What would my typical day look like at Big Creek?
Each day is a little different! All staff members have different responsibilities, so we'll describe an "average day".
7 am - Breakfast! (you will be assigned to help with one breakfast per week!)
8 am - Worship! (some of our staff help with music and tech)
9 am - 4 pm: We go serve. As a staff member, you will be given the task of leading a group of volunteers in our community. Your team would focus on one of these three areas: Community (nursing homes, food giveaways, clothing giveaways), Construction (porches, roofs, and other projects), and Children (daycamps, VBS, and other kids programs).
4:30 pm - you'll have one day per week helping with a dinner. Otherwise, you can take a nap!
5:30 pm - Dinner (don't worry, our food is actually really good since we have to eat it too!
7:40 pm - Worship again!
Interspersed through the week, our staff have other little jobs they are assigned to "manage." Example, you may supervise a team of guests who run the store, clean bathrooms, or do the dishes. You won't have to do this every day, but just supervise the guests!
What are some specific "skills" we are seeking with staff?
Worship team members - Tech (sound, lights) - Lifeguards - Athletes to lead sports camps -
- Those with children's ministry or construction experience!
What are the time requirements and pay?
Our summer staff will arrive on around May 20 (give or take a couple of days) and leave approximately August 8th.
Camps run from Sunday – Saturday morning. The week is very busy. however, Saturday evening and Sunday morning are a bit more relaxing while volunteers are gone!
