More about the position:
Adventure Team Program Counselors facilitate all of our low and high Challenge Course elements, many group initiatives, and our BMX track! All Program Counselors live in cabins with Cabin Counselors and campers, serving as a Cabin Counselor when not working in their assigned program area. During staff training at Camp Orkila, Adventure Team members complete an intensive challenge course facilitation training led by Synergo. We are looking for applicants who have some challenge course experience, even if only as a participant, and who love helping people to push themselves and learn from their experiences. Applicants must be very safety conscious and dedicated to using good practices at all times. The ability to be physically active and spend time 30-60 feet off the ground is also important. Adventure Team Program Counselors perform other duties as assigned and are led by two Adventure Team Unit Directors.
Please note that if you are interested in multiple positions with Camp Orkila this summer it is only necessary to apply to one posting. We will be happy to consider you for all open positions during the interview process.
