Staff Qualities


Being a counselor at a summer camp is unlike any job you have had, or any job you will ever have. Being “on-duty ” 24/7, and a role model for campers aged 8 – 16 is the hardest job you will ever have. Can you put the needs of the campers and camp ahead of your needs? You will be responsible for the health and safety of the campers in your charge. You will be responsible to make sure they wake up on time, dress appropriately for the weather, eat properly, drink water, put on sunscreen, behave appropriately in a cabin setting, make great friends, attending the correct activities…. And so much more! Can you perform at your best and smile while you are both physically and emotionally exhausted? Oh, you will also be teaching a specialty, a variety of different electives, dressing up for the evening activity and of course making sure each camper is having fun and feels that you are there for them. And your name was pulled out of the hat and everyone in camp is throwing water balloons at you all day. Can you still keep up your positive energy at that point? If you truthfully answered, "YES!" keep reading! We are looking for positive people from around the world to help us create the best summer experience possible for our campers. This will mean a job experience like no other, so keep the following in mind.
