Summer Staff -- Camp Chickagami, Presque Isle, MI (Diocese of Eastern Michigan)

Camp Chickagami is a special and joyful place, where lives are changed and where you can make a difference that can be carried out into the world. We are a ministry center in the Diocese of Eastern Michigan, with camps for children, youth and families. We are part of the Episcopal church, and believe all people are loved by God no matter who they are or what their life is like.

Christian Formation is an important part of our program; we share stories, learn together, say prayers and sing every day. Campers and staff members of all (or no) faith backgrounds are welcome. We also canoe, fish, have campfires, sleep outside, create art, do chalk murals, play sports and wacky games, and explore the natural world around us. Serving on a camp staff is a formation experience in itself; while care and safety for campers is always a staff member’s first priority, personal, faithful and professional growth results from serving and living in community.

We are intentional about hiring a camp staff that is reflective of the campers we serve. Counselors from any or no faith backgrounds, all socio economic statuses, people of color and members of the LGBT community are especially encouraged to apply.

Staff members have a deep impact in the lives of campers. At Camp Chickagami, the expectation is that each summer employee serves as a model of sacramental ministry, fulfilling an example of loving and servant leadership to the campers and to one another. Every position on the Summer Staff must be approached as a ministry to the campers (rising 1st-11th graders), one that requires constant energy, enthusiasm, integrity, patience, and perseverance. We welcome young adults who are seeking to live into their own potential in this way.

If you are interested in applying, please continue reading all the materials here. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at directors@campchickagami.org.
