    We hire up to 20 staff every summer. Our camp is unusual in that we have up to 48 girls per
    week so staff have both cabin counseling and program responsibilities. As a cabin counselor,
    staff are role models, best friends, entertainers, inspirations, big sisters, and parents to their
    cabin group.
    Program responsibilities include teaching and managing in a specific program area such
    as arts & crafts, sports, or riding.  We look for staff who love working with children and are
    creative, fun, and patient.  We also look for staff with excellent teaching skills, and strong
    skills in at least program area.  

    Because of our small size, we can create a position specially designed for individuals
    with a variety of interests or talents.  For instance, someone might work in the arts & crafts
    program for a short time each day, then take a group on a nature hike, teach sign language,
    or juggling, and then help with gardening, cleaning, or office work.  This variety allows staff
    the opportunity to try new things, develop skills in a variety of areas, and to enjoy working with
    a diverse group of campers and other staff. Never a dull moment at SJ!
