We’re so glad you’re thinking about joining our camp staff team. At Camp Tannadoonah we take very seriously the privilege and immense responsibility of taking care of other peoples’ children. And of taking care of those children themselves — our campers are our greatest joy and this job is ALL ABOUT THEM — the campers!
If you’re thinking about becoming a camp staff member then you’re thinking about one of the toughest, most creative, most rewarding, and most demanding jobs a young person can get. And if you become one, you’ll get all the rewards that come with that — meaning valuable experience and an excellent resume point.
Kitchen staff includes positions for the kitchen manager and kitchen assistants. Kitchen staff assist with the preparation of meals, meeting health department standards, and cleanup after meals. All kitchen staff report to the Kitchen Manager. Kitchen staff members also have the opportunity to be involved in the facilitation of other camp programs, such as helping teach classes, and coordinating evening activities.
If you think you have what it takes to give of yourself in the pursuit of helping to nurture, inspire, and educate young campers, and to model the highest level of ethical, responsible, focused, and uplifting behavior, then camp counseling might be a perfect fit for you.
Interestingly, many qualities that it takes to be a camp staff member — long hours, selfless service, physical strength, creativity, organization, time management, self-starting, warmth, clear communication, and being a team player — are all ones that employers across the spectrum seek in their employees. To that end, being a camp counselor is a HUGE piece in what it takes to join the adult world with your budding career goals.
Young people want to shape the world.
