Our Staff 

Understanding that our campers' summer experience is directly linked to their interaction with our staff, we hire engaging, fun and responsible young adults who exhibit a joyful love of Christ and desire to be positive role models in your children's lives.

 Mr. Chris Ricketts is the Director of Summer At Sacred Heart. Mr. Ricketts spent 8 years as a member of the U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, performing nationally and abroad. He moved to Winchester with his family in 2008 and became a member of Sacred Heart of Jesus. Mr. Ricketts brings a unique blend of military experience, retail management, teaching, and working in various ministries in the Catholic Church to the Summer at Sacred Heart program. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Theology from Catholic Distance University. He is very excited to be a part of this exciting new adventure at Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Applications for staffing are available online.  Our staff must be passionate about God, faith, and Summer At Sacred Heart.  They must view their positions at SASH as a gift and service, and an opportunity to form community and grow in their own faith.

Each Summer At Sacred Heart staff member is subjected to a detailed hiring process, which includes a personal interview, fingerprinting, and background check.  Staff members will attend orientation and training, coupled with ongoing staff development throughout the summer.  

Our staff members will experience daily faith formation which offer the opportunity for development into lifelong, Christ-centered friendships.
