Leadership

Workcamp Leaders—Setup Director, Director, and MC—carry out our mission by encouraging, empowering, and supporting the staff team while building strong connections with those in the community. We depend on our leaders to make camp run smoothly so participants can grow in their relationships with Jesus and communities can be strengthened. Each role is a week-long paid position and requires previous leadership experience and acceptance to our Leaders-in-Training program. There is a minimum age requirement of 25.

Applications for 2018 are now closed

Q: What is Leadership Summit and do I need to attend?

The Leadership Summit is a 3-day training event in early June in Loveland, CO for all Directors and MCs. You’ll examine the ins and outs of your position and meet your summer staff crew as well. It’s a great time for learning, community, and fun that will carry over to your Workcamp experience. All Directors and MCs are expected to attend the summit. (It is not a requirement for Setup Directors).
