Counselors are the back bone of any camp. At Golden Slipper Camp counselors work in teams of two in a cabin with 8 to 10 campers, looking after their general welfare from wake-up to bedtime, including meals, inspection, showers and evening programs. During the day, most counselors work at a specific activity in which they have a strong background and are comfortable teaching. Counselors must be high school graduates.
Specialists are staff members who coordinate one of our pool, lake, adventure or arts & crafts programs during the day. Specialists are also fully involved in all aspects of camp programming for the entire camp day with certain extra responsibilities (such as driving). These positions require the proper certifications and experience.
We also hire several people for specialized positions, including Wellness Center Staff and Kitchen Staff. These people must be proficient in their particular areas.
