Support Staff Positions:
Camp Luther will be hiring one (1) maintenance assistant and three (3) kitchen assistants for this upcoming summer. Unlike our other summer staff positions which require you to have completed your freshman year in college, these roles are available to anyone who is 18+ years old. These positions also allow you to serve camp and be a part of our summer staff team without the camper-care responsibilities that are the focus of most of our other summer staff positions. To apply for these positions, please request a staff application through the NLOMA website. Once your application has been submitted, you will be contacted by a member of the Camp Luther staff team to set up an interview.
All staff undergo two weeks of intensive staff training, covering a variety of topics, including ministry leadership, faith formation, child and youth development, facilitative leadership, program planning, and risk management. This time is also focused on personal formation and community development. Staff training is required for all staff and is May 30-June 11, 2017.
Program Coordinators, who serve in a variety of leadership roles during the summer, begin staff training on Thursday, May 25.
The summer begins for most summer staff members with staff training on Tuesday, May 30. Summer programming starts on Sunday, June 11 and concludes on Tuesday, August 22. Variable departure dates may be available, but hiring preference is given to candidates able to complete all weeks of camp.
Work and Time Off:
You will work very hard if selected to a part of the Camp Luther staff team. Staff work from early in the morning to late in the evening, with very little personal time. Counselors spend nearly every hour of the day with their campers, while Program Coordinators have grueling and unglamorous duties to fulfill each day. This is the hardest job you'll ever love. All staff will receive on average one day off per week. In addition, all staff receive one hour off each day.
Salaries range from $2700-$3000 over the course of the summer, depending on position and experience. All summer staff members are additionally provided with full room and board.
Summer Staff Application Process:
Camp Luther is a part of a national organization of Lutheran camps called NLOMA (National Lutheran Outdoors Ministries Association). You may request a staff application through the NLOMA website. The application will be sent to you via an email link. Once you have filled out the application, if you selected Camp Luther as your first choice camp, we will be forwarded your application and will be in touch to set up an interview.
Program Coordinator Application Process:
Because Program Coordinators serve in important leadership roles during the summer, an additional application is required. If interested in serving in one of our PC roles, please fill out this application and return it to Kardia at email@example.com. We will then be in touch to set up an interview.
