CIT APPLICATION

Seeking Qualified Staff

Staff members must be qualified young adults ages 18 and older.

The Hye Camp staff is an integral part of the quality, integrity, and success of the program. They are expected to serve as mentors and Christian role models, and as such, not only have a positive and lasting impact on campers, but also bear a tremendous responsibility. Accordingly, we are seeking fun-loving, dedicated, and faithful individuals who welcome the opportunity to spend the summer mentoring young Armenian Christians and strengthening their own faith in the process. We also provide a modest stipend in appreciation of their efforts.

All staff application materials must be received by JUNE 1; therefore, please act quickly if you are interested in this opportunity. We will review all applications and confirm if you have been accepted by JULY 1. In the meantime, we encourage you to begin completing all of the required forms.

You will need to complete the following forms: Medical Packet, Clergy Recommendation Form, Voluntary Disclosure Statement, and W-9 Form.

If you are accepted as a staff member, you must arrive at camp early for participation in mandatory training and pre-camp preparations on Wednesday, July 24 – Saturday, July 27. This training session is for all CITs and Staff. If you have any questions about the application process, contact the Camp Administrator, Jennifer Morris,  at (248) 648-0702, or via email at jenniferm@armeniandiocese.org.

STAFF APPLICATION

Volunteers

Our team of volunteers is an integral part of the quality, integrity and success of the St. Vartan Camp program. Volunteers serve as mentors and Christian role models, and as such, not only have a positive and lasting impact on campers but also bear a tremendous responsibility. Accordingly, we are seeking fun-loving, dedicated, and faithful individuals who welcome the opportunity to spend the week, or even the summer, mentoring young Armenian Christians and strengthening their own faith in the process.

As dedicated members of your parish community, we are sure you know of young adults that would make excellent staff members. We hope that you will help us in spreading the word and recruiting this year. In addition, if you know of other adult volunteers that would benefit our program, then please pass this information on to them and ask them to contact us. The areas that we are most in need of adult volunteers are: camp nurses, classroom volunteers, nighttime security, lifeguards, Armenian Language instructors, and Religion instructors.

If you are interested in applying to be a volunteer, please contact Camp Administrator, Jennifer Morris, at (248) 648-0702, or via email at jenniferm@armeniandiocese.org to request a Volunteer Application form. Please postmark all of your application materials, including the clergy recommendation form that your pastor submits to us, by JULY 1. As you know, our space is limited but our need for your support is great. We will let you know of your acceptance based on the needs of the camp program and of the session for which you apply by July 1.
