Welcome to the Summer Staff Application Page
Thank you for your interest in becoming an Alto Frio summer staffer. This is a great opportunity for you to serve god and enjoy fellowship with new friends. Attached you will find the application for the position. Please take a few minutes to read the position description before filling out the application.
As a summer staffer at Alto Frio, your spiritual life is very important to us. We expect you to be a Christian, be an active part of a body of believers, and have core beliefs that adhere to biblical teachings. Over the course of the summer you will go through a discipleship program with the rest of the summer staff to help you grow spiritually. You will also have the opportunity to attend worship services in the evenings, after dinner.
Another major component of the summer staff position is the physical aspect. The hours are long and the work is difficult at times. You will be asked to serve and clean up meals, clean
dorms after groups leave, lifeguard, work on the ropes course, work in concessions, and any other odd jobs that may need to be done around camp. These are not the glamorous jobs that one thinks of when they think of camp. They are the necessary jobs, however, to make camp run smoothly so the teens attending camp may hear the good news.
Summer staffers will be expected to maintain a level of professionalism that makes guests feel welcomed and wanting to return. This would include dressing appropriately, being courteous to guests and fellow employees, being punctual, and completing tasks efficiently. Upon hiring, summer staffers may be required to have a health screening and drug test.
So what do you get out of all of this? For starters, summer staffers have paid room and board, meals are provided by Alto Frio as long as there are guests on the grounds, and a weekly
stipend. You have the opportunity to receive you lifeguard certification free of charge if you stay the whole summer. We as full time staff will show you the same level of courtesy and respect that we expect to be shown. Lastly, and most importantly, you get to share in the work that brings others to know Christ. Without summer staff, there would be no summer camps at Alto Frio.
As part of the application, you must include email addresses for your pastor or youth minister and a personal reference. You will also need a current photo of yourself, which you will email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
