COUNSELOR JOB DESCRIPTION:
The role of a STRONGER BRAVER camp counselor is to act as a leader, role model, and a moral compass to guide our camp attendees. We are looking for people who have a strong desire to invest in our campers and really get to know them. We want our counselors to provide healthy support and positive supervision. Our goal is to provide campers with a fun and rewarding experience while learning how to deal with life's difficulties.
All counselors will need to participate in all camp programs and events which will include sleeping in the dorms and eating meals with the campers. There will be opportunities to lead games and participate in fun activities. Overall as a counselor you will be living with campers 24-hours a day and supervising dorms at night time.
COUNSELOR DRESS CODE:
Counselors will be given staff shirts on staff training day. We encourage you to wear the camp shirt throughout the week of camp. Other appropriate clothes will be outdoor wear that is modest and comfortable. Sneakers are a must for camp activities! Be sure to bring extra clothes in case they get dirty during camp. We will provide a recommended packing list in your final approval packet.
COUNSELOR TIME COMMITMENT:
Our goal is to build strong bonds between camper and counselor. The most successful way to do this is to have counselors be committed to a full week camp session. For this reason, we are not able to have counselors attend only partial days in one camp session.
With that said, we ask that each camp counselor commits to the full camp sessions which include overnight. The Friday before camp begins there will be a counselor training. The camp will begin Friday afternoon and counselors are required to stay for the duration of camp till Sunday afternoon after our staff debriefs.
Exception: Hired medical professionals will be scheduled during agreed upon times for session support.
