We are looking for someone with a strong work ethic and a desire to live and work in a close community to serve. 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 you apply.
Title: Assistant Housekeeper
Department: Guest Services
Reports To: Housekeeping Manager
We exist “to inspire Christ-like change through Outdoor Adventure, Authentic Relationships, and Biblical Truth,” and to use our mission to change the world.
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, consisting of full-time staff, their families, gap-year students, and retreat guides. Since we are far from any large towns or cities, all of our full-time staff live on-site. One example of our distance from town is that it takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to the closest Walmart in Kerrville. Camp Eagle is a beautiful place with many natural resources but calls for a somewhat remote living. Our staff is fairly active and involved in our community and ministry. Generally, we like good food, playing outdoors, and working hard as we are very passionate about our mission statement. We encourage applicants, at a further stage in the hiring process, to visit and ask many questions from various staff about what it is like to live and work here. We are the first to admit that as a community we have many shortcomings but hope to use even those to serve Jesus Christ. Does that sound like something you want to do?
