Camp Celo Counselors

We are no longer accepting applications for 2017.

Being a counselor at Camp Celo is a rewarding and fun experience for those who enjoy children and want to work with them in a relaxed and fun environment.

Most counselors are responsible for a tent group of five campers. In addition everyone has another program area that they take leadership in. These areas are arts & crafts, wood shop, nature, skits, group games, and gardening.
During morning projects you will be asked to lead a variety of fun projects, from inner tubing to jug band music, to mud wrestling. These vary from year to year depending on the interests and skills of the counselors.
In Senior camp, in addition to the other camp responsibilities, two counselors lead groups of 9 campers on backpacking trips. Each session there will be a 2, 3, and 4-day hike.
We need quite a few counselors with Lifeguard Training in each group. No one is only a lifeguard, but many of our activities involve water and a lifeguard needs to be present anytime campers are in the water. Those with a current certification earn an additional $250.
Senior camp needs several counselors trained in Wilderness First Aid, and those with this training will earn an additional $300.
Counselors are hired for the full season: June 9 - August 19. Starting salary is $1,500, with additional pay for prior counseling experience and special skills such as Lifeguard Training and Wilderness First Aid. Counselors must be 18 years old with at least 1 year of college or equivalent experience.
