always have the next adventure in the works or are ready to join one. Whether that’s camping, mountain biking, climbing, kayaking, hiking, exploring caves, fishing, traveling, or trying a new board game - most staff are down to join an adventure you’re cooking up.

We brainstorm. We’re coming up with new ideas, solving problems, and planning together. We serve alongside each other. Often, we are dropping our normal job to do something different: pitching in to help each other. Those are the breaks between our normal work that bring us together.
We play together. We’re sharing a good meal, playing board games in the evenings, celebrating something, playing at the river, or camping at Big Bend.
We reconnect to why we are here. Whether we are jumping in on a summer staff training or helping with some programming we have that touchstone to why we do this. We solve problems through the lens of our mission statement and playbook. We enjoy hearing about a ministry moment for how someone was inspired towards Christ-like change through camp.

We get caught up in the “tyranny of the urgent”, especially during busy seasons. We self-inflict this by our desire to dream up new things to serve our guests. Sometimes this affects some staff more than others which can be frustrating.
We can become siloed during a busy season.
We struggle for reconciliation. There’s a lot of beauty in a community that lives and works in close proximity but it magnifies the need for healthy reconciliation.

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 role of Construction Projects Manager. 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.
