Volunteer Staff Positions
Winter Camp 2024 Staff Applications Open Early September
All Orthodox Christians in good standing who have the blessing of their parish priest and who will be 18 on or before September 1st are welcome to apply!
How to Apply
To apply for a volunteer staff position at CSME, you must be at least 18 years of age and an Orthodox Christian in good standing with the blessing of your parish priest. In addition to work history and volunteer history, CSME requires three references - one personal, one professional (teacher/coach acceptable), and a reference from your parish priest.
Applicants selected for further review will be contacted for a phone interview.
Staff training is held on the Saturday and Sunday prior to camp and attendance is mandatory. You are responsible for transportation to/from staff training and camp. If you need assistance with carpooling or fuel funds, please let us know as soon as possible.
NO campers may attend staff training or be onsite without prior approval from Camp Director and only in the event of special circumstances as determined at the Director's discretion.
We encourage you to read the staff handbook prior to applying for a position as a camp counselor or as support staff.
Our Staff Handbook details the rules, regulations, requirements, and general expectations for all volunteers and will give you a good idea of what you can expect as staff which is vastly different than any experience you may have had as a camper.
Please note - background checks will be required for all adults 18+.
