Bunk Counselors, referred to as "General Counselors," will live in a bunk with 6-10 campers and at least one co-counselor. Throughout each day, counselors will travel to and from activities with their campers and actively engage and participate with them during activity periods. Our bunk counselors spend the majority of their time with our children and are asked to monitor cleanliness in the bunk, hygiene of campers, eating habits during meal times and genuinely spend time getting to know each individual camper.
Specialists will also live in a bunk with one or two other co-counselors but will spend their days away from the bunk and at a specialized activity area. Most importantly, our specialists resume the role of a bunk counselor at times when they are away from their specialized area. Specialists at Camps Equinunk and Blue Ridge typically have 3-5 + years of experience teaching or instructing their particular area of expertise. We also strongly look towards individuals with the proper certifications.
Support Staff assist with the overall operation in a variety of areas. Positions range from office, medical, and culinary staff, to housekeeping and security. Our Support Staff is the "behind the scenes team" comprised of different areas that keep our summer camps up and running, safe and healthy, clean and tidy and of course, well fed!
