Adventure Staff Positions
The Wilderness Staff at LCCC are responsible for leading campers of all ages in our outdoor experiential program. These staff members spend each day facilitating groups in various activities including team building/initiatives, climbing, caving, high ropes, mountain boarding, mountain biking, and white water rafting. While prior experience in leading those activities is not required, applicants should be comfortable with learning new technical and safety skills, working at heights, explaining games to large groups, and helping campers make connections to the Gospel through their experiences. The Wilderness Staff position is physically demanding and requires a good level of fitness; you don’t need to be a cross-fit super star, but know that it is far from being a sedentary job.
In addition to facilitating adventure activities, Wilderness Staff are a huge part of the rest of the program. While they don’t live in the cabins with campers, they get to invest in a cabin of kids by participating in nightly devotions, praying with counselors, and helping with evening programming.
Wilderness Staff work at camp for ten weeks: three weeks of training, followed by seven weeks working with campers. The starting pay for Wilderness Staff is $1800 with room and board included.
Horse Wrangler Staff
Do you have experience riding and caring for horses? Are you passionate about sharing God’s creation with campers? Wranglers at Ligonier Camp are responsible for leading trail rides, caring for the horses with daily chores, maintaining the barn, and helping kids make connections to the Gospel through their horseback riding experience. Our horseback riding program is intended to give campers a half-day Western-style trail ride around our property. Campers who ride are ages 10 and up, and come with various levels of experience.
Qualified applicants are regularly riding horses, have excellent horsemanship skills, and have experience in basic barn management. They should also be prepared to teach children with various levels of experience (from first-time riders to campers who take lessons) how to tack up, ride Western style, and groom the horses.
In addition to running our horseback riding program, the Wranglers are a support to the rest of the camp. While they don’t live in the cabins with campers, they get to invest in a cabin of kids by participating in nightly devotions, praying with counselors, and helping with evening programming.
Wrangler Staff work at camp for ten weeks: three weeks of training, followed by seven weeks working with campers. The starting pay for Wranglers is $1800 with room and board included.
Can you believe that you could be paid to ride a jet ski for the summer? Well, it’s true. Lake Staff at LCCC are the people who maintain and run our program at our lakefront property. Lake Staff will be spending their days driving our jet skis for tubing campers, lifeguarding at the beach, and supervising the dock area. Other jobs include leading campers in laser tag, playing games, and helping with property maintenance.
Qualified applicants should be strong swimmers. Prior lifeguarding and/or boating experience is preferred by not required. Certification classes for becoming a Lifeguard as well as earning a Boater License are offered during training. Please note that becoming a lifeguard is a physically demanding task that requires the individual to be a very strong swimmer. You should be swimming regularly in preparation if you are interested in becoming a lifeguard.
Lake Staff live with the rest of the Adventure Staff, rather than in cabins with kids. Like the rest of the Adventure Team, the Lake Staff are still required to build relationships with campers through their involvement with the camp programming in the evenings. They attend nightly cabin devotions, spend mealtimes with campers, and participate in the rest of the camp activities.
Lake Staff work at camp for ten weeks: three weeks of training, followed by seven weeks with campers. The starting pay for Lake Staff is $1800.
