Crew Program

CREW PROGRAM

The Camp Ernst Crew Program is a leadership experience for those entering the 10th grade. REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

The program, housed in the Yurt Village, is designed to help participants gain leadership skills through trainings and experiential service learning.  Crew participants form a tight knit group as they work together to complete a variety of tasks and activities every day.  Crew members will leave the Crew program with a desire to serve others as well as having grown in Spirit, Mind, Body and friendship.

CREW FORMATION WEEKS

The initial crew session will be known as “Crew Formation Week.”  During this time, crew members will be assigned to a small group where they build community, learn new skills, and practice leadership through service in kitchen and bathroom rotations, as well as taking time to do camp activities throughout the day.

CREW EXPERIENCE WEEKS

Once a crew member has participated in a Crew Formation week, they will be eligible for optional additional weeks.  With similar duties to the formation week, this “Crew Experience Week”  will allow crew members to also participate in youth builders projects, have access to additional leadership opportunities, and participate in new crew traditions.

WRANGLER CREW

The Wrangler Crew program is a leadership experience for those interested in our Ranch program.  Participants will spend time learning how to teach and lead barn programs and will get a chance to put into action what they have learned.  Riding lessons and group training, along with trail riding, barn chores like cleaning stalls, grooming horses, and feeding the goatswill also be included.  Wrangler crew members will be at the barn during much of the day and with other crew members in the evening
