We've started assembling our staff for summer 2016. If you've always wanted to be a camp counselor but didn't know where to start, this post is for you
(Oh, and you'll also make some decent money, too!)
What are the job requirements?
Now make no mistake, we don't hire just anyone. There's some specific criteria you need to meet in order to be considered to join our team.
For one thing, we prefer all camp staff be at at least 19 years old and to have completed at least one year of college. (From time-to-time we may make an exception for 18-year old applicants who we believe uniquely stand out from the crowd, would be fantastic models for our campers, and a natural fit for our camp.)
In addition, we give priority to applicants who are available to work all 10 weeks of camp from June 13 to August 22. If you can't work all 10 weeks, we still may be able to work together, but generally, it's always in the best interest of everyone (especially the campers) when staff can work everyday all summer.
We also prefer applicants who are strong swimmers and have prior experience working with kids.
Now even if you meet all of the above criteria, the information outlined above is only the tip of the iceberg. There are other traits we're looking for in potential camp counselors and additional conditions you'll need to meet.
All of the information you need is online on the summer jobs section of our website, including a job application form. Good luck!
