Time to apply for summer camp jobs
It’s hiring season for summer camp counselors, with applications now open to work at day camps in Cashiers and Waynesville.
Youth who are rising seventh graders through age 15 can apply for the Volunteer Counselor in Training Program with Waynesville Parks and Recreation Department Base Camp.
The program provides young adults who are no longer eligible to attend day camp but not old enough to work as a counselor with the chance to develop the skills necessary to become an exceptional youth programs counselor as they get older. The program’s main objective is to offer an educational and recreational alternative for young adults in the community.
Each applicant must meet numerous criteria, including attending organizational meetings, completing necessary paperwork, attending summer program staff training and demonstrating enthusiasm and competency. Recreational activity knowledge and experience is a plus, and applicants must display a genuine interest in personal development of program participants.
