Best Summer Opportunity Ever!
Counselors spend the week in a cabin/tent with five or six campers. They are responsible for leading cabin/tent time and facilitating the curriculum-focused conversations that take place during that time. Their job is multi-faceted and requires spunk, a sense of humor, patience, and an endlessly compassionate heart for hurting children. They will be responsible for appropriately intervening with campers that are repeatedly unable to follow directions or have put themselves or other campers in danger.
This is a big job, but also a rewarding one. Many counselors have experienced their own forms of trauma and trials in life. However, even without having personally experienced trauma or having a background in trauma-informed care, everyone has something to offer a camper. It is all about your desire to help kids who need hope and healing.
If you are between the ages of 18 and 24 and eager to be a part of this life-changing experience for children who are exposed to domestic violence, please apply here:
