More information about our available positions:

 

Counselor: A summer counselor is a young adult who has finished at least one year of college, and will work directly with youth during the months of June and July. They will attend a week of staff training prior to the start of our summer camp program. This training will include training on camp procedures, safe sanctuary policies, and camp programming as well as CPR/AED First Aid and Lifeguard Training. These counselors will be the staff who serve in the cabins with our campers, offering themselves as leaders of activities, worship, play, devotions, and mentoring.

 

Junior Counselor: Students who have finished their senior year in high school are welcome to apply to be a Junior Counselor.  Junior counselors serve camp during the summer between completing high school and beginning college and receive half the pay full counselors receive throughout the summer. All junior counselors will need to submit an application for work and fill out recommendations. Junior counselors exercise leadership both in the cabins alongside full counselors and in total group activities, as well as with specialized programming, such as high ropes. Junior counselors will attend training with their fellow staff before the start of summer camp and will receive training in camp procedures, safe sanctuary policies, and camp programming as well as CPR/AED First Aid and Lifeguard Training. Junior counselors must have previously served as a CIT at Cedar Crest; high school grads who have not served as a CIT will enter into the CIT position their first summer working at Cedar Crest.

 

Counselor in Training: Students who have finished their junior year in high school are welcome to apply to be a CIT.  Though a volunteer position, this staff role is one that affords a willing high school student the opportunity to serve Cedar Crest by being an active staff member with the campers while learning from the counselors.  This is a great way to “build” up to being a summer counselor, and a perfect role for those long time campers that want to do more at Cedar Crest!  All CITs will need to submit an application for work and fill out recommendations. CITs work directly with youth alongside their fellow staff and counselors in all day-to-day programming and summer camp activities. CITs will attend training with their fellow staff before the start of summer camp and will receive training in camp procedures, safe sanctuary policies, and camp programming as well as CPR/AED First Aid and Lifeguard Training.

 

Summer Program Staff:

 

Summer Office Manager: The summer office manager will serve as the leader of the camp office and help to organize registration, cabin assignments, and administration underneath the Camp Director.  This person should have at least two summers of camp experience (or equitable work/service) in order to apply.  Students or graduates who are 21 and over should apply.

 

Summer Nurse: The summer nurse will serve as the healthcare leader of summer camp at Cedar Crest. Ideally, the candidate would be an RN, though those who are certified as First Responders or Wilderness First Responders may apply.

 

For 2017, we are hiring:
7 female counselors
6 male counselors
Multiple CITs
