The 48 acre camp is on the road system and offers easily accessible isolation for group or family events. This position involves working throughout the compound, maintaining facilities which are rented out to the public throughout the summer.
ERUMC facilities include a lodge with commercial kitchen and seating for 120, two large cabins with kitchens and sleeping areas for 20 each, five heated cabins sleeping 8 people each, and five unheated summer cabins sleeping 8 each. There’s a heated washhouse with laundry, and covered fire-rings. The camp can accommodate up to 120 people to eat and sleep in a beautiful rustic setting.
Within a five mile radius of the camp the topography goes from glacial ice to the tide flats and salt water of Lynn Canal making it an excellent location for outdoor camping, education and environmental studies. Marked trails lead through lowland forests to high alpine, providing an idyllic setting adventure. Adjacent to the camp are the facilities of Eagle Beach State Park, and excellent trails to both Herbert and Eagle Glaciers.
