    (Other than your spouse if applicable.)

    *Life at Camp involves things such as swimming, wall climbing, canoeing, stressful situations which naturally occur while living with others in a cabin, and having to eat the food that is provided. In some cases, like the canoe trips, you might be several hours away from medical attention. Do you have any physical, dietary or medical limitations that we need to be aware of?

    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.
