Being a Junior Camp Counselor is a huge responsibility, it is not something someone can simply sign up for. Juniors are extensions of our staff, and are expected to behave with maturity and compassion towards other counselors, campers and of course all the animals at the sanctuary. Counselors are volunteers, not campers – it is a fun and rewarding experience, but there is a lot of hard work involved. There will be plenty of animal time, of course! But being a Junior Camp Counselor will also involve a lot of cleaning of camp areas, daily activity preparation, helping campers feel comfortable at camp, helping campers with their crafts, games, and animal time, assisting counselors with lessons, and being enthusiastic, communicative, and supportive of campers as well as fellow team members.
Who we are NOT Looking for: Do you dislike doing household chores? Does the sight of animal poop make you gag? Do you run in the other direction at the sight of young children? Have you ever been described as unreliable? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this is probably not the right volunteer opportunity for you!
