Lead Counselors are adults in charge of a specific age group of campers and those campers’ assigned staff members. For example, a group of 30 first graders would be supervised by one Lead and a staff of 3 General Counselors. The Lead’s main responsibility is to ensure the safety and welfare of their designated campers and staff. Lead Counselor’s are also responsible for overseeing camper progress while keeping to our camp schedule. They additionally serve as the direct link between camp and home, and must be capable of maintaining a strong camp/parent partnership.
Lead Counselors must possess strong organizational and leadership skills, be adept at multi-tasking and be able to motivate their General Counselors and campers. Successful Leads are enthusiastic, supportive, caring and kind individuals. They possess strong communication skills and are spirited, reliable and professional at all times. We have an exceptionally high return rate at the Lead levels…Our Lead Counselors are highly experienced, capable camp pros!
