SO YOU WANT TO BE ON STAFF? OUTSTANDING!
Being a camp counselor can be the most fun, exciting, and rewarding job you ever do. Countless individuals fall in love with the camp experience each summer, and many make it part of their lives year after year. Campers remember their counselors for many summers and often return because of them. At Camp Hawkeye we believe that our staff is the most important asset that we have. A good counselor can make almost any situation fun, rewarding and memorable for campers. Quality counselors are immeasurably more important than the latest technological gadgets, indoor athletic facilities or a lighted stadium.
PLAY, LAUGH, LEARN AND GROW
Camp is about creativity, curiosity, and letting your imagination determine and drive the summer's fun. Counselors get to play, learn, laugh and grow each day along with our campers. Many staff use camp as a chance to get away from their busy, crowded, fast-paced, cement-filled lives. They enjoy the smell of the air in the woods, and, the sounds of the birds in the trees as a backdrop for a memorable summer.
A SERIOUS JOB WITH REAL RESPONSIBILITIES
While doing all of these things, counselors need to realize the tremendous responsibility that comes along with their role. Counselors are "on call" each and every hour of each and every day. Whether it be at noon or at midnight, if your group or an individual camper has an issue that needs to be addressed, a question that needs to be answered, or there is a child that needs to be reassured, you will be the adult they are looking to. Counselors are responsible for the the physical and psychological well-being of each camper at Camp Hawkeye. Staff members pay particular attention to their own cabin groups or activity areas but must be cognizant of all of those around them and are expected to get to know campers in the entire community.
