This coupled with sessions that teach invaluable skills in teaching, group leadership, and basic camp counseling techniques provide an opportunity for you to gain skills that are valuable in any career. Lifeguarding certification is also available at no cost.
At camp, you will live in a new community. You will be exposed to many new situations with your co-workers, campers, and supervisors. Your ability to live and work productively with different people will help develop you into a greater person.
Each summer during our paid staff training period, we re-evaluate our camp program. It is the responsibility of each staff member to ensure the continued tradition of quality programming at Anokijig. This is done by constantly seeking new and improving ideas to enhance the standard program. We take great pride in making the greatest possible use of all that a new and returning staff member has to offer.
Most of all you get to make a positive influence on many young people's lives.
Not to mention, it's FUN!
