Responsibility Of Counselors?
You will live in a cabin (not air-conditioned) with 12 campers and one or two counselors. You will also teach 10 activities a day, each activity being 30 minutes long. Your main focus is to be a positive role model – counselors make the camp and are chosen by their ability to give campers a healthy, valuable, inspirational and fun term.
What We Expect From Our Counselors
A role model to children of all ages. Clean in appearance, thoughts and actions and totally dedicated to the health, safety and happiness of the campers.
What Hours Do Counselors Work?
Inks Lake and Indian Springs counselors are hired for one term with an opportunity to work more as Camp receives openings. Since C3 offers one-week terms, there is a possibility of being hired for multiple terms. CLH believes counselors need some time for R&R away from campers and offers regularly scheduled time off. Your director will discuss work responsibilities and liberties with you.
What Do Counselors Get Paid?
All counselor pay is based on performance, age, number of years at Camp, and responsibilities. In addition to your pay check, each counselor receives room, board, laundry, meals, education, sun and lots of fun. The directors will be more specific.
Who Are We Looking For?
Anyone who enjoys being around kids. We prefer to hire someone with a year of college. We do have a limit on junior counselors (graduates of Chief/Ranger program or a high school graduate).
Are There Other Positions Available?
We do have other positions available: office, annual and photography, Pit Stop (infirmary) and food service. Ask a director for more information.
We will have a 24-hour counselor school before each term for all summer employees.
Bless You Brave New Counselors
Even though new counselors are a minority group at Camp Longhorn, you are more than welcomed by everyone for the contributions you can make to the campers, for your new ideas, and for the pleasure of working with you. Camp Longhorn is like a big family, with everyone taking care of everyone else. You will have big and little friends on every side to help you through the confusion of the first few days. If you like children and they like you... that's it! Your job here is to provide your campers with a healthy, valuable, happy and inspirational term at Camp. Your cabin campers are the most important assignment. You will be teaching some classes in the activities you checked first and second preference. Activity and cabin assignments are made after your arrival.
