THANK YOU Thank you for your interest in serving at one or more of our Kids Camps! If you are selected, this will be a tremendous ministry opportunity! We are looking for mature, Spirit-filled Christians who have a genuine love for children. The ability to work in harmony with those whose views may be different is a necessity for a staff member! There is a separate application for OCM Kids Camp Summer Interns at www.okag.org/kidscampintern.

APPLICATION PROCESS All Staff Applications must be filled out and received by the OCM office by May 1st. (This will give OCM time to process 500 – 600 staff applications.)

Any Volunteer Staff Member who serves as a Coach must be 18 years old or older. Because Coaches are responsible for the campers in their room, legally they must be an adult. No exceptions. (Please see job descriptions for Volunteer Staff on the following pages.) Be sure to include the Pastor Reference Form and the Institutional Reference Form when you submit your application. (Incomplete applications will not be processed.) Further instructions will be emailed after the Staff Application is received to complete the registration process. Your Camp Coordinator will give you a Medical Form to be completed and returned to them before coming to camp. Before the May 1st deadline, you may transfer $25 of the $50 fee to another staff member, if needed. NO TRANSFERS FOR STAFF FEES AFTER MAY 1ST. Staff Registration Fee Per Camp

STAFF REGISTRATION FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. NO EXCEPTIONS. SELECTION There are several factors in the selection process. Applicants are encouraged to apply for all areas they are willing to serve. Each applicant is evaluated and notification of your assigned job will be made through your Camp Coordinator’s email before coming to camp. (Email notification of your assigned position usually takes place 2 - 3 weeks before coming to camp.) REMUNERATION There is no salary provided for staff. O KA G.O RG/K I D S C A M P | 3


VOLUNTEER STAFF POSITIONS Go to okag.org/kidscamp before you arrive to camp for information and ideas to help you be better prepared.

COACHES Coaches lead a room of campers during their week of camp and are responsible for the oversight of those campers. Coaches will stay in the dorm with the campers, but will have a private restroom and sleeping area. Coaches need to be up-beat and fun, but also must be able to take charge and keep order. Coaches will accompany campers to all activities and will have daily devotions and prayer with their campers. This will be an opportunity to be a role model, as well as impact lives for Christ. The ministry that will take place will also bless the Coach! Coaches must focus on insuring that each child has the best camping experience possible. ALL COACHES MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE.

SUPPORT STAFF Support Staff assists with all activities that lend to the facilitation of the camp ministry. Support Staff do not share overnight quarters with campers, but they do have opportunity to interact with campers during daytime activities and services. Support Staff must have a servant’s heart. The Support Staff will serve in three areas of ministry: Recreation, Concessions, and Kitchen. SPECIFIC ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE MADE ON THE FIRST DAY OF CAMP. Support Staff must focus on insuring that each child has the best camping experience possible. All SUPPORT STAFF MUST BE AT LEAST 17 YEARS OF AGE. RECREATION ASSISTANT Support Staff serving as Recreation Assistant need to be up-beat and fun, but also must be able to take charge and keep order. They need to be able to explain the rules of a game or activity and enforce them with consistency and fairness. Recreation Assistants must be able to take instruction from the Recreation Director and follow through until the task is complete. All Recreation Assistants will work in the concession stand after the evening service. (See Concessions Support job description.) Working as a Recreation Assistant can be very rewarding. You will interact with campers as you facilitate the fun! CONCESSIONS SUPPORT Support Staff serving as Concessions Support need to be up-beat and fun, but also must be able to take instruction from the Concessions Director and follow through until the task is complete. Support Staff serving at the window must be able to count money and make change. Support Staff serving in the merchandise or food prep area must have good listening skills and be able to work with speed and accuracy. This is a very fun job at camp. During the day time, you will get to interact with campers as you serve them at the window. After the evening service, the lines will be long, so speed is necessary - but that is just when the fun begins! It can get a little crazy at times, but it is an experience you will never forget! KITCHEN PATROL Support Staff serving as Kitchen Patrol (K.P.) need to be up-beat and fun, but also be able to take instruction from the K.P. Director and follow through until the task is complete. K.P. Support Staff will do many jobs centered around the cafeteria, such as serving food or drinks, monitoring the lines, cleaning, or helping a child with a spilled tray. You will get to interact with campers at every meal, as well as work in air-conditioning! All K.P. Support Staff will work in the concession stand after the evening service. (See Concessions Support job description.) Working in the Cafeteria can be a “cool” place to minister - even if it is 100 degrees outside!
