Summer Staff 2021

STAFF DASHBOARD
When you applied for summer staff, you completed your online forms using http://staff.camphorizon.org  Unless you have not completed your staff essays, you should not need to login to the staff dashboard again for this year.

CAMPER DASHBOARD
You should be enrolled as "staff"  for each session that you committed to serve.  The 2021 Summer Staff session is an administrative session for reporting purposes.  If you are in high school, you may also be registered as a camper for Varsity.

The link to the Camper Dashboard is marked "Camper Login" on the camp website or use http://register.camphorizon.org  Registering you as a "camper" allows for several good things to happen.  Please login and complete the camper profile and the three medical options: Allergies, Prescription (Pres Meds) Meds, and Over the Counter (OTC) Meds.  If you are scheduled for a week that you did not expect to serve, or not scheduled for a week that you expected to serve - PLEASE CONTACT US!

  • You can see which weeks you are expected to serve at camp.
  • You can use the one-way messaging to invite friends and family to send you messages.
  • You or your family can add funds to your spending account.
  • You can make purchases (shirts, photos, flash drives).
  • We can schedule you for activities that you will teach.
  • This permits you to be included in a variety of camper reports.
    • For this reason, we need you to complete the Camper Profile.
  • This permits staff to be included in nursing medication reports.
    • Enter your prescription meds on the FIRST week that you will serve.
    • We will copy them to subsequent weeks.
    • High School staff, make sure your parents approve any over-the-counter meds

BUNNY CAMPERS
We have added the children of adult staff into either a camp program or as bunny campers if younger than camper age.  Please make sure your children are registered for something the week that you expect to serve.  In general, we ask that you pay the registration fee ($30), spending, and tubing (if desired) for your camper-age campers.

VARSITY CAMP
if you serve at least three weeks, and are 15-17, we will waive your camper fees (except spending and tubing fees).

STAFF WHAT TO BRING

SUMMER STAFF ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE

SATURDAY ARRIVALS 
Most staff are expected to arrive on Saturday so  that you can move in, get settled, and enjoy an evening of fellowship with your fellow servants.  Incoming directors, speakers, and nurses may find that their rooms are not ready until after lunch.  The previous week's team may be required to greet parents of departing campeers and packing away program items before they can move out of their rooms.  Please be patient.

SUNDAY ARRIVALS
Some staff members may want to go home on Saturday, or otherewise arrive on Sunday.  We ask that you arrive in time for the Lord's Supper at 9:00 am.

There are some staff members that must travel on Sunday for various reasons, arriving during registration time.  Please make sure that the camp team is aware of when you plan to arrive, especially if you are a counselor.

SATURDAY DEPARTURE
The week is not over until the campers are gone, program items (props, etc) have been packed up and stored, and everything is clean and ready for the incoming campers (Sunday Registration).  That is usually about lunch time.  

OVERNIGHT HOUSING - SATURDAY
You are welcome to stay as long as you wish on Saturday, but you may have to change your housing for the night. ONLY STAFF MAY STAY OVERNIGHT.  If you stay, expect to have a job.

WHAT ABOUT MASKS?
The page CAMPER HEALTH has the latest information on camper and staff health guidelines.  Other than registration day, pickup day, and certain times in food service, masks are recommended at times, but not required.  

WHAT ABOUT CELL PHONES?
Please be advised that there was some concern about abuse by younger staff members that do not have the maturity to handly the responsibility of keeping their phones.  READ THE POLICY (Section Two)

WHAT ABOUT STAFF NIGHT OUT?
We plan to take the high-school staff out for shopping, but  we want to avoid exposure to the community as much as possible.  We are asking the adults and collegians to be selective about where they go on Saturday night.
