A Letter to Prospective Staff
As the administration of Camp Skyline Ranch, please let us share some of our thoughts on camp counseling with you. We would ask that you read through these comments carefully and we request that you prayerfully consider the decision to work at Skyline before contacting us for further information.
Camp counseling is a job for responsible people only. Many college women enter summer camp work with the idea that it will be an eight-week vacation. This is far from true. Camp counseling is for quality people who love children and will place their interests ahead of self in every instance. Camp counselors should consider their job a chance to serve youth as well as an opportunity for personal development.
Helping children is a serious task. Most parents send their daughter to camp because they know the strong influence of a good camp can have a positive and lasting effect on her life. Camp Skyline accepts parent’s trust with deep concern and responsibility. The administration cannot accept the responsibility alone. We employ the best young women we can find to share this responsibility with us.
At Skyline we also feel a very keen sense of responsibility for the spiritual growth of our campers. While we are a non-denominational camp, we endeavor to provide a strong Christian atmosphere for our girls. We are looking for college age, enthusiastic Christian counselors.
We believe in one God, His word the Bible, and what it teaches. We believe that all scripture is inspired by God, and is our final authority for faith and life. We believe in a pattern of living exemplified by Christ, God’s Son. We believe that “life-style evangelism” through our staff members is Camp Skyline’s most active means of following Christ’s example and communicating our beliefs. We support having fun in a chemical free environment, the use of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco are prohibited. The use of profanity is also prohibited. We believe in traditional Christian values that do not violate God’s word and our intent is to honor His word.
The camp staff must set the best example possible. Youth are impressionable so the camp environment must be strong, clean, and wholesome. Campers are under the influence of the camp and its staff 24 hours a day. This is a great challenge. Are you willing to accept your share?
As you can see, camp counseling is a serious business. Honestly, it will be one of the hardest jobs you will ever do and also the most rewarding. It is an inspirational and educational experience.
