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, called head counselors at our camp, support and
supervise staff in their roles as bunk counselors. Each division leader

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.

co-activity coordinator for one activity area.
