Staff Recruiting Season is here!

The calendar says January, and there’s definitely snow, but summer is never far away at Amnicon. We’re already gearing up, and the next phase in our summer preparations is Staff Recruiting!

For the next several weeks, Amnicon’s directors are hitting the road to identify and call forward the spectacular individuals who will become the Amnicon Summer Staff of 2017. We’ll be toting our recruiting display from our backyard in the Twin Ports, to the Twin Cities, St. Peter, Northfield, Fargo, Decorah, and anywhere else we think we’ll find the caring and gritty leaders our campers look forward to each year.

Camp Amnicon has a reputation for hiring and training extremely versatile staff members who are equally enthusiastic and prepared whether they’re leading Bible study, running a rapid river, having a deep conversation with a camper, or steering a giant canoe on the biggest Lake in the world. This year we’re hiring Guides to lead programming and wilderness trips, and in-base Support Staff to provide spectacular north-woods hospitality for everyone who comes down Camp Amnicon Road.

Here’s our recruiting schedule!

Jan 31: U of M Morris

Feb 1 & Feb 2: Concordia College in Moorhead

Feb 6: Augustana University

Feb 7: Waldorf College

Feb 8: Wartburg College

Feb 9 & Feb 10: Luther College in Decorah

* Other recruiting events may be added as opportunities arise.

If you see that we’re in your neighborhood, let us know! We’d love to meet up for coffee or have you stop by the Amnicon booth and help us tell Amnicon’s story, a story that gets people excited about being part of Amnicon’s ministry.

Are you interested in a summer of outdoor ministry on the shores of Lake Superior? Contact Associate Director Brad Damon at brad.damon@amnicon.org, or apply now!

Do you know someone who really should be on the Amnicon Summer Staff? Send them our way! They can apply online, or contact Brad with any questions.

You can help in so many ways! Pray for our search, recommend us to talented and caring people, or come see us while we’re traveling. The more the merrier!

See you on the trail!

That’s all for now!
