Welcome to the Camp Alleghany for Girls Camp Counselor World
If you’re thinking about becoming a camp counselor then you’re thinking about one of the toughest, most creative, most rewarding, and most demanding jobs a young person can get. And if you become one, you’ll get all the rewards that come with that — meaning valuable experience and an excellent resume point.
So thank you for considering us, and welcome!
We’re so glad you’re thinking about joining our team. At Camp Alleghany for Girls we take very seriously the privilege and immense responsibility of taking care of other peoples’ children. And of taking care of those children themselves — our campers are our greatest joy and this job is ALL ABOUT THEM — the campers! 🙂
If you think you have what it takes to give of yourself in the pursuit of helping to nurture, inspire, and educate young campers, and to model the highest level of ethical, responsible, focused, and uplifting behavior, then camp counseling might be a perfect fit for you.
Interestingly, many qualities that it takes to be a camp counselor — long hours, selfless service, physical strength, creativity, organization, time management, self-starting, warmth, clear communication, and being a team player — are all ones that employers across the spectrum seek in their employees. To that end, being a camp counselor is a HUGE piece in what it takes to join the adult world with your budding career goals.
Some even believe it is more important — or as important — as an internship. And we have lots of information to back that up. To learn more about being a camp counselor, read the following support pages:
