Counselors are the soul of camp. They set the tone for how great a campers experience will be by facilitating friendships and adventures in an enthusiastic, compassionate manner. Counselors will be assigned 1-4 campers, depending on their individual needs, and will be by their campers’ sides, guiding them throughout their day and utilizing strategies to promote positive behaviors and choices. They will offer support during activities, mealtimes, and transitions. Counselors will assist campers, to whatever varying degree necessary, with the daily aspects of personal care (showering, changing, toileting, eating, dressing, transferring, etc.). Counselors get to be a camper’s best friend as they navigate making new friends, developing life skills, and trying new things.
