Employment Guide

Staff Application


JR Counselors

For teens completing 9th, 10th and 11th Grade


What makes a Great Summer Camp Staff?

Commitment: an unwavering drive to always be your best at everything you do.

Leadership: Not only in word but in action and character

Empathy: understanding, compassion and the ability to handle sensitive situations with caring.

Intelligence: Able to problem solve and make good decisions

Adaptability: Improvisation, the ability to think and act quickly.

Experience: preferred, but not required

What will YOU get out of the Camp CABOGI experience?

Leadership training: This will be unlike any class you have ever taken. Having the opportunity to earn the respect and attention of a group of kids can not be taught by a book. We will be there to assist you along the way, but this will strengthen your natural abilities and provide you with a whole set of new ones!

Friendships: Not only with the campers, but with the fellow staff and even parents.

Youth Development Experience: put your skills to the test and see if you have what it takes to be a teacher, a child-care provider or a youth coach. Test yourselves!

A challenging and rewarding summer that you will never forget: Not only are you changing lives by helping these campers enjoy their summer to the fullest, they too are changing yours. You are testing yourself in ways you never thought about and are adapting to new emotional, physical and mental aspects of your personality and character.  Camp will help you find out, just how much you really know about you.



Calling all High School students, Camp CABOGI wants YOU!! Camp CABOGI's JR Counselor program is a VOLUNTEER program that instructs, develops and strengthens individuals in leadership training through assisting Counselors with daily group activities, planning and coordinating special events and leading campers through games and other activities. ALL weekly fees and field trip fees are waived.


Becoming a JR Counselor

JR Counselors at Camp CABOGI

The application process for a JR Counselor begins with filling out the staff application (its understood that you won't be able to fill in every detail, as your work experience is limited).

Upon receipt of the applications, an interview will be set-up. Each interview will last approximately 30 minutes. Questions will test your creativity, adaptability and spontaneity.

At the end of the interview you will be given a homework assignment to be returned before the start of camp. Based on your availability you will be assigned a minimum of 2 weeks at CABOGI.

Your expectations for performance on site at Camp CABOGI are detailed to the right, and to a greater extent in the Employment guide to the left.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email:



All JR Counselors, MUST be able to work a minimum 2 full weeks of our AWESOME summer day camp, Camp CABOGI.
