If you think you have a dynamic and outgoing personality, a passion for impacting the lives of kids and a very important sense of humor, then maybe you are the type of hero we’re looking for to join our staff!
We have several levels of camp leadership positions:
Counselors in Training (CITs)
This is an unpaid position but an essential starting point for those young leaders looking to develop their leadership skills in a work environment where they will receive timely and constructive feedback. CITs are treated like an employee as they observe and develop key leadership characteristics in working with kids. A CIT must be 14 years old by May of the year they want to begin work.
Junior Counselors (JCs)
Typically these are matriculating CITs and usually 15 or 16 years old. This is a paid position and therefore all JCs will need working papers. As an employee, JCs are an integral part of the camper leadership along with the groups lead counselor. Like all employees, we do expect JCs to attend all 8 weeks of camp.
Associate Counselors (ACs)
Typically these are matriculating JCs and usually 16 or 17 years old. This is a paid position. As an employee, ACs are essential especially when Counselors are out sick. Like all employees, we do expect ACs to attend all 8 weeks of camp. This is a paid position.
Counselors are most often 17 years or older. Counselors are the primary group leader and therefore must exude good decision making, maturity and demonstrate continual high energy and enthusiasm. Not only do they lead the campers but also serve as valuable mentors to those younger leaders who may work with them. To be a counselor requires high energy as it is expected that all counselors be fully engaged and active in all camper related activities. Summer salary commensurate with experience.
Activity Leaders (AL)
These are most often career teachers or those in college who may be close to graduating. We prefer candidates who are elementary or secondary education majors or Physical Education majors. However, if you feel you are a great fit for our camp, we encourage you to apply. Summer salary commensurate with experience.
