The Resident Conference Assistant (RCA) program plays a vital role in ensuring the success of the University’s summer conference and camp schedule. An RCA is a current Anderson University student and hired through the conferencing office for summer employment, and is involved in every aspect of the conference and camp program, from general preparation for a visiting group to planning specific group needs with individual conference directors or coaches, and on-site management.
The RCA assigned to a specific group will be the primary contact person for any arrangements that need to be made for a camp or conference once the summer has begun. Prior to the completion of the academic year, all correspondence can be done through the conference office.
