All of our counselors are required to be 18 years old on their first day of work. At this time, we are not hiring Junior Counselors for the coming camp season. If you are under the age of 18 and still interested in working with River Way Ranch Camp in some capacity, please check out our C.I.T. (Counselor In Training) program.
Our counselors are contracted from anywhere between 8-9 weeks, depending upon enrollment and the counselor’s availability. In addition to the contracted time working for camp, all of our counselors are required to attend a comprehensive staff training including activity instruction, child psychology, behavior modification, and camp operations. Additional trainings are available for those who are interested. Additional trainings include: Lifeguard certification, Ropes Course belay certification, Paintball facilitation, and waterfront training.
The video component of the application is NOT mandatory. However, as we do receive hundreds of applications each year, we do encourage the supplemental video to help us get to know you a little bit better. When making the video, please make it fun and exciting and make sure that it shows off YOU! Show us your interests, your teaching abilities, and your personality.
