Camp Blessing Texas, Brenham, TX - Activity Leader

Camp Blessing Texas

We are a 15-year-old, award-winning, Christian summer camp located just outside of Brenham, Texas. Our goal and mission is to provide help and hope to people of all abilities through Christ-centered camp experiences. We serve and show the love of Jesus to children and young adults with special needs by giving them the best week of their lives in a barrier-free environment that surrounds them with love, acceptance, and fun.  It's the summer camp experience tailored and made accessible for all, and over 700 campers get to experience this life-changing ministry each year. It is also important to mention that our camp has an on-site clinic for any medical needs that may arise.  This clinic is run by nursing and pre-med students that are supervised by RNs, EMTs, and/or Physicians at all times.  All medication management will be taken care of at our clinic to ensure that campers take their medications on time. This allows us to service medically-fragile campers, which is very unique to our camp.  Along the same lines, we have a specialty diet form that will be given to the chef for all our camper's needs.  Health and safety are thoroughly ensured at Camp Blessing.

Job Description

Activity leaders make up the largest portion of LAF staff at Camp Blessing. All LAF staff are tasked with creating a nurturing, positive, and professional environment while promoting camp policies and procedures amongst staff, volunteers and community. Activity Leaders will instruct, supervise, and provide physical assistance to all participants while teaching God’s truth amidst the fun!

Activities are broken up into two categories: specialty, and non-specialty.  Specialty Activity Leaders will be required to complete extra training and/or certification at the pre-camp required staff training, in order to run the following activities: Ropes, Horse Wrangler and  Lifeguard. Non-specialty Activity Leaders will be responsible for running the rest of the camp activities, including: archery, arts and crafts, fishing/canoeing, water games, music and costume closet. Ensuring safety, encouraging participation, and creating a fun and transformational experience for participants should be made priority as a staff member. 

Ropes Instructor*: Do you love the adrenaline rush of being suspended on a high platform?  This position may be for you!  As a Ropes Instructor, you will be stationed either at our giant swing or on our 50 foot high platform, helping campers and volunteers safely utilize our zipline and rock climbing wall. Training will be completed in order to ensure proper suspension of participants, as well as to include other safety precautions that candidates will need to be aware of.  The ropes activities can be very intimidating to participants, so positive encouragement, connection to trusting God, and knowing when to stop pushing are essential job roles. Nonetheless, these activities are usually camp favorites!

Wranglers*: These staff members ideally have previous horse handling experience and are confident being around such animals. They will assist in the care of the horses and creatively and safely facilitate the interactions and riding experiences for the campers. Horse and/or hippotherapy experience is preferred but not required.

Lifeguards*: Previous lifeguarding experience is a plus, however, it is not required.  Lifeguards will receive lifeguard certification, as well as CPR certification. Safety of our participants is of utmost importance in all activities. Water safety is no exception. Lifeguards will be responsible for all water activities, including: lake and pool festivities.

Worship Leader: Sharing the gospel with our campers, volunteers, and staff is the foundation of Camp Blessing.  Through music and singing, this candidate will spread the word of the Lord in a fun and catchy manner.  Our camp community will be rejoicing in His name through Gospel music to reinforce our daily devotionals.  Ability to play an instrument and sing is required for this position.
