Stated simply … putting others’ needs before your own. The success of each individual camper’s experience depends on the willingness of our staff to go all out, all the time. We want you to spend time getting to know the campers – what are their likes and dislikes, how can you inspire and motivate them, what to do to comfort them when they misstep or get homesick. Opportunities to develop these relationships abound through your cabin involvement, dining hall experience, and class instruction time.
Living in a Cabin -- As a guide you live (or at the very least, spend a lot of time) in a cabin with one other staff member with campers. You host meals with this group and you are the last person to say goodnight to them.
Teaching Classes -- You will teach and/or assist in one or two class departments. This may mean developing your own curriculum for a baseball or fused glass class or simply assisting with instruction in organic gardening or lifeguarding for water games. You will be assigned classes based on your own personal skills, hobbies, and interest areas. You will maintain your own unique schedule and will follow this same schedule throughout the duration of a term. Each day you will have one off period.
Being a Role Model -- Most importantly, you will be expected to remember that no matter where you are in camp, what you are doing, or what you are saying, there is one camper listening, watching, and learning!
It is rare, in my opinion, to come across a place that you connect with so well that you never want to leave. The people, the kids, the activities, and the location all add up to one incredible experience.
