Type of Camp
Camp Shalom is an all-around, overnight camp, which means that we’re summer home to all kinds of kids and all kinds of counselors! We offer many activities for campers to choose from, and campers participate in a well-rounded schedule. Camp activities include sports, fitness, outdoor adventure programs, creative arts, boating, and much more.

Job Description for Counselor
You will fulfill two roles while at camp. The first and most important is as a counselor. Counselors are exceptional people and role models who have been hired after an interview and background checks. Counselors take the role of caring for other peoples’ children with the utmost seriousness and they are ready to and excited about putting the needs of children before their own. Counselors live in a bunk with 8-10 campers and 1-2 co-counselors. There, they are responsible for each child’s general welfare. This includes handling miscommunications, comforting campers with homesickness, helping and guiding campers to clean their cabins daily, and much more. The other part of your job involves teaching an activity that you have interest and experience in. Activities include coaching sports, leading adventure activities, teaching art, drama, media, just to name a few.

Being a camp counselor isn’t easy, but we think it’s the best job in the world.
