Camp Cabin Counselor

Our Camp Cabin Counselors are at the heart of the camp's success and are essential to each camper's overall satisfaction. Being a Cabin Counselor is one of the most rewarding jobs you will ever have. As a Cabin Counselor, you live with, supervise and mentor the children in your cabin while also attending a variety of learning workshops. Campers spend the majority of time with their cabin-mates and counselors and develop close relationships during each camp session. Each cabin consists of two counselors, a junior counselor and five campers.

Camp Resource Specialist

We rely on our Camp Resource Specialists to bring the expertise of their craft to the children during 1.5 hour workshops. These structured workshops are expected to introduce campers to a new activity, captivate their attention, and teach them a creative or useful skill. Some examples include: art, poetry, martial arts, archery, yoga, drama, nature class. While technically Resource Specialists spend less time with the children, they are also responsible for morning and night supervision, the coordination of various evening activities and fostering an overall environment of community and love.
