Please review the staff manual before training. We will review the whole manual at training, but it will be helpful in sessions to have a background of the information so we can discuss!

New staff, the first few sections A-D, will be of most interest to you. There is valuable information about the Cherith culture and the way we do things. Becoming familiar with these sections will help your transition to camp.

There are also specific sections that you will want to take a more in depth look at depending on your position. Some sections are more relevant for counselors (sections E, F), and others for activity specialists (section F).

It is mandatory for ALL staff to read sections G, H, and I.

If you are a returning staff member, please glance through each section but do a careful reading of the risk management, relationships, and health sections and any others that apply to your position. 

Counselors, in your preparation of Bible Ex, Cabin Devos and Campfire Messages, the Spiritual Helps section (E) will be very helpful to you.

You will receive a hard copy of the manual when you arrive at camp... Please don't print your own!

We're excited for another summer of fun, growth, love, friendship, and most importantly... Jesus!
