Crossings is a non-residential camp. We work primarily with church youth groups. Youth Pastors and group leaders bring and chaperone their students while at camp. Staff live in housing provided by Crossings.
The day begins at 7:30 AM with breakfast and ends at 11:00 PM at camp curfew. Staff have responsibilities ranging from leading small group discussion, lifeguarding, setting up activities, facilitating activities, and spending time with students in the evening after worship. Every day of camp is full of activities and responsibilities.
The majority of Crossings Program Staffers are required to get Lifeguard, CPR, and First Aid Certified through the American Red Cross and YMCA. No exceptions. There are some jobs such as administration, videography, food, and facilities that are not required to be lifeguard certified. You do not have to be lifeguard certified to work at Truth in Public.
Truth in Public is a camp designed to engage older high school students on two crucial levels: thinking critically about a Christian’s role in the public square from a Christian worldview and understanding how legislature works in the state of Kentucky. We hope this camp will call students to step up, lead, and help change the world for Christ Jesus. We will spend one day at the capitol running mock senate and house sessions.
Staff will be helping run camp, staying in dorms with the students, and leading discussion groups/bible studies at the end of each day. It will be helpful if staff have a working knowledge of the basics of legislature and current political issues and Christian political engagement.
