Positions & Policies
Camp Skyline has two types of counselors- Senior and Junior Counselors. Senior Counselor positions are available for women who have graduated from High School. Junior Counselor positions are available for women who are going into their Senior year of High School.
Every counselor at Skyline will live with and have charge of at least 12-16 campers in her cabin. There are always two Senior Counselors and one Junior Counselor in a cabin. A good cabin counselor is tremendously popular and influential with her campers as a mother, sister, and friend.
At camp, attention to detail and devotion to duty are highly important! A Young lady seeking a position must have a sincere desire to follow instructions, as well as give of her talents and ingenuity — all in good spirit and harmony with the camp administration.
Camp Skyline has policies that all counselors are expected to follow. If you feel that you might not be able to abide by these policies then please do not apply.
Cell Phone Policy
While counselors are allowed to have their cell phones at camp, campers are not. Counselors may not have their cell phones in their cabin. Counselors may keep their cell phone in the counselor den or in their car. Counselors may only use their cell phones during their free period and on their nights off.
Because a counselor’s influence is so great, Camp Skyline has a policy on counselor’s social networking sites (e.g. Myspace and Facebook). As part of our hiring process we will review every applicant’s social networking site. When looking at your site, we are looking from the perspective of a camper and a parent. We expect to see you reflected in a positive light.
Counselor orientation is typically the last week of May and is mandatory for all staff. Mandatory orientation for Summer 2013 is May 29 through June 5, 2013.
