Summer employment at a sleepaway camp is enjoyable, engaging, and rewarding. You have the option to share a bunk with other campers on our lovely campus in the Pennsylvania Endless Mountains. Throughout our six activity periods, you will work with campers. However, you will spend a lot more time with the kids than that. You’ll be with them from the time they get up until they go to bed. Mealtimes. Rest Period. Shower Time Activity Intervals You get the opportunity to speak with our incredible campers throughout the day. And just as fortunate as they are to have you as a part of our outstanding staff, you are privileged to be with them.
Even if you spend a lot of time with your campers, all it takes is one moment to make a child’s life completely different. Each of us may recall a single interaction with an adult from our formative years that continues to have an impact on us today. What is the weirdest thing about this “moment”? The youngster and you won’t be aware that it’s happening. You might say something that doesn’t seem important to either of you. Then, days later, you’ve long since forgotten about it while the child is still reflecting on it. Years from now, based on a single chat, you’ve altered that child’s course, and as they desperately look for your phone number to say “Thank You,” you might not even remember that camper.
We just ask that you arrive at sleepaway camp as you – fun, engaging, athletic, eccentric, nerdy, reserved, extroverted, or any combination thereof. We have experienced everything and value it equally. We don’t anticipate that as a staff member, your summer will be full with unforgettable experiences. In actuality, seeking for these opportunities would be fruitless. You may develop trusting relationships with your campers by just being yourself. Therefore, stop looking for this “moment.” Celebrate your uniqueness and savor the time you have with these wonderful kids this summer because they will affect you just as much as you can expect them to.
