Experienced professionals are selected to be Area/Program Heads and are an integral part of Key Staff or Leadership at camp. We offer competitive salaries and benefits to attract the top talent.
Area/Program Heads have a high level of expertise in their area including experience supervising, teaching, and coaching children ages 7-15 as well as staff. They are self-starters, flexible, organized and creative. Areas of responsibility include:
General counselors are invaluable staff members who spend their whole day with one group of campers. They are role models who assist and motivate campers whether they are trying to learn a new skill or they have concerns about an issue or idea. Throughout the day general counselors monitor and participate in the group's activities and do everything in their power to make each of their campers' summer the most memorable yet. General counselors must be fun-loving, patient and genuinely concerned for the welfare and development of young people.
Most counselors are a both General and Specialty counselors who live in a cabin of 6-12 campers and teach/coach in their activity area of expertise. Both in the cabin and in their program areas specialists are responsible for creating communities that are fun as well as emotionally and physically safe. Cabin life consists of supervising a camper bunk (six to twelve boys or girls) in conjunction with one or two other co-counselors on a daily basis, particularly during morning cleanup/inspection after breakfast, three meals, rest hour, evening activity, and evening preparation for bed.
Specialists are also experts in their areas; they have experience playing or participating in their activity at a competitive level. Many have experience teaching and coaching in their areas prior to coming to camp, though this is not always a requirement.
Specialists plan, supervise, and instruct in their area. Depending on the activity area, specialists may instruct with other specialists or independently.
