Though contact with campers is limited, a significant way to impact them is through serving them. This is done by maintaining the facility of Campus by the Sea in a wide variety of areas. The hard work and long hours required in these areas is rewarded by long-lasting friendships with the other crew you live and labor with as well as the satisfaction of knowing you've made a warm and friendly place for campers to grow.
Meals are made from scratch, including bread which is baked several times daily. The kitchen crew works hard to meet the three most important deadlines in camp: breakfast, lunch and dinner! We need people who enjoy working hard and can work closely together in a cozy kitchen with others. The kitchen crew is also responsible to maintain the cleanliness of the kitchen and food storage areas. Our kitchen crew is important to us, and someone who works well with others is truly a blessing.
