Be a Camp Counselor—Mentor—Role Model

counselors (2)

LUM Camp Counselors are invaluable volunteers who spend their whole day with one group of campers. They are role models who assist and motivate campers whether they are trying to learn a new skill or they have concerns about an issue or idea. Throughout the day LUM Volunteer Camp Counselors monitor and participate in the group’s activities and do everything in their power to make each of their campers’ week the most memorable yet. LUM Volunteer Camp Counselors must be fun-loving, patient and genuinely concerned for the welfare and development of young people.

The family environment of LUM Camp will give you many rewards beyond camp food, bonfires and camp songs. The benefits are numerous – the rewards of working with children, spending a week in the invigorating outdoor environment of Hanging Rock Camp, and potentially gaining new skills and experiences.

Volunteer camp counselors must be at least 18 years old and be able to spend the entire week at LUM Camp (from 11 a.m. on Monday, July 29 to 4 p.m. on Friday, August 2).

Don’t miss out on this unique volunteer opportunity. Applications for volunteer camp counselors for the overnight camp are now being accepted. Go to:http://www.lumserve.org/camp.html
