Join Our Staff

So you’re looking for a summer job where you can…

  • make new friends
  • simplify life
  • develop skills
  • get outside and play

And you believe you’ve got what it takes to be a good role model?

Then you may want to join our camp community!  We are…

A Growth-Minded Community

In a word, our mission is GROWTH. We encourage and promote the positive physical, emotional, social, and spiritual development of each camper and staff member. We believe that staff are most effective in helping campers grow when they, themselves, engage their own personal development. As each member is encouraged to do this, together we create a community that embraces challenge and fun, enjoys effort and rest, and celebrates the journey of learning and becoming. In essence, we help one another to grow and flourish.

A Welcoming Community

Each summer, Rockmont hires over 200 individuals from many parts of the world to work with our campers in various roles. They come with unique perspectives, talents, experiences, identities, and leadership styles. Our objective is to live with a wide embrace – to be interested in others enough to get to know them and learn from them, to celebrate and respect our differences, and to practice humility, kindness, and hospitality – as we unite our focus on our common work and purpose.

A Fully-Connected Community

Rockmont has a rich community culture, and that’s possible because we commit to being fully connected. The relationships we build are vital to our mission. We value face-to-face interactions, holy and respectful conversations, careful listening, and playing together. These are best accomplished when we choose to be fully present with the people around us. All residential staff work without their cell phones and other devices (laptops, tablets, iPods, smart watches, etc.), only using them on scheduled days off and nights off.

A Hard-Working Community

Serving on staff involves hard work, long hours, and a big dose of determination. That’s because we’re doing work that matters! It requires each person to focus their time and energy well, but also to be flexible. We hire staff members who take ownership of their work, bring a joyful attitude to each work day, and accept responsibility to do their part in making each camper’s experience positively unforgettable.

A Gospel-Shaped Community

Our staff is composed of young men and women of growing faith and commitment. Together, we are invited to develop practices of listening and reflection, explore the Biblical story, and search out the good news. We believe in the importance of building a community of trust, encouragement, and affirmation where questions, hopes, and discoveries are allowed expression. We press into becoming hospitable people by welcoming and accepting campers and staff of all religious faiths and traditions. This is gospel-shaped discipleship.

An Incredibly Fun Community

Camp is fun! From playing on the waterfront, to singing loudly at Evening Watch, to laughing around the lunch table, there’s no limit to the amount of fun you can experience and cultivate for campers over the course of a summer. We look for individuals who can bring enthusiasm, creativity, playfulness, and a sense of humor to their work.  Summer camp…where fun is in the job description!
