Positions at Camp

Group Counselors

Each group of campers is led by 2 – 4 Group Counselors who fill the role as mentor, coach, older sibling and teacher. Much of campers’ summer success lies with the relationship they develop with their group counselor. Counselors spend the day working with their campers and participating in all activities with them. We look for applicants who have patience, compassion, great listening and communication skills, spirit and the ability to relate to children.
