2019 was the kick-off year for an ECCC staff exchange program. Funded by a grant from the Episcopal Church’s Office of Formation, this program aims to:
Cultivate a new generation of Episcopal camping and retreat ministry leaders
Strengthen programs around the network with fresh ideas and energy
Broaden our programs’ hiring pools
Pursue ways of diversifying our camps’ staffs
Lovingly support young adult staff moving “out of the nest.”
Pay summer staff a fair wage
Make Episcopal camping leadership a visible, productive, and rewarding ministry path.
In this session, we’ll discuss the process, successes, and challenges of the program, and introduce an ECCC-wide Staff Exchange Program.
