More about the position:
Aquatics Program Counselors facilitate all of our pool and waterfront activities! These activities include boating, dock jumps, pool parties, open recreation, swim lessons, polar bear swims, and “Get Wet Get Dirty.” Other duties include cleaning and caring for the pool and equipment. Program Counselors live in cabins with Cabin Counselors and campers, serving as a counselor when not working in their assigned program area. Those who have spent time as a certified lifeguard, swim instructor, or swim coach are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants must be able to swim 500 yards uninterrupted and dive up to 12 feet in open water. We will offer a lifeguard course prior to the start of staff training for individuals who are not already certified. Aquatics Program Counselors perform other duties as assigned and are led by the Aquatics Unit Director.
