The Highlander dining hall is the heart of our camp family. Three meals a day, we gather together to enjoy great food with great friends. Food service is more than food at HIghlander. It is one way that we live out our mission to love our campers and staff through a sweet reminder of home.
Our Kitchen Manager intentionally seeks to love their staff, our campers and counselors by planning and serving healthy and delicious meals, just like mom would make. Our manager works alongside the camp directors to successfully and efficiently run our kitchen, maintaining the highest standards of sanitation and food quality. They are responsible for managing the kitchen staff and creating their schedule each week, maintaining and organizing food inventory, coaching and directing kitchen staff each day, as well as supporting food preparation at each meal.
Experience feeding groups of 300+ is preferred. Knowledge of dietary restrictions and accommodations is needed. ServSafe certification is required.
Our kitchen staff work hard, prepare delicious meals and join in the fun each and every day at camp! The kitchen prepares and serves three amazing meals a day. With exceptional attention to dietary needs and allergies, our kitchen is known for its exceptional service and quality. Kitchen staff rotate their kitchen duties, including food prep, washing dishes, cooking, and cleaning. The kitchen staff put a smile on our campers face with their positive attitude and loving attention to each member of the Highlander family. We hire kitchen staff each year who have a serving spirit, team mentality and commitment to excellence!
Our volunteer camp moms are one of the greatest blessings we have at camp. These wonderful women help with the day-to-day needs of camp life, working hard to serve and love each and every camper and staff member in our community with a smile and a servant’s heart. From sorting mail, answering phones, supporting the office, doing cabin inspection, opening the camp library, serving snacks and hosting birthday parties, the camp moms are essential to making a camp day happen! We LOVE our camp moms!
The Camp Nurses are the key to keeping the Highlander family happy and healthy! Our Health Hut Staff are dedicated to managing the health and well-being of each and every Highlander camper and staff member. From dispensing daily medication to offering a band-aid or a hug to a camper in need, Highlander nurses provide the extra dose of TLC while our campers are away from home.
All applicants must have a minimum license of RN with the state of NC and a love for children. Daily responsibilities include maintaining accurate records, administering medication, communication with parents, and monitoring the health and well being of both campers and staff.
Ready, Smile! Each summer we hire professional photographers to capture the magic of camp and provide a window into our world for parents at home! Camp photos are cherished by campers, offer comfort to parents and document the love of Highlander for years to come. Volunteers work during the session that their children are enrolled. Candidates must have professional photography experience with a love for children and the great outdoors!
