Camp Skylemar, long considered to be one of the finest camps in the country, is in search of staff who want to make a positive difference in the world, one child at a time. At Skylemar you’ll have the opportunity to teach, coach and mentor kids this summer. Positions run from June 9 - August 10, 2019. These dates include a 1-2 weeks of staff orientation and training.
- Sports: lacrosse, basketball, baseball, tennis, golf, hockey, archery, football, soccer & volleyball.
- Arts, Music & Sciences: photography, theatre arts, culinary arts, science, woodshop, art, video production, crafts, piano, graphic design & guitar.
- Water Sports: swimming, canoeing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing, water-skiing, wake-boarding, wake-surfing, water-polo & fishing.
- Outdoor Adventure: ropes course, climbing, hiking, camping & outdoor skills.
A Skylemar counselor lives with a group of 5-8 boys and another counselor. In addition to providing instructional leadership in one or more activities throughout the day, a counselor serves as “big brother”, friend, role model, advisor and “hero”.
A summer-long in-service training program follows a carefully planned pre-camp orientation. Staff meetings are conducted regularly.
While most staff members are specialists in one or more activities, all staff members are chosen on the basis of our understanding that they enjoy a wholesome, sincere interest in working with young people. Applicants must have completed at least one year of college.
We are obviously very cautious about the type of person to whom we entrust the campers. Counselor applicants must provide five objective references for us to contact, such as teachers, coaches, professors, guidance counselors and those who have observed the applicant working with children.View Job Description
