Working on staff:
Each year, 40 people are selected to be the Camp Arcadia Summer Staff who work from Memorial Day through mid-August. Positions are available in the areas of kitchen, housekeeping, program, facilities caretaking, office, archives and video production. Leadership positions are generally limited to those returning for a second summer on staff or Full Season Staff. We ask that applicants have graduated from high school one year prior to working on Summer Staff. The on-line staff application will be available on December 15, 2017. Priority date for receiving applications is February 1, 2018. Applications will be accepted after that date but positions may be limited.
Full Season Staff (Internship):
Those who are recent college graduates or students taking time off from college are great candidates for Full Season Staff. Working from Memorial Day weekend through the end of October, Full Season Staff can work in any of the Camp departments. They start the season learning and bonding with the Summer Staff, but by mid-August they become the pace-setters of the staff as we transition from Summer to Fall Staff. Often, the Full Season Staff are in leadership positions, but not necessarily. The breadth of experiences gained is great as they often fill many roles throughout the organization as staffing needs arise. Full Season Staff are eligible for the bonus program and a loan repayment bonus. We have need for up to ten Full Season Staff.
Those thinking about working as part of the Camp Arcadia staff, should know that it is:
- A chance to explore your faith and relationship with God as part of a unique Christian community;
- A once-in-a-lifetime chance to make new friends, have a blast as you work and live in an intentional staff community;
- An opportunity to serve this sacred place and the people who renew themselves here, as well as to get to know these wonderful individuals and families; and
- The chance to spend three months on the shores of Lake Michigan, exploring this incredible area.
