Cooking is a camper favorite. Who doesn’t love making brownies, cookies, pasta, cakes and other awesome recipes? As a cooking instructor, you will help campers be creative in the kitchen with many tasty projects. As the Activity Head of Cooking you will be working with a small group of campers and your guidance will help them develop their skills in creativity and co-operation, all while making incredible recipes! This role will help you gain teaching experience and gain confidence working with children.
The cooking activity periods are one hour long and you’ll teach 4 cooking periods a day while using the last period of each day to restock the cooking class and prepare ingredients for following day.
There will be two cooking classes going on simultaneously with different ages in each class. We offer cooking 1 to our campers grades 1st-6th grade and cooking 2 to our campers grades 7th-11th grade. There will be a counselor leading each class and the class sizes are typically around 12 campers each.
The salary is competitive and there is a $400 bonus for those who stay all summer. Unlike other summer jobs where you immediately spend the money you earn, summer camp staff are able to save their summer salary.
Counselors take off two nights per week and a day and a half between sessions. In addition, counselors have a free period for an hour each activity day. We have a counselor den for our counselors to relax, use their phones and computers during this time.
Housing and meals eaten at camp are free. Laundry service is provided twice a session. Your staff uniform shirts that are worn on opening and closing day are free. You can use many camp facilities during your free time, as long as it does not take away from a class or camper.
We require all of our staff to attend staff orientation which is typically the last week in May and into the first week in June. We strongly encourage Senior Counselors to work the entire summer which is 8 weeks and will accept Senior Counselors to work 4 consecutive weeks. All Junior Counselors must work 4 consecutive weeks.
We call our community the camp bubble. We strive to put Christ first in everything we do and talk about Him daily. While it may be hard to be a Christian in the “real world”, it’s cool to be a Christian at camp. The administration will pour into you and your walk with Christ during your time here.
