Summer Camp is a Magical Place to Work!
GSNENY is accepting applications for summer 2014 Camp Directors. Please review the application packet carefully, and if you have any questions, contact Kim Akins (email@example.com). Applications are due by November 29, 2013.
If you are a college student majoring in education, outdoor leadership or adventure, or if you are a professional in those fields, please consider being a part of a wonderful summer experience! Make a difference in the life of a girl and become a summer camp counselor. You will help girls ages 5 – 17 to develop their full potential while they learn to work with and respect others, make decisions, and contribute to the camp community. We have a variety of unique opportunities for girls and counselors alike to experience friendship, fun, and exciting outdoor adventures.
Camp Staff members are trained in the following areas: child development, communication, conflict resolution, risk management and safety, leadership, and program development. We focus on the Girl Scout Leadership Development Model and incorporate that into training.
We are looking specifically for staff members who are already trained in Red Cross CPR/RTE, Lifeguard, Boating Safety, and Water Safety Instruction. We will provide some of that training on a limited basis if necessary. We are always interested in specialists with experience in backpacking/hiking, boating (canoe, kayak, sail), ropes courses, horse-riding, fine arts, and leadership development.
