Camp Champions asks a lot of its counselors. We have found that the more we put into our counselors, the more they give back to the kids and to the community.
You will be living in a cabin with your campers. There isn’t air conditioning. Many of the comforts of home are gone but you are given the gift of being present with over 100 of your peers working together towards a goal greater than yourself.
You love kids. You will get to be a positive role model in hundreds of kids lives. The smallest ripple will start something great. You may not even know it when it happens, but something small will be something great to a child, leading them on to extraordinary things.
We are not at Camp Champions to be parents or supervisors. You will be this child’s role model, their mentor, and their friend. The days will be long, they will even get hot (we are in Central Texas), but the memories created here will echo in your mind the rest of your life.
Many of your friends will be pushing paper and doing menial tasks as they fulfill the obligations of their internships this summer. Camp Champions counselors will be learning real marketable skills that will make them more attractive to future employers. If you have doubts about this, please read below and contact one of our directors with questions.
These skills are nurtured and found in great quantities at camp. You will come out of the summer with an over abundance of these skills in relation to your peers who spent their time in less demanding office positions.
We will help you build the narrative that will land that future job—pretty much anywhere. Is there a place where those skills aren’t needed?
Being a summer camp counselor is a BIG deal. It’s important you think about what you’re getting into. The duties listed below aren’t the only duties you will perform—some may be assigned while others may not—we call it “being flexible!”
