Camp BlueSky Counselor
Length of Service: 3-10 weeks (end of May to the beginning of August, exact dates TBD)
The counselor’s primary role will be to work alongside BlueSky’s full-time Camp staff and fellow counselors to care for, play with, and guide campers as they engage in fun activities, adventurous challenges, and spiritually-rich community. We want campers to be led by a staff of Christian young adults who are eager to nurture them and create an environment of love, acceptance, and growth. Our campers are Kenyan and multinational students living in Nairobi, Kenya and around East Africa. Nairobi is an extremely diverse and growing city and our campers are likely to become the national and world leaders of the future. There is a great need for them to know Christ, deepen their faith, and grow in character! A counselor will engage in and learn about ministry in a multicultural context while being part of a seasonal team of international peers under the guidance and mentorship of an established leadership team.
Working with other camp staff members to implement camp programs and create a Christ-centered, fun, and safe environment for campers and other staff members.
Invite campers into spiritual and character growth by facilitating small group conversations and teaching the provided curriculum.
Leading, supporting, and playing with campers as they participate in age-appropriate activities.
Memorizing emergency procedures and monitoring campers to ensure compliance with camp rules and prevent accidents.
Maintaining and overseeing proper use of camp facilities and equipment.
Reporting and recording details of incidents, such as accidents or rule violations, to camp leadership staff.
All BlueSky ministry staff are volunteers who contribute or raise the necessary funds to cover the expenses involved in being at Camp BlueSky. The required amount will vary based on travel costs, length of service, and participation outside camp sessions. BlueSky leadership staff will provide resources and coaching for seasonal staff who need to raise financial support for their season of ministry.
