Complete job descriptions may be read here.


Must be at least 18 and one year out of high school

Each 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.

Positions for male and female counselors are available for 2018.

Division Leaders

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.

One position for a male division leader is available for 2018.

Activity Coordinators

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.

One activity coordinator position is available for 2018.
