We look for great spirit, enthusiasm, loads of energy, and caring people who are always smiling and who enjoy the outdoors, swimming in the sea, playing with kids, camping and just having good clean fun. Counselors need to be up for the challenge, as they work long hours and go for long periods without drinking alcohol and smoking, similar to an au pair. If they are up for the challenge, it is such a worthwhile and rewarding opportunity.
Counselors need to be flexible, willing to try new things, helpful, patient, responsible, and need to be able to take constructive criticism. It is also imperative that they are English speaking and confident swimmers, as many of our activities are based in and around water.
The role of a counselor is solely for the children, to be there for them, to spend time with them, stay in cabins with them, to listen to them, and to become their friend and someone they trust. Counselors are responsible for a group of children that they live with for the duration of the camp. They teach a large variety of activities on both the land and at the beach and they run evening programs at night.
Every counselor here at camp has a funny nickname which adds to the magic and mystery of camp life. Camp names allow you to be anything and anyone at camp; Tinkerbell the brave, Squishy the brainiac, Grenade the hero, Punch the crazy or Mango the clown – let your imagination go wild!
