IL Camp Staff Application

Monday, May 1, 2017
Description: Thank you for your interest in serving as a counselor for Camp Life 2017. We are accepting applications through Monday March 27, 2017 for the two summer camps offered by Children's Aid Society's Independent Living Program. Camp Life (Older), June 20 - 22, 2017 is for youth in foster care ages 17 - 20. Camp Life (Younger), July 11 - 13, 2017 is for youth in foster care ages 14 - 16. Camp Life is conducted on the Campus of the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Campers experience life skills training, and recreation activities. Camp Life provides a unique opportunity for young people in foster care who otherwise aren't given this type of experience outside of their foster home and / or group home.

This year's Camp theme is S.T.A.N.D. Stay Tru and Never Deviate. Young people in foster care are encouraged to take a stand for themselves and be comfortable with who they are.

The qualities we look for in our staff include, boundless enthusiasm, putting others before self, sensitivity to camper needs, willingness to work, dedication and loyalty. Prior experience in a camp setting is not a requirement for working as part of our team, however it is a bonus! Working with children in professional settings, teaching skills, and certifications are also assets to your application.

You must be 19 years old or older prior to March 28, 2017 to apply. Also, thorough background checks are completed on all applicants in compliance with State requirements.
