Staff Benefits

Rockmont Professional Development Network

One key benefit to being a Rockmont staff member is the opportunity to join and participate in the Rockmont Professional Development Network.

It is comprised of leaders in business, technology, health care, law, medicine, education and more, with one thing in common: they have been staff members at Camp Rockmont!

The primary purpose of this group is to provide professional development, mentoring and networking opportunities to qualified members of the Rockmont staff as they “graduate” from their summers working at camp and begin their professional careers.

Members of this group recognize the value of serving on the staff at Camp Rockmont. They understand that the character traits, work ethic, commitment to excellence and leadership skills gained as a Rockmont staff member build a firm foundation for one’s career. This network enables them to connect and work together with Rockmont values as a common core, and especially to mentor recent Rockmont staff members who are beginning their professional careers.

Engaging Community

  • We’re committed to real, intentional and interdenominational Christian community, and the friendships forged in this are one of the most compelling benefits of working on staff at Rockmont. 
  • Plus, engage your faith by joining in meaningful discussions around Christian faith, politics, and culture through Java N Jesus, a once-a-week, optional, coffee, scones, and dialogue time between friends of faith.

 

Making and saving money

  • Ditch the summer lease and save most of the money you make during a summer at Rockmont! 
  • With room and board all summer long, including a full-service kitchen with three meals a day and vegetarian and dietary accommodations, residential staff have an incredible opportunity to save most of the money earned throughout the summer.
