We desire that Camp Arnes have a distinctly Christian atmosphere and influence. With our year round rental’s, we serve a variety of church groups, schools and family groups. In our summer programming, campers come from many religious backgrounds and are all included in Wigwam services, grace before meals, Bible Ex, etc. Forge Apprentices participate in hosting these groups and leading campers in these Christian initiatives. To this end staff are expected to live exemplary Christian lives before campers, groups and staff alike. In applying to be a part of the Forge Program, you subscribe to high moral, ethical and spiritual goals, and give assurance that you will try to lead your campers to practice real faith for themselves. To help us better understand your feelings about our Christian approach to camping, please answer the following question in your own terms.
*1. Please write your personal testimony and include all of the following subjects:
- the circumstances of your personal conversion to Christ & your personal, daily relationship with God
- why you want to work in a Christian camp & how you feel your talents and skills could be useful here
- your involvement in ministry (include information about your church and other groups you fellowship/minister with)
*2. List 3 personal strengths or attributes that would benefit your desired position.
*3. How do you approach conflict? Give an example of conflict you have experienced with someone that you feel was resolved well, as well as an example of one that you feel ended poorly.
