Responsibilities of Counselors at Slovenski Camps


Being a counselor at an overnight camp is a demanding job. Counselors will have very little time to themselves during the camp week, which runs from Saturday afternoon until the next Saturday morning. Counselors will be around kids all day. Do not apply for this job if you do not enjoy being around kids.

Counselors will take attendance for their cabin (8-12 campers) at every meal, cabin clean-up, rest hour, campfire, and bed time.

Meal Times

Counselors will sit with campers during meal times, spreading out in the dining hall to make sure that no group of campers is eating unsupervised. Counselors will leave the dining hall when the campers around them leave. Campers tend to eat quickly, so many counselors find their meals a little rushed compared to eating with adults.

Reporting for Duty

Counselors will report to Rocky, Coach, Tarzan, or the head counselor for duty whenever they are unsure of what they should be doing. Most work will involve leading activities, coaching, or supervising free-time. Some of the work will be manual labor, such as raking or carrying lumber.


All counselors who are strong swimmers will take our life guard certification course. Lifeguards need to bring their own polarized sunglasses and swim goggles with them to camp.

Night Responsibilities

Counselors will be on bed-time duty every other night during the camp week. This means coaching the campers into bed, reading aloud for 15-20 minutes, and then remaining in the cabin until breakfast. Counselors not on night duty are still required to help with bed time in the cabin, but may leave once the on-duty counselors begins reading.

Time Off

Counselors will receive 36 hours off during a normal work week. The time will depend on the camp and schedule, and may not be the same every week
