Work at the Procter Center

The mission of Procter is to embody and teach creation care, spiritual growth, and hospitality, becoming beloved community together.

Procter seeks to provide a safe, inviting, and spacious rural setting that cultivates spiritual formation, models sustainable living and celebrates God’s love and reconciliation through hospitality, prayer, study, work, and play.

Procter is a camp and retreat center in Madison County, about 30 miles south of Columbus, Ohio. Our site includes a reflection pond, lake, pool, hiking trails, and a woodland area. In the summers, we host hundreds of campers in grades first through twelfth. In addition, Procter Center Farm provides food for our Dining Hall and sells produce at farmer’s markets throughout the Columbus area.

Each summer, we hire Kitchen & Housekeeping, Farmers, Groundskeepers, Camp Counselors, Lifeguards, and Camp Nurses. All of our staff serves as leaders and mentors to our campers, guests, and customers. Being a part of our staff means working hard, having fun and making meaning.

Procter is a ministry of Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio, and as such seeks to follow Jesus and his way of love in all we do, which includes welcoming all.  People from all or no faith backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Procter is a great place to get away from everyday life. I stayed in one of the cabins where there are 4 rooms with 2 sets of bunk beds. The cabin also had A/C, showers, a bathroom, a kitchen, and a living room area furnished with a couch.  The cabins are a short walk away from the dining and conference hall or the lake. 

The staff was very welcoming and I even had the opportunity to visit with some of the summer farm staff! It was great talking to Procter’s farm manager, Danielle, who told me that the farm uses sustainable practices: pasture-raised pork and chicken, free-range egg layers, and crops are grown using organic methods. She was happy to sell me some bratwurst and my roommate and I enjoyed them that night!

In between my work sessions, I had a wonderful time wandering around Procter’s pond and visiting with the pigs and chickens.
