transition from camper to counselor. They will work as part of a group to design and

in our summer camps while also taking on the roles and responsibilities of a junior
counselor. The program includes mentoring, opportunities for reflection and growth,
and a focus on developing your individual leadership style. Come Join Our Team!

1. Shift Perspective: See challenges as learning opportunities.
2. Find Teachable Moments: Sometimes you are the learner, sometimes you are the teacher.
3. Connect Positively with the World: Be in the moment and enjoy what the world has to offer.
4. Connect Positively with Yourself and Others: Be proud of what makes you unique and find positive connection with others.
5. Celebrate: Capture the moment and take time enjoy your successes.
