Jobs at Camp

We strive to maintain the standards of a traditional brother and sister camp. This means that the level of competition is adjusted to the skill level and experience of the campers. Children with little or no athletic ability are given equal opportunities to excel at their own level. As a result there is also a diversity of teaching intensity – advanced methods for the more serious athlete, and the basics gently delivered for the beginner.

Forest and Indian Acres are traditional camps, which means there is a fair amount of structure and demand on the staff to be attentive and conscientious. The work is sometimes hard, but hardly burdensome. For people who love children, it’s always a rewarding effort.

In a word, we’re about children – kids and teens – making sure they are safe, healthy, and happy while they spend a summer at fun, play, and self-development. Of course they learn about sports, arts and campcraft. They also learn to live together with other children and adults, to respect not only their own needs, but the needs of others and how to improve personally, while they improve their relations with others. They learn how to have fun and experience high achievement, and how to use their skills at communications and to be part of a group. Finally, they learn the value of friendship and how to form lasting relationships.
