Activities Director:

This position would be filled by a mature adult with strong leadership and communication abilities. The Activities Director will work directly with the Camp Director to lead all games throughout camp, oversee the staffing and flow of the daily activity time, and assist in many other areas during camp. 

Counselor:

Counselors are 14 and older that are paired up with 1-2 campers for the entire camp! As a camper’s counselor, you get to build a friendship, have fun with them, help them make good choices, and participate in all the activities together. Counselors and campers are placed in cabin groups, so counselors are able to help each other out and build camaraderie as a cabin group. You will sleep in the same cabin as your camper and be responsible for them (with help) the duration of camp. 

Lifeguard:

One of the most loved activities every summer is swimming! We can only do this with amazing (and certified) lifeguards to help keep us safe. Lifeguards are needed the 16th (afternoon only), 17th, and 18th. Commitment for lifeguards can vary between only coming for one shift to staying the entire time. Swimming takes place for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon every day. This is always our hardest position to fill but so important!

Support Crew:

The Support Crew is for college aged and older. Everyone that makes up the Support Crew helps where needed. This could include helping with activities, serving snacks, relieving counselors during their break, helping with behavior problems, and more. Having reliable people available and ready for any task helps camp run more smoothly!

Dishwasher:

Our amazing cook needs some help in the kitchen! The main task would be to make sure all dishes are cleaned after every meal by loading and unloading the dishwasher. Other tasks might include meal prep, keeping the kitchen tidy, and other various tasks. 

Photographer/Videographer:

We need someone to document all the fun we’re having at camp! Prior experience  and using a professional camera preferred, as these pictures will be used  all year long for social media, donor emails, website, etc. Not required, but being able to take videos throughout camp and make a professional looking video at the end is needed also. This position would be apart of Support Crew and might have various other tasks given while not taking pictures and videoing.
