CABIN COUNSELOR/ACTIVITIES INSTRUCTOR 

RISING COLLEGE SOPHOMORE


Being a Cabin Counselor is a very important responsibility. For the most part, you and your co-counselor are assuming the role of “mom” for approximately 8-12 girls and are basically “on call” for them 24 hours/day! You will be assigned to a cabin in one of three areas: Hillside (ages 5-8), Lakeside (ages 9-11) or Hilltop (ages 12-16). Depending on the age of your campers, a typical day of cabin life might include assisting with general needs for the younger set (i.e. wake-up, meals, hygiene, letters home and rest hour) or planning a tribal competition strategy and the closing banquet details with the older girls. You will also teach one or more general or special skills with other members of our camp staff. As you can see below, we have quite a variety of activities for campers to pick from to customize their daily camp schedules.
