Have questions regarding our application process? Check our frequently asked questions for the answer. If you cannot find what you are looking for, email us!
A: Staff Orientation begins Sunday, June 4th and the last day of camp is August 12th, 2017.
A: Anytime you'd like! Staff hiring begins during December and continues through May. January or early February is ideal.
A: You should try to have at least FOUR references for a staff application.
A: Give us a complete view of yourself. Church officials, teachers/professors, employers, Geneva Glen alumni, etc. We also ask that you include one family member who can comment on your ability to work as an employee!
A: I'm willing to bet you have 4 references somewhere. We realize that this might be your first official job, but you've probably had some "employment" elsewhere. Babysitting? How about mowing the neighbor's lawn? Have you taken care of someone's pets, etc? Use teachers or school officials. Are you in any clubs or activities? Have your soccer or baseball coach on that list.
A: If you use a Geneva Glen alum, please get his/her current information for us. That'll give you a chance to check with that person and let them know you plan on using him/her as a reference. Incomplete applications will take longer to process.
A: After you apply you should receive a confirmation email, postcard or phone call stating that we have receieved your application.
A: Sure! Go ahead and mail it in, we'll take a look and attach it to your application.
A: Email us at applications@genevaglen.org. You are also welcome to call us at 303-697-4621 x 14. We are usually in the office from 9-5, Monday - Friday.
A: Selected applicants and re-applicants eligible for a position will receive an interview. We usually begin interviews in January and February.
A: Depends on when you sent in your application. If you are selected for an interview, you should hear from us within a month of receiving your application. We appreciate your patience and you are always welcome to contact us about the status of your application.
A: Interviews are either done in-person at camp or over the phone. We'll ask you some questions, you answer them. How formal do they get? Don't wear a tuxedo or your prom dress... Seriously though, we appreciate an open interview where you are professional and willing to share some information about yourself.
A: If you haven't heard from us at all (confirmation email / postcard), give us a call or email and make sure that we do have your application. If you did get that email, just be patient - we'll get in touch with you as soon as possible.
A: Staff hiring (including work and dish crew) is ongoing until the summer. Most people will know by early April, but you can be hired up until the day of camp.
A: If you have an important question regarding the timing of being hired, give us a call let us deal with that specifically. If you are just excited and a little impatient, we'll try and get to everyone as quickly as possible.
A: The formation of the summer staff is more art than science. While we do spend some time early on taking a look at the supervisory staff, area heads and crews; we typically don't have an "order."
A: We don't have a set number, but usually between 15 and 20.
A: In your end of summer evaluations we asked if you were interested in the next summer... we use that information to "invite" people to join the staff. If you were employed in a previous summer (more than a year ago) contact us or fill out the standard online application.
A: Once you are offered a position, we'll get all your paperwork in order and send you an invitation to our online hiring paperwork system. Don't worry if you don't see one right away though.
A: Mid-May in Staff Newsletter 2.
A: Nope, just relax - you're set. The staff will receive the first newsletter in April. Information will keep coming throughout May and early June.
A: If you want more information about pre-camp work, contact camp. Pre-camp is for veteran staff only.
A: Yes, we need 2 new references from ALL re-applicants. We would like to hear from a reference who knows you since the end of last summer. It's Geneva Glen's responsibility to get up-to-date information on you before we consider re-hiring you. Remember that an "invitation" to complete the re-application does not ensure that you have a job!
