The Generalist Counselor is a fluid role that includes working with various age groups and activity areas. Generalists provide support and coverage to cabins to supplement the care of their cabin counselors. In this capacity, they help campers adjust to camp life, develop community with their cabin mates, navigate the daily schedule, and develop the skills to be successful anywhere. Generalist Counselors are responsible for preparing and facilitating activities, particularly Field Sports, and keeping activity equipment and areas safe and well-maintained. Ideal candidates will have previous experience working with children in group settings, interest in wearing many different hats at camp, and be self directed and eager to jump in where needed.
