Our Summer Camp Experience!
A big part of what makes Ridge Haven a memorable place for summer campers and guests alike is the godly and dedicated summer staff members serving them. Interested in joining this special team during Summer 2017? Below is information about the available positions.
The counselor is a summer-long position with the task of providing leadership and supervision to a specific cabin of assigned campers within a designated age-group. As a counselor your main responsibility will be to devote yourself to the campers. We believe that people understand and appreciate the gospel best within the context of relationships; therefore, your primary duty will be to establish an authentic, meaningful relationship with each camper in your cabin. Counselors should have at least one year of college experience or be at the equivalent life stage. They must be willing to work long hours, have a strong desire for children and youth to know Christ, and set a consistent example of Christian faith.
Camp Summer Intern (CSI)
Camp Summer Interns are needed for the entire summer to serve campers and guests by assisting in the everyday operations of our camps, conferences, and retreats. Working alongside the camp counselors, CSIs must be willing to perform a variety of tasks -- everything from kitchen and grounds work to leading vigorous activities like the ropes courses, climbing wall, and field games -- for long hours while serving all age groups. CSIs should be rising high school juniors, seniors, or college freshmen who are mature, hardworking, and committed Christians.
The Health-Care Assistant will work with Ridge Haven's Registered Nurse (RN) to provide first-aid to campers and staff and to monitor health and sanitation procedures throughout camp. The Health-Care Assistant makes sure medications are safeguarded and administered, and keeps accurate records. This person needs to be a college student or older, preferably with health-care administration experience.

Volunteer Camp Nurse
Ridge Haven is looking for volunteer nurses to serve at this summer's camps. Volunteers can opt to serve anywhere from a week to the entire summer. They will be provided with lodging and meals as well as scholarships for up to two children to attend camp while they are serving with us. For those coming from out of state, we will also pay for any required North Carolina licenses if necessary. If you are a registered nurse or doctor and are interested in ministering to our campers for a week or more this summer, please contact Jessie Fleming at email@example.com.
