Summer Adult Leadership Team (SALT)
Each summer Slumber Falls Camp employees a number of college age workers to assist with the summer camp program. The program is called SALT, which is an acronym for Summer Adult Leadership Team. This program started many years ago as a way to provide leadership development for young adults and also support the needs of the Outdoor Ministry program.
These SALT workers serve in a program support role doing a variety of tasks from staffing our camp store, lifeguarding, assisting camp directors, helping with arts/crafts, making and serving snacks, staffing our health center, and in some cases serve as counselors when volunteers are in short supply.
We also hire a number of International SALT workers through Camp America. These SALT workers are primarily counselors for each week of the summer program.
Over the years, those who have been part of the SALT program have gone on to provide significant leadership to the church and community. A number have gone on to seminary and now serve the church as ordained ministers. One person shared how her experience in the Health Center moved her to decide on a medical career.
SALT Application – This will start the process!
Would you like to work at Slumber Falls Camp this summer, but not for just for a week as a director, counselor or CIT?
Do you enjoy being at camp and helping out wherever you may be needed, especially behind the scenes. Consider being part of our new “Camp Power” program! This is similar to our SALT program, but Camp Power staff work in the kitchen, doing general maintenance (think service projects), or any of a number of other things that help the operations of the camp.
Please note that these positions are not program staff and do not work with the campers directly, with the exception of serving a meal.
A Camp Power position is a paid position for the summer with all your housing and meals included.
If you have the desire to serve in an outdoor ministry setting and gain valuable skills, we would love to talk with you! Applicants must be at least 18 years of age.
If you want to know more about the Camp Power program, please contact the camp office at 830-625-2212.
