If yes, please explain:
We desire that Camp Arnes have a distinctly Christian atmosphere and influence. Though campers come from many religious backgrounds, all are included in Wigwam services, grace before meals, Bible Ex, etc. All staff members participate in leading campers in these Christian initiatives and, in addition, staff are expected to live exemplary Christian lives before campers and staff alike. In applying for a staff position, 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 questions 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 three 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.
I understand that being a Camp Arnes staff member means serving and cooperating with the Camp directors and other staff members as unto the Lord Jesus Christ. I commit to supporting Camp policies (ie. regulations regarding meetings, in-cabin times, regular working hours, code of conduct and behaviours), sacrificing personal desires, and sharing the reality of Jesus Christ in my life with campers, their families, staff members and visitors of Camp Arnes. Camp Arnes expects all staff members to be in arrangement with their Statement of Faith, Code of Conduct and to attend all necessary training sessions. Camp Arnes maintains the right to dismiss those who do not satisfactorily comply with policies and procedures.
