counselor has two roles at Campus Kids: both bunk counselor and activity instructor. As a bunk counselor, you work with one or two
co-counselors, living with your camp "family" of 8-12 boys or girls, providing support, guidance and supervision in the bunk, at meals and
during all-camp activities while also maintaining the highest safety standards. Each camper's bunk counselors help him/her choose activities
each day for the next day. As an activity instructor, you lead activities during the activity periods (with at least one other counselor),
including teaching of activity skills and maintaining safety. Your activity assignments are based on the activities suited to your talents
and interests (sports, fine arts, aquatics, performing arts, nature, etc.). Counselors have significant responsibility at Campus Kids. There
are no assistant or junior counselors. As a counselor you receive excellent support from both your division leader and activity coordinator,
as well as the camp director and assistant directors.
Division leaders, called head counselors at our camp, support and
supervise staff in their roles as bunk counselors. Each division leader
works with one age division (3-5 bunk groups). They provide overall
leadership for the division, creating "division spirit" as well as
supervising daily logistics and insuring safety. They constantly check
that the individual needs of every child are being met. They communicate
with campers' parents as needed. As a team, division leaders help plan
and coordinate evening programs and other all-camp activities. There are
6 division leaders at our camp, three for boys and three for girls.
Head counselors often lead one bunk division and also serve as a
co-activity coordinator for one activity area.
Activity coordinators support and supervise the staff in their roles as activity counselors and help insure safety and instructional continuity
for campers. There is an activity coordinator for each of the following areas: aquatics (W.S.I. required), athletics, fine arts, performing
arts. Strong knowledge of the particular activities is required as well as knowing how to teach these activities in a supportive, non-competitive
environment, and being able to support and facilitate counselors in their roles as activity leaders.
Activity coordinators often co-lead one activity area as well as serving
as a head counselor for one bunk division.
The assistant directors work closely with the division leaders and activity coordinators to insure the smooth safe, daily operation of the
camp and to be sure that the individual needs of every camper are met.
