The fun-o-meter can escalate pretty quickly! As a counselor, you must maintain order on all occasions in camp, out of camp and in all buildings. You will look out for campers’ health and well-being. If necessary, you will need to send campers to the infirmary for treatment. It is important to empower your campers to keep neat and clean, encouraging frequent showers and good personal hygiene habits.
You will be responsible for your program area. This includes actively participating in the organization and execution of activities, motivating campers to pursue goals in the program, and maintaining the space where the program is taking place. While you will be responsible for teaching only in your program area, we pride ourselves on providing campers with a well-rounded experience at Birch Hill so it is important to encourage your camper’s participation in all of the scheduled program areas.
