Our Summer team consists of resident Bible School staff and seasonal volunteers. The majority of our volunteers have attended our nine-month Bible School program or one of the affiliated Torchbearers International schools, and are personally known to us. All of our team members desire to share Christ's life and have demonstrated a love for our Lord Jesus Christ in accordance with God's Word. Each Staff member must have a completed background check and references before being accepted. Every summer, parents identify our staff as His Hill Ranch Camp's greatest asset. A two-week training period is designed for our summer staff to become educated in camp policies and prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of our camp ministry.
There are many different volunteer positions at His Hill Ranch Camp! Each volunteer plays an important role during the summer. Read about these volunteer positions below.
Our Counselors function as the primary caregivers for campers during their stay at His Hill Ranch Camp. Although being a counselor can be demanding, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, Christ uses these circumstances to teach us dependency on Him.
Our media team is responsible for documenting all aspects of camp through photography and (limited) videography in order for campers to be reminded for years to come of how Christ worked in their lives at camp. Responsibilities include daily uploading photos of photos, weekly media slideshow productions, chapel audio recording, dish washing, camper interaction and camper supervision.
Our Special Activity Director(s) are all about the FUN of camp! The purpose of our SAD program is to provide a platform for counselors to build relationships with campers through shared experience in order that they may have greater opportunity to communicate the person of Christ to campers.
Our Camp Health Officer (CHO) must be a physician, RN, LVN, or a person with an American Red Cross EMR certificate or its equivalent. The CHO is on call 24 hours a day for all medical needs: first aid or medicinal. As campers may be discouraged due to injury, sickness, or homesickness, the CHO will spend significant time encouraging campers to trust Christ in where He has them.
The barn is an active area of the summer camp program involving supervision and care of the horses and barn facilities. Members of this team gain experience in horseback riding and teaching while also gaining perspective in how to relate horseback riding to one's walk with Christ.
Nothing gets campers moving like the choices of the snack bar! The snack bar manager oversees the management of camper and staff accounts throughout the week, keeping inventory supply, and most importantly interacting face to face with campers with joy and patience.
Our office assistant helps manage and facilitate the daily functions of camp under the leadership of the Camp Secretary. The position consists of parental interaction and office clerical work but still has plenty of involvement during camper activities and discipleship in the support staff.
Our junior staff allow camp to look, feel, and run as great as it does! This program allows young adults ages 15-17 to volunteer through the following positions: Housekeeping assistant, Kitchen Assistant, or Maintenance Assistant. These volunteers serve physically whole also having the opportunity to grow spiritually through chapels and living in community with the support staff.
Each year, 40-60 volunteers serve at His Hill. All of our volunteers desire to share Christ's life and have demonstrated a love for our Lord Jesus Christ in accordance with God's Word.
Volunteer positions include: counselors, housekeeping, maintenance, kitchen assistants, media, office assistant, wranglers, camp nurse, and snack bar manager.
