Junior Counselor Program (JC)

Bar

MTV NightPurpose:

This program will offer CITs the opportunity to continue their training as a counselor and will allow them to take on greater responsibility in their specialty area. This is a compensated position while allowing the individual the opportunity to contribute to camp. The intent of this program is to prepare individuals to become camp counselors the following summer.

Background:

We find many of our best counselors were once campers themselves. The JC program is set up to bridge the gap between an individual's summers as a camper and working as a counselor.

Requirements:

  • 17 years of age and entering senior year of high school, or its equivalent
  • Previous Windridge camper
  • Mature, trustworthy, responsible, leadership qualities, and ability to abide by camp rules and regulations
  • Attend at least two sessions and up to the full summer *Note that we will give priority to applicants that can stay the full summer.

Responsibilities:

  • The training and supervision of all JCs will be the responsibility of the JC/CIT Director.
  • A JC has many of the responsibilities of a counselor (employee) yet will always work under the direct supervision of other mentor counselors.
  • Meet with the JC Director as part of the training and evaluation process. This will include program, resident life, evening activities and special events.
  • Follow all camp counselor rules and regulations.
  • Work with other staff to develop and help run evening activities and special events.
  • Live in a cabin with campers under the guidance of a mentor counselor living in the same cabin. Mentors will be counselors that will help train and evaluate JCs in the responsibilities of resident life.
  • Work in an activity area as do regular camp counselors.

CarnivalTime off is subject to the approval of the JC Director and includes:

  • One free period each regular schedule day.
  • One day off each week.
  • One early night each week from 6:30 - 12:00 pm.
  • Every night after cabin is all quiet and until 12:00 pm.

How to apply:

  • Read through all of the materials.
  • Decide if you are willing to accept the responsibilities of a Junior Counselor.
  • Apply as would a regular counselor through our web site and go through the normal interview process.
  • There is no tuition fee.
  • You will be compensated $350 for a two week session and $525 for a three week session. JC are expected to work at least two of our three sessions.
