As a Ropes and Climbing counselor at Camp Skyline, you’ll enjoy working in the beautiful outdoors on top of Lookout Mountain. You will assist the ropes course director in setting up and checking equipment each day prior to the first class. During the activity you will be doing everything from belaying campers to working a station, in the air or on the ground. You will also assist and encourage campers as they make their way through the course. If you are a counselor in our ropes and climbing classes you will more than likely be there for several periods each day.
Each class period is one hour long and you will most likely be in ropes or climbing 5 periods a day.
Ropes and climbing are both popular activities at camp there will be no more than 48 campers in a ropes class at one time. There are many counselors in this activity too.
NONE!! We will teach you everything you’ll need to know if you are willing to work hard.
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.
