All counselors must hold current certification in CPR and First Aid.
Check with the Red Cross and get certified in CPR and First Aid if you desire to be a camp counselor.
Current special certifications such as Red Cross Lifeguard, experience in Riding Instructions, etc. and previous experience as a counselor is desirable.
Counselors will attend Pre-Camp Training from Wednesday, June 7, 2023 (arrive 2 – 3 PM) until Saturday, June 10 2023.
Pre-camp training is extremely important because it gives counselors a chance to become oriented to the camp, learn more about policies and procedures, prepare to lead activities, and get to know each other and learn to work together as a team.
The 2023 camp season will run for 6 weeks. Our Senior Counselors are required to work the entire season; However, we may occasionally be able to work with a Junior Counselor or a CIT (Counselor in Training) who has a schedule conflict. But we require them to work a minimum of one of our 3 week sessions.
Camper sessions begin Sunday, June 11, 2023 and end Saturday, July 29, 2023 with a 1 week break from July 2 - July 8, 2023.
Occasionally there may be sessions with reduced camper enrollment and staff may be asked to take one or more weeks off based on the camp’s needs. But this happens very seldom.
Training: June 7 - 10 (Mandatory)
Session 1: June 11 - June 17 Session 2: June 18 - June 24 Session 3: June 25 - July 1
Session 4: July 9 - July 15
Session 5: July 16 - 22
Session 6: July 23 - 29
The job of counselor is very intensive and requires much physical stamina and emotional maturity, so please understand the schedule and requirements beforehand.
