Staff Opportunities

Summer Staff

The energy and enthusiasm summer staff bring to each summer camping season has only been highlighted in this ongoing coronavirus pandemic. While the “what” camp offers continues (i.e. grow in relationship with God & God’s people), the “how” we offer it requires creative and unique solutions. And who better to bring those creative and unique solutions than the folks who have been navigating and finding fun and meaningful ways to connect with those around them.

American Camping Association offers the following information about how a summer camp experience well contributes and facilitates future  vocational goals:

So if you or someone you know are willing to bring and develop their gifts and talents, please visit the Summer Staff Opportunities page.

NEW! Year Round Operations/Facilities Director

Just as a new model was created last summer to respond to the coronavirus challenges with summer staff, a new model has also been created for year round staff with the goal of sustainability in recognizing the increasing responsibilities and regulations required for a successful camp future.

The newly created Operations/Facilities Director position is intended to offer continuity for critical camp functions along with care and facilitation of camp personnel (i.e. volunteers, part-time staff, or seasonal summer staff) to serve the campers and guests of the Rocky Mountain ministry. Part of the job is an operations role including coordination of guest group services and program support. The other part of the job is in joining the significant care of buildings and grounds.

Corbin, Mary and Tom continue to serve the RMMC ministry and look forward to how this position will enhance the camp team. Applicants are invited to send a cover letter and resume to the director, Corbin Graber ([email protected]) by March 1st. A copy of the Job description is available upon request.

Mens Retreat

Mens Retreat, Mar. 4-6, 2022 is scheduled to return in 2022. We are delighted to have John Sharp join us again (after cancellation last year) and we look forward to hearing what he has to share with us. In addition to the weekend retreat, participants are invited to arrive for the Friday Men’s Retreat workday between breakfast and supper to help accomplish needed camp projects. Breakfast, lunch and supper are offered to everyone who comes. Please visit the Men’s Retreat web page for additional information and our current coronavirus precautions for gathering safely.

luthier and camp volunteer featured in Colorado Springs Paper

Matt Zimbelman has truly made lemonade out of lemons with respect to the Spruce beetle infestation over the past years here at Rocky Mountain. The mature Engelmann Spruce trees which were infested by the beetle (resulting in the trees demise), now offer excellent wood for the instruments he makes. Matt has joined in the Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS) response to cutting the trees while also selecting the ones that will become material for instrument building including the two mature trees next to the Speicher shop facility.

A Colorado Springs luthier builds reputation quickly

The response to the “Paying the Legacy Forward” campaign in 2020 and 2021 has been nothing short of inspiring. While the coronavirus pandemic uncertainties continue, the financial support received builds a sustainable foundation for the immediate future. Thanks for your ongoing support in this time of ongoing challenges in offering a safe and healthy space here at Rocky Mountain to all who come!

Did you know

Sky-Hi-View is getting a shower

The suggestions and ideas for a shower at Sky-Hi-View over the years is about to be fulfilled. The addition of pressurized water vs. gravity flow from the water tank just outside the cabin a few years ago helped pave the way. How will it fit? Just barely. The doors from both bedrooms will now open out into the bedrooms instead of into the bathroom allowing for additional space. This improvement is intended to be a win-win for guest comfort and cabin appeal which directly supports camp operations. With volunteer and contractor and permits coordination, we’re looking to have it ready to go by spring.
