Training programs serve 80-100 children ages 5-13; the Cubs program
serves 20-35 children ages 4-5.
Camp Acoma counselors are responsible for assisting lead counselors
and camp directors in all arts, technology, athletic, recreational and
field trip activities. Counselors report to lead counselors and Acoma
directors to ensure a safe, fun, enriching and nurturing environment
for all campers. Camp counselors are scheduled for 25-38 hours per
week around the Camp Acoma schedule, which operates Monday-Friday,
8:30am to 3:30pm.
Experience in teaching children ages 4-13 and day/recreational camp
experience is preferred. Candidates with experience in lifeguarding,
swim instruction, visual and performing arts and technology
instruction are desired. Candidates with interest or experience in
leading team building and adventure-based learning for older campers
(ages 8-13) are also encouraged to apply.
