Dear Prospective Applicant,
We look for self-motivated people with personality, character, maturity, charisma, and, most importantly, a sincere desire to be a positive role model for children. Staff members bring energy and excitement to a program of challenging and creative activities for youth and teens. In the role of camp counselor you will be developing and demonstrating values such as honesty, caring, respect, responsibility and leadership – characteristics that are highly regarded by future employers.
This work is demanding of your time, energy and emotions, and it requires a great deal of self-motivation, patience and creativity. It takes the kind of person who can have a positive attitude, anywhere at any time. This job, without question, will be one of most challenging positions you will ever hold. It is essentially a 24-hour-a-day job full of laughter and sometimes tears. The family spirit that develops among the staff is literally amazing. Leaving at the end of the summer if often an emotional time for the people who made it their summer home.
Camp Al-Gon-Quian is a special place, not only for the children that attend, but the staff as well. If you think that you would like to be a part of the Al-Gon-Quian family, I can assure you that it will be one of the most satisfying experiences in your life.
Applications for Summer 2013 are available online (below) and at the Ann Arbor YMCA front desk. Please read all materials carefully as you prepare your application, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
Director, YMCA Camp Al-Gon-Quian
