Support Staff and Seasonal Workers

Servant-hearted support staffers, i.e. Cooks, Housekeepers, Groundskeepers, Summer Staffers, etc..., serve at the encampment throughout the year.  Year-round staff are mostly from the local town of Palacios while the Summer Staff is a broad spectrum of high school and college-age youth from area high schools and colleges across the state.  TBE accepts applications and resumes year-round.  For summer applicants, it is always best to apply early as the bulk of summer staffers are hired by January or February prior to each summer.  If you are interested in working at camp, please email Rob, rob@texasbaptistencampment, to get started.
