Engagement & Recruitment Specialist/Imago Dei Village Summer Site Director,
Crossways Camping Ministries, Appleton, WI (Full-time)

The primary employment responsibility of the Crossways Engagement & Recruitment Specialist/ IDV Summer Site Director is two-fold.  The initial focus from September – May is to engage camp prospects to meaningfully participate in the Crossways mission & ministry by registering for a camp program, working as seasonal staff and/or renting facilities at one of our three camps: Waypost (Hatley, WI), Imago Dei Village (Clintonville, WI) and Pine Lake Camp (Waupaca, WI).   The engagement specialist will engage and recruit prospects by representing Crossways as an exhibitor/vendor at conferences, conventions, job fairs, synod and community events.  This position will coordinate & direct the Crossways Ambassador and Camp Champs programs. Through these programs Crossways volunteers, staff and stakeholders engage in outreach and marketing to interested congregations, organizations and potential partners.  (In our collaborative leadership structure, camp ambassadors, board members, and other Crossways staff also share these engagement duties)

The primary focus during the summer season from May – August would shift to serving as the Imago Dei Village Summer Site Director.  The IDV Summer Site Director works with other summer site directors to train, supervise and mentor summer staff; implement youth/adult/family programs, and coordinate summer camp services (e.g., canoe trips).   

This full-time permanent position will have future opportunities for advanced collaborative leadership roles within the larger Crossways Camping Ministries organization.  This is a hybrid work model of remote, travel and on-site work.  The full position description can be found at:
