Team Leader (Activities, Administration, Spiritual Life/Community, Facilities)
The mission of the team leader is three-fold. First, he/she is responsible to partner with the Director to champion the mission, vision, and values of Camp Kerusso by working directly with the Counselors, program, and campers. Secondly, the Team Leaders will be responsible to carry out and oversee ALL aspects of Camp from activities to spiritual development and administrative work, with enthusiasm, passion, and energy while constantly keeping the safety of all campers and staff in mind. Lastly, the Team Leaders will be asked to disciple a small group of Counselors. This call to discipleship will include but will not be limited to a short Bible study each morning, praying with and for each Counselor, and keeping an eye on your team during the day, looking for specific ways to help, lift up and encourage each person individually.
Our Counselors are called to champion the mission, vision, and values of Camp Kerusso by letting the love of Jesus flow through them as they interact, enjoy, protect, and provide for the needs of our campers. They are the first line of activity and fun at Camp Kerusso, and our counselors will set the tone for the rest of the camp. They are called to lay their own agenda’s aside and make the needs of each child the priority. They are the very hands and feet of Jesus, and they are the face of Camp Kerusso.
