Thank you for your interest in applying for a counselor position at the Meadowbrook Day Camp. We have updated this page as of April for 2021.
We hire group and specialty counselors who enjoy children and who are able to provide a cheerful, nurturing, safe environment for them. Leadership qualities, dependability, cooperativeness, a sense of humor, sports ability, and enthusiasm are all traits that we value.
The day camp hires three levels of counselors to work during the summer months.
Senior Group Counselors are all 21 years or older with some teaching, parenting, group leadership or related experience.
Assistant Group Counselors are college or high school students with a variety of majors and outside interests who assist the Senior Group Counselors. Openings are extremely limited at this level and often don't become available until late spring if at all.
Lead Specialty Counselors are college students or older who have a definite skill in or knowledge about a particular activity: art, archery, boating, ceramics, drama, leather craft, ropes, music, dance, team sports, etc. Swim Staff are certified Lifeguards with current LGT certification. Our swim staff members are expected to teach Red Cross Swim lessons and preference is given to persons who hold a WSI or who are willing to get certification prior to the start of camp.
