Our summer recreation offers rewarding opportunities to work directly with children, gain valuable leadership skills, and have fun! We employ Senior Counselors to fill a limited number of positions that oversee and facilitate the daily activities of the Summer Buddies program. Junior Counselors gain training and experience in volunteer positions by providing support to Senior Counselors and Camp Directors. Junior Counselors can also earn community service hours and prepare for future Senior Counselor positions.
