S1 E13: Summer Staff: Finding Them in the Findings

Feb 21, 2022 | Podcast

Camp leaders – looking for summer staff? What difference would it make in the recruiting and hiring process if you knew what motivates people to say yes to working at camp? What about in how we support and retain these staff?

Church leaders – wonder what difference a summer working at camp would make for someone who has come through your education and youth programs?

The Camp and Church Leadership project findings around summer staff, gathered through a layered survey process in the summer of 2021, are starting to take shape, and as we are in the midst of finding those that will make ministry happen this summer, the story these numbers tell offers us the chance to be proactive and creative while recruiting, hiring, and setting up our summers staff experience.
