Activity Specialist - Climbing and Ropes Counselors
Mountain Biking, Nature, Ropes Course, Climbing
Activity Counselors have a dual role at camp. You work in tandem as a cabin counselor and in a specific program area. Activity Counselors and campers in their cabin follow a similar morning routine (i.e. wake-up, breakfast, clean-up). At the end of clean-up, campers go to their first period and counselors report to their specific program area. As an Activity Counselor, you spend the morning in your program area coaching and teaching campers, boys and girls, ages 7-15, who are assigned to the program area. You will meet back with your cabin of campers at meal times and for special events and evening activities. Our Activity Counselors are skilled in a specific area and have the ability to teach, coach and develop campers’ skills in that area. Some areas such as waterfront and adventure have certification requirements such as WSI, LGT, and CPR. Your excitement and ability to have fun and be creative will be critical components to making the program a success. The excitement and energy of our counselors lays the foundation for a popular and successful camp program. Each program area is overseen by a Department Head and Program Area Director who lends their expertise in managing the program, curriculum and staff. Activity Counselors get the "best of both worlds"; they spend the activity day in their program area, getting to know children from all different age groups and teaching an activity for which they have passion, and; they have a group of campers to call their own and to spend time with outside of activities.
