What does a Chief do?

Regardless of positions, all CRS staff are required to be at least 16 years of age, to have a commitment to follow Jesus Christ wholeheartedly, to place the needs and safety of campers first and foremost at all times, and to be flexible and expect to be called on to do things above and beyond what is listed in his or her job description. Check the details for specific job requirements and ages.


Staff Expectations

CRS staff members are role models to our campers, and because of this, we have a set of guidelines and rules that staff must follow. We do this because what we as staff do in moderation, the campers will do in excess. We want to be wholesome, godly leaders for these campers.


Safety

At CRS, we take the campers’ safety as top priority. As a result, all staff will abide by camp rules regarding curfew, automobiles and prohibition of alcohol, tobacco products or any dangerous drugs. Staff are trained according to strict guidelines by the American Camping Association as well as Ministry Safe Abuse Awareness program.


Appearance

To avoid conflict between parents and CRS staff, we have decided to take the conservative approach to dress, behavior and appearance. All staff is expected to adhere to our policies with a cheerful heart.
