Have fun at camp and get paid too! Camp Sertoma for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children is looking for signing cabin counselors and Deaf or hard of hearing cabin counselors to provide leadership and daily support of Deaf, hard of hearing or hearing children with Deaf or hard of hearing family members for our weeklong Camp Sertoma for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children (formerly known as Sertoma Deaf Camp).
Camp Sertoma is held at Millstone 4-H Center, in the heart of the Sandhills Gamelands, near Ellerbe, NC. Counselors will be required to attend training the Friday or Saturday before camp starts and then provide assistance and leadership during the week of Camp Sertoma (at Millstone).
Training days: June 23, 24 & 25
Camp week: June 25-30, 2017
Applicants should have skills to work with Deaf,
hard of hearing and hearing campers. Certified
Interpreters as well as ASL 101 students are
encouraged to apply. Prior experience with
working with children in a camping environment
will be considered. Applicants must be at least
18 and have completed high school.
Campers will be assigned to cabins by age
group (4 adventurous/outdoorsy staff will be
placed in adventure camp).
Our ratio of counselors to campers will be 1:4 for each cabin. We are anticipating up to 6 cabins of boys and 6 cabins of girls and 20 campers in adventure camp.
Counselors will stay in the cabins with the campers and accompany them throughout the week to all activities. Signing counselors will work in conjunction with the non-signing 4-H summer staff to make the week of Camp Sertoma a memorable and meaningful week for all campers.
Camp Sertoma Signing Staff will be paid depending on experience. Staff members receive a salary, meals, housing, and training. You will be paid for the training day(s) as well as camp week.
