Join our Camp Ministry Team!
Play Maker Day Camp is returning for our second summer of faith, fun, and fellowship and we are looking for counselors! Do you enjoy working with children, being active, and sharing your faith? Then we want to hear from you!
How is Play Maker Day Camp unique?
Play Maker Day Camp is a ministry of Aldersgate United Methodist Church. Our goal is to provide an excellent camp experience in a Christian environment. Counselors will provide a nurturing enviroment and facilitate camp activities, plan games, organize crafts, and lead daily devotionals for campers.
Who are ideal counselors?
We are looking for counselors who are 1.) committed to the Christian mission of our summer day camp, 2.) are passionate about working with children, and 3.) will work to ensure a safe and fun environment for our campers. Counselors must be 16 years of age. Previous childcare or camp experience is preferable, though not required. All necessary training will be provided prior to the start of summer.
Counselors must pass a SLED background check and complete trainings in Safe Sanctuary, Child Abuse Prevention, Basic First Aid, CPR, and counselor leadership trainings. All staff hires must attend a staff training retreat May 20th through 22nd.
What are standard counselor shifts?
We are hiring for both part-time and full-time staff positions.

All camp staff are required to abide by the church’s Leadership Covenant. This covenant indicates a shared committment to behaviors that reflect the gospel.
