Want to live at the beach, influence kids, and have a great time doing it?
COME JOIN OUR CAMP!
Children’s Beach House (CBH) is seeking more male staff to serve as camp counselors during our summer camp. Join us as we live, eat, and work on site during the summer, and get to spend that time fully immersed in the lives of the children we serve!
Our camp is a part of our year-round Youth Development Program, which serves children with special needs through 5-day sessions in the summer, weekend camps through the school year, as well as case management all year long. Our campers stay with us from the time they enter the program (between ages 7 and 12) until they turn 18, and with only 32 kids on site at a time, we are quite a tight-knit family!
Counselors are responsible for activity planning and implementation, meal supervision, and dormitory management while guiding behaviors that support and further Positive Youth Development. That means you get to be coach, big brother, teacher, rule enforcer, cheerleader, tie-dyer, and song-leader, depending on what the moment calls for. And always a friend and role model.
Please note, we are a coed camp, but right now I am looking specifically for more male applicants to keep our staff balanced and meet our campers' needs. Females are still welcome to apply, but there are fewer jobs on the girls' side of camp still available.
All prospective counselors must be at least 18 years old and a year out of high school, will be subject to a criminal background check and will be provided with the training needed to be successful in working with our youth. We put all of our staff through Ellis & Associates Lifeguarding training, so applicants should be strong swimmers. Some preference will be given to applicants who are at least 21, with a valid driver's license and clean driving record. Please note that this job is summers only, but there are opportunities for extra work during the summer, and successful staff who live nearby will be offered opportunities to continue to work weekends during the school year; staff who live near enough to continue to work during the school year will receive some preference over those from far away. We expect that you have experience or at least a demonstrated interest in working with children.
Staff must be able to commit to working June 10-August 3, with time off on most weekends. Some counselors will also be asked to work August 6-12. Check us out our organization at www.cbhinc.org, and learn more about the position/complete an application here.
