The fitness class at camp is designed to promote an active lifestyle for campers ranging in grades 5th-11th. On a typical day, our Fitness Activity Head will oversee up to 3 classes. You’ll be responsible for the fitness lesson plan and the equipment we have in our fitness area.
As a fitness instructor your classes should be fun, motivating and engaging. You will need to be creative in making lesson plans for different ages of campers. You’ll create workouts using a variety of different methods teaching campers how to stretch, move, lift, and choose a healthy lifestyle! Fitness helps promote self-confidence and you will be bringing that out in our campers. You will find yourself growing more confident too.
Each class period is one hour each. There will be up to three class periods of fitness each day.
We allow campers ranging in 5th-11th grades to take fitness. There will be 3 class periods allowing each class to be categorized for specific age groups. There will be no more than 25 campers in each fitness class. You may have other counselors in each class to help assist you and carry out the lesson plans for each period.
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.
