Sleep Away Camp Junior Counselor 2015

The Junior Counselor program is for girls who would like to further enhance their leadership skills by learning what it's like to be a Camp Counselor at Sleep Away Camp.  More information about the program and sessions available appears within the application below.  This is a great option for girls planning on being camp counselors in the future and who will have completed 11th or 12th grade by summer 2015, but who are not yet 18 years old.

For girls who have completed 8th - 11th grade, check out the Leadership Programs (Counselor in Training etc).

The application deadline for Summer 2015 is Wednesday, February 11, 2015 at 12:00 NOON.  All parts of the application, including at least two references, must turned in together by this date. Applications received after the deadline will only be considered if there are still positions available at the desired camp.

All Junior Counselor applicants will be interviewed; space is limited and placement is not guaranteed. Placement in the program is based on experience and at the discretion of the Camp Director. Junior Counselors will receive notification of their placement by March 20, 2015. Girls will receive a stipend for being a Junior Counselor. JCs must leave camp on weekend breaks; bus transportation is available at no cost.  If girls are not able to attend for the entire length of the session, other arrangements can be discussed with the Camp Director during the interview.
