Applicant Requirements

Summer staff must have completed at least one year in college before being hired at EPCC. Because of the impact that our staff’s personal lives can have on the campers, first and foremost we look for individuals who have a strong growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We then look for individuals who have a passion for sharing the love of Christ with young people. Summer staff should be able to articulate their faith in words and live it out before the campers on a daily basis. Because we are also a physically active camp, it’s important that you be able to handle the physical strains that go with working at a summer camp. Most of our staff will be trained to facilitate our high and low ropes courses and will often be called upon to lead hikes and recreational activities. As leaders we are to be servants first. Philippians 2 reveals that Jesus took the form of a servant by humbly submitting to the Father’s will and sacrificing Himself. Jesus calls us to follow His example, and in doing so we find satisfaction, joy, and reward. You may be asked to help in a wide range of areas throughout the summer; your willingness to joyfully serve wherever needed is expected. Applications can be scanned and emailed to nate@elporvenircamp.com or melinda@elporvenircamp.com or you can mail them to the camp at HC 33, Box 180, Montezuma, NM 87731. Applications are due no later than March 30, 2017.
