Youth counselors are one of the most important roles at camp. Counselors act in teams of 2-3 as mentors, teachers and guides for their group of campers. Campers are in grades 1st through 8th. Counselors are 9-12 grade (students who will be going into 9th grade in the Fall of 2018)
This year the camp theme is the “Council of Willow Pond.” This year at All in the Circle Creative Arts & Nature Camp we will dive into the imaginative world of The Council of Willow Pond with its resident beaver family and the web of animals, plants, insects and trees who live together in cooperation. Whether taking on the role of a tree climbing animal, a winged one or trying on the garments of the clouds, campers will try on walking in another’s shoes, paws or hooves to the experience the gift of empathy and to learn from others.
And that is where you come in! Youth counselors are mentors for the campers, ones who help them see the bigger picture, to empathize with other’s perspectives, to find words to share their own feelings and connect to others. To apply click here.
Youth Counselor Overnight Retreat
We will be gathering June 14th-15th for an overnight Youth Leadership Retreat. The retreat will set up counselors as a team to take on your role as counselors, mentors and teachers as you lead your groups through the camp. This will be a ton of fun at a luxury horse farm.
Camp is June 18-22 and June 25th-29th. The camp day runs from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. You will be the counselor for one group with one or two other counselors. Campers will be grouped based on their age (1st-8th grade). Each day we will have a debrief counselor meeting at 2:00 (with plenty of snacks!) when we share our successes and strategize solutions for effectively working with campers.
Counselors will receive a weekly stipend of $150 for your service! And all hours count as service hours- accompanied with a letter of reference. Rising 9th grade through high school and beyond are eligible to be youth counselors. To apply click here.
