Summer Camp Staff
At Mo-Ranch Summer Camp, we work hard to create a memorable camp experience. Our secret weapons in achieving this are our counselors! They are the ones who live out our goal daily by implementing our exceptionally well-run programs, providing contagious fun and meeting campers wherever they are at spiritually and socially. Our summer staff is selected carefully and intentionally. Many are former campers and returning counselors. All of our counselors are Christian role models for campers who have completed at least one year of college.
Counselors go through a rigorous background check, receive specific training in child behavior management, age level expectations, safety and emergency procedures and child abuse prevention. They are all First Aid and CPR certified, with most also being lifeguard certified.
Before campers even get to camp, counselors spend staff training bonding, learning and getting to know Mo-Ranch Summer Camp. We spend time learning the Bible Study curriculum, engaging in open discussions, and getting to the heart of why we are here.
Summer Camp Staff Employment
Being a counselor is one of the hardest jobs out there, but it is also one of the most rewarding!
We are looking for young adults who after long hours of kayaking, fort-building, swimming and engaging with campers, will stand up on stage and sing their hearts out to “Because I came to Mo-Ranch.”
We are looking for a time commitment of late May to late July, with some positions running through mid-August. Staff training is required for all staff, and occurs in late May.
We are looking for mature people who have a high sense of morality, and strong integrity. You will be in charge of campers who are looking up to you; we want leaders that are great role models.
Your role is not only to facilitate activities, but to form relationships and make every camper feel loved and respected. We are looking for young adults who are comfortable and confident in being servants.

Director of Mo-Ranch Summer Camp
Shasha is a former Mo-Ranch Summer Camper and grew up visiting Mo-Ranch with her family and church. She has always had a passion for working with children, camp and the great outdoors. Shasha is originally from Abilene, Texas and attended Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, graduating with a degree in Environmental Science.
Following college, she found her way back to Mo-Ranch as an Environmental Leadership Program Field Instructor for three seasons before heading to Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area in Kentucky, and then on to Birmingham, Alabama. In Birmingham, she worked as the Programs Director, coordinating programming with local schools and overseeing summer day camps for the past eight years.
Camp has always been her calling and Shasha is thrilled to be in Texas once again. She is especially thrilled to be back to stay where her heart has been since she was a kid: back at Mo-Ranch. Camp is the greatest place on earth to her because it’s a place where campers get to try new things, challenge themselves and just be themselves!
