Doe River Gorge Ministries has a unique summer RR opportunity to offer. We are a Christian camp offering outdoor adventure programs located in the mountains of northeast Tennessee, named for our location where the Doe River flows through a deep gorge. The property includes a very scenic section of the historic East Tennessee & Western North Carolina narrow gauge that established the route through the gorge in the 1880s, which we have restored and operate. During the summer, the RR is used to transport campers to and from several activities in the gorge and on weekends, scenic rides are offered to the public and to parents dropping off their campers.

Each summer we recruit young men and women as counselors and activity staff and this year we are looking for 2-3 additional staff to assist with the RR. Age 18+ preferred, but will consider rising 12th grade, age 17.

The position will be focused on track and ROW maintenance, but there will also be regular opportunity to assist with operations. Certain days/times will also assist with general camp operations and logistics.

It should be stressed that we are looking for young people of faith, who are interested first in ministry and spiritual growth and in railroads second. Each year, the summer staff becomes a tight-knit community, growing in their faith, and you will be housed and otherwise live in this community. Dates are somewhat negotiable, but preferred to start May 21 and can run thru July 31. Room and board provided plus $300/week and $800 bonus at the end of the summer.
