Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Stone Mountain Adventures family. The success of SMA is due in large part to the talents, abilities and hard work of our staff. It is for this reason we invest such a great deal of time and attention to hiring the best staff possible.
Camp counseling is one of the best (if not the best) jobs in the world. There is no better way to spend a summer than at camp. You will have the opportunity to make a real difference in a teenager’s life. The experiences you have and the friendships you develop at camp with the campers and other counselors will stay with you for years to come.
Eligibility and Requirements for Camp Counselors at SMA:
Camp counseling is not an easy job and it can be very difficult at times. In order to do well in camp, it’s important to have a genuine interest in children. Unless you truly enjoy living and working with kids on a 24-hour basis, it is best not to seek employment at a summer camp. Job satisfaction has to be a key element in your desire to work at a summer camp. Since camp counseling positions, for the most part, do not pay as well as other summer jobs, the rewards you derive from working with children must be significant. Otherwise, the job will grow very tiresome during the course of the summer and your desire to continue employment will wane. Enjoying your time with our campers is critical. Being able to relate to teenagers and assume responsibilities of supervision & care for teenagers are essential qualities of a successful staff member. In short, we’re seeking talented, fun, outgoing, and enthusiastic individuals who can provide quality instruction on activities. Our philosophy is “you can never expect a camper to be more excited about an activity than you are.”
Some questions you might ask yourself in order to evaluate your potential for success at SMA are:
As part of SMA staff, you become a role model for our campers. Your behavior will have a big impact upon the lives of these youngsters! It stands to reason, therefore, that we are seeking individuals with high moral character. In the past, our staff members have exhibited good sportsmanship, strong loyalty, honesty, and the ability to work hard in order for the camp experience to be a memorable & positive one for our campers! We intend to continue this tradition at SMA this coming summer.
