Summer Camp Counselor- All Departments
Company: Camp Horizons
Posted on: March 10, 2019
The majority of our staff are counselors. Counselors live in cabins, teach activities, and help lead camp-wide programs. Counselors serve ---in loco parentis--- (in place of parents) while at camp. In cabins, this means you make sure your campers take showers, brush their teeth, keep their belongings together, clean up after themselves, and get along with cabin mates. During activities, this means you teach them new skills, help them improve current skills, teach them to be good team players, and ensure that they stay safe. You must make sure your campers are eating enough food, drinking enough water, and getting enough sleep to stay healthy at camp. Counselors are hired for their experience, enjoyment of, and teaching abilities in one of the following areas: Aquatics: Swim lessons, water polo, water aerobics, water games, and more. All aquatics staff must be certified lifeguards and are responsible for overseeing all aquatics programs and activities at the camp's pool and lake. Visual Arts: Arts and crafts, photography, nature art, stage makeup, clay work, sketching and painting. Performing Arts: Guitar lessons, dance, drama, improv and singing and vocals. Equestrian: English riding lessons, trail rides, horse care, and stable upkeep. Outdoors: Mountain biking, high ropes challenge courses, outdoor living skills, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, rock climbing, caving, tubing, canoeing, outdoor survival skills and archery, and more. Science & Technology: Movie making, Horizons radio, rocketry, wacky lab, Horizons farm, cooking, and more. Sports: Basketball, volleyball, soccer, tennis, team sports, ultimate Frisbee, yoga and more. Counselors should have experience working with children and expertise in the specific activities that we offer. Training is provided. Many of our counselors return to camp year-after-year.
