SUMMER CAMP JOBS:
Camp Courageous is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides year-round recreational and respite care for individuals with a variety of disabilities/ability levels. Our campers served come from nursing homes, group homes, and independent/single homes, many with mild, moderate, and profound intellectual and physical disabilities. At camp we hope to inspire a world where individuals with special needs are empowered with courage, to look beyond their current capabilities and explore the world with confidence.

As a camp counselor you will be responsible for the care of these individuals, whether it be with personal care, eating, adapting activities to their ability levels, and overall providing them with an exceptional vacation from their usual routines.
Working with children and adults with different ability levels can often come with some challenges but they come with even greater results. Campers may require additional assistance with personal care including feeding, dressing, and bathroom needs, and others may require behavioral redirection. The hours required are long but by the end of the week you have made many best friends. Many campers are unable to acquire these unique experiences except at camp, so even with these additional needs, you are able to experience the special moments in these individual’s lives.

Volunteer, internships, and paid positions are all available. Volunteers and Interns can receive an optional stipend of $50.00/week plus room and board. Paid counselors and activity specialists receive the best employment package around with a base pay of $490/week with possible additions, and room and board being provided, which includes air-conditioned staff dormitories affording the staff separate living quarters from the campers. (Staff do share nightly cabin duty on a rotating basis.) Other benefits include a health insurance plan and one week of paid vacation for year-round staff. Camp provides a bonus for returning seasonal summer staff and a monetary incentive for recruiting additional summer staff. Candidates for year- round positions must have experience working with individuals of varying ability levels. Seasonal positions are for one or more season.

YR-ROUND: Starts the first day of the season requiring a one year commitment.
SUMMER: May 17- August 14, 2020
