Applicants should be at least twenty-one years old and have leadership experience working with teenagers (ages 13-18) at a camp or other residential setting. First Aid, CPR, Lifeguard Training, clean Driver’s License and Mac Computer Skills a plus.
Please indicate if you are interested in a DAY COUNSELOR position or a RESIDENTIAL COUNSELOR position.
Residential counselors are an integral part of SOCAPA's day-to-day programming. RAs are assigned a group or a floor of students in each session, and are the first-contact for when campers have questions about meals, schedules, roommate issues, illness, and more. Working as a part of a team under the Resident Director's leadership, RAs organize and supervise evening and weekend activities, coordinate student transportation, and are on call to assist with medical or other emergencies. During the day, RAs assist in classes or on shoots as Teaching Assistants, or assist with office tasks/activity preparation. Applicants should have strong leadership skills, a positive work ethic, and the ability to work well collaboratively. Enthusiasm for the job, high energy and adaptability are essential for the position. Applicants must be at least 21 years old.
SOCAPA's Day Counselors assist with student transportation on trips or as students arrive/depart camp, and provide additional supervision as needed. Day counselors who are not teaching assistants typically work flexible schedules with more limited hours than our residential counselors.
