Junior Counselor (JC) in Training Program
Enrolling in our Junior Counselor in Training Program at Country Day Camp makes for a very fun and rewarding summer experience. If you are responsible, high energy, hard working, self motivated and LOVE to work with children this may be the ideal volunteer opportunity for you! Our Junior Counselors enrolled in this program will have the opportunity to learn from and work alongside our incredible staff. As a volunteer in this program you will be trained in a variety of tasks: assisting camp counselors with their groups, helping specialty instructors with their classes and helping set up for our weekly shows. This is the perfect program for those who want to learn all about what it takes to be a camp counselor. The experience this summer will prepare you to be the best camp counselor in the future.
You will start out the summer by attending our mandatory “Orientation Week” so that you get to know our staff and start learning the inner workings of camp. Due to this being a volunteer program there is no minimum time commitment during camp (June 26 – August 18, 2023), but to enroll you must be available during Orientation week (June 19-23, 2023 from 9am to 3:30pm). If you would like to apply for Summer 2023 please fill out and submit the application below. Our Director of Summer Programs, Melissa Sandoval, will reach out to you to set up an interview sometime before Friday, May 3rd. This is a popular program with very limited space available, but we encourage you to apply if you dream of being a camp counselor in the future!
