Cabin Counselor

Cabin counselors are responsible for the social and emotional experience of their group of campers. Cabin counselors will live and sleep in the dorms, spend cabin time with the campers, supervise camper living habits, and guide the campers in their selection of activities. At mealtimes, counselors will sit at each table with 5-10 children. Counselors are involved in those activities where their teaching skills can be best utilized. On occasion, though, counselors may be asked to “assist” in activities in which they are not particularly experienced. However, they are not expected to be the Lead, but they assist and help with supervision.
