Camp Staff Incentives

Camp staff members who complete an application prior to the March 31 deadline will have the opportunity to showcase our RMFU camp program to area schools and make some extra money!

During the months of April and May you can visit schools and showcase the RMFU camp program to classrooms and assemblies. You will receive $30 per school visit and mileage. You will work with the Education Director to set the school visits.

For each new camper you recruit you will receive $5. Prior to your school visits you will receive registration packets to hand out which will be printed with your name so that if a child does attend, you will receive the credit automatically.

Each staff member should set a goal, such as 5 new campers from each school. If you were to visit 2 schools @ 5 campers each/10 campers total = $50 additional in your paycheck!

Please ask for more details on how to do this!
