JOIN THE SQUAD
Like a traditional Camp Counselor- but so.much.better! Guides are truly the backbone of Camp. It's a dual role of some traditional "Camp Counselor" stuff and Activity Leading. Our staff share that they love this because it allows them to be creative and take ownership over a part of camp.
Guides are assigned a group of campers to guide and support each session, with a Co-Guide. This group is your community- your group to create traditions with, to cheer with, to help form connections, etc.
Additionally, during each activity period of the day, groups break up into elective activities. Guides will either be assigned an elective class to lead (chosen in advance, based on your interest/skill), or assigned a class to support (not lead the class, just help supervise campers).
Regular Guide Hours are 8:15am-3:15pm (with some additional hours for staff meetings). Optional additional hours for Extended Day program.
Starting pay is $14.25-$15.00/hour (depending on education and experience)
