GENERAL COUNSELOR

As a general counselor, you will work with a specific group of children for the entire summer. It is your responsibility to provide a physically and emotionally safe environment for campers to grow and learn. You’ll have a lot of opportunity to bond with campers, and participate with them in a broad range of athletics, crafts and cultural activities.  Group counselors remain with the campers in their groups for the entire day, become famililar with the personal requirements of each camper (i.e., allergies, swim level), know their campers’ personality traits and any pertinent information provided by their parents, assist at lunch, and act as role models for their campers by demonstrating the highest levels of excellence and morality.

Counselors supervise a group of children.  They are required to run, play, swim and care for children.  Our counselors are dynamic, enthusiastic and upbeat.

SPECIALTY COUNSELOR

As a specialty counselor, you will remain in one area, while different groups of campers visit your activity. You will have a chance to work with many different campers and staff members. If you have a passion for a specific craft, sport or other activity, this may be the position for you.  Specialty counselors help design the activities for the program, put together supply lists for items that need to be ordered, create lesson plans with objectives and goals, and help guide the campers to meet their goals and expectations by providing direct, hands-on instruction in their respective areas.

Specialty counselors are expected to have a passion, talent and ability to teach a specific skill or activity to a group of campers.  Specialty counselors are expected to be responsible and mature leaders.

Lifeguards must be LGT certified (we can help you sign up for a course).  Lifeguards must posess the required skills to pass the lifeguarding course, as well as be positive role models and effective teachers of children.
