Summer Jobs

Thank you for your interest in Summer Employment at Triple R.  Please read the following information, so you can better understand who we are and what to expect from a Summer of service with us.


The Triple-R Ranch is a non-profit Christian camp. The word of God, it's instruction and application, is the cornerstone of our philosophy while a total integration of Christian truth and principles throughout the sum of camp life is the frame work upon which we wish to build. we seek out high school and college aged people to serve on our summer staff who are motivated to be a part of a ministry that affects every camper body, soul, and spirit.

The total program of the Triple-R is derived from the distinctive ideas that a Christian camp should:


  • Be different from the types of activities and experiences a child may have at home, school, church and in his community.
  • Create and outdoor experience that will bring the camper into contact with the beauty and design of God's creation
  • Teach new skills and appreciation both in the physical and practical as well as in the vital are of human relations. 
  • Bring each camper into a saving relationship with God through instruction in His Holy word and introduction to His son, Jesus Christ. 
  • Provide wholesome fun and enjoyment through an exciting, well planned program that reflects the joy of the Christian life. 
  • Create opportunities for self discovery, personal growth, and leadership training through camping and work experiences.

The direct ministry to the campers is carried on primarily through these counselors. They live with campers, teaching them activity classes and sharing experiences, all of which are designed to develop relationships which will give credibility to the Bible classes which they teach. Counselors must have completed one year of college. Counselors minister in two-person teams in a cabin setting to campers ages 8 -13.

    At Triple-R there are various ministries and some are more obvious than others. What is not obvious and therefore often forgotten, is that we are all equal in God's eyes. We must realize that our work is done as unto the Lord. No matter how we are ministering, whether through cleaning, bailing, saddling, programming, or teaching our attitude and motives are the key. Our best in any positions is what the Lord desires.
    Triple-R will call you for a phone interview as soon as we receive at least two of your three reference forms and your completed application. With both your interest and ours in mind, we make decisions on each application as soon as possible.
    Each summer staff member will be asked to submit a current Doctor's physical and insurance form (forms provided by RRR). In the event of a medical emergency or illness which is not job related, the staff member or his/ her family will be responsible for paying all expenses. Job related accidents are covered by workman's compensation. Time off for summer staff is from Friday evening at 7:30pm until Sunday at 3:00pm.

All summer staff are expected to be here for the entire time they are hired unless special permission is granted in writing by the Triple-R prior to the beginning of camp. Dates of employment include the week of Pre-Camp orientation and Training, a very important part of our program. It is desirable that applications can commit for the entire summer.
