Summer Camp Jr. Instructor/Counselor Application
2020 sure has been something else. Covid-19 has changed so much for everyone and it's certainly going to have an effect on camp this year. Our leadership will have some changes on how we operate, and these roles are more important than ever.
Depending on our camp size, we may have a few less Junior Counselors, but more Junior Instructors. Junior Instructors have all the same perks, but they are not responsible for a group. We also have limited cabin size so there will be up to two junior counselors per cabin, but with our tent setup we will have need for junior counselors in the boys and girls groups in our tent village.
Your mission hasn't changed though. As with every year, we want to make sure that every camper is safe and having fun the entire time they're there. We appreciate your application and we look forward to considering you for our leadership team this year.

Guidelines For Jr. Counselors And Instructors
You are expected to be at every scheduled activity during camp on time. Counselors must ensure their campers are there on time as well.
Ensure all campers are following safety procedures.
If a camper is going anywhere, especially during activities, somebody must know where they are going and somebody must be taking them there.
Be positive and always make sure the campers are having a good time without conflicting with the other rules.
You must attend the Jr. Counselor/Instructor meeting Sunday at 1:00pm.
You must stay until all of your campers are checked out on the final day and help clean their cabin areas and your own.
ONLY campers 18+ may have electronic devices. Focus needs to be on campers, not snapchat.
Guidelines Just For Jr. Counselors
Before taking your campers anywhere, you must count out all of your campers and THEN be dismissed by your head counselor.
If your camper needs to see a nurse, you must notify your head counselor. Depending on the situation, they will either contact the nurse to come or instruct you to take the camper to the nurse while they watch your campers.
If Guidelines Are Broken
We have a very simple rule for breaking our guidelines. You will get one warning and after that, if any of these guidelines are broken, then you will be replaced. While we want you to have a great time at camp, the most important rule as a camp leader is that the campers come first. We have some terrific things planned for those that follow our guidelines including extra downtime, night time games, special evening classes, and more just for Jr. Counselors and Instructors!
