As a CS you eat, sleep and play with the same kids throughout the entire summer. Every camper’s summer revolves around the relationship developed with you, at the cabin level. Cabin Specialists are college aged men and women who are dedicated to being positive, and patient, role models for our campers, and who love being with kids! Each CS is intentionally placed with one specific age group that we feel will compliment your current skill set. As a CS, you’ll have full involvement in daily activities and program, trips and camper outings.
This is a first-rate, hands-on experience for those majoring in Education, Early Childhood, Psychology, and Human Development, but is certainly NOT limited to these majors.
Activity skills (i.e. soccer, swimming, etc...) are a real plus, and experiences with day or resident camp children, as well as playground/school groups is also helpful. This is a job that will simply have you full time with kids of one particular age; the good times, the rewarding times, the absolutely unbelievable times and the occasionally difficult times. The CS position is very hard work, but incredibly rewarding and fun!
