The redesigned 2020 Junior Counselor (J.C.) Leadership Camp is a program that creates and fosters leadership through hands-on experience at our East Avenue Camps. Any teen with a strong desire to work with children is encouraged to sign up. A successful J.C. is generally enthusiastic, dedicated, and devoted to providing our younger participants with a memorable experience.
Mandatory in-service training week will be held from June 10th – June 12th from 4-7pm at East Avenue Park. During this week, J.C.’s will become versed in behavior management, the developmental characteristics of children, and how to deal with challenging scenarios. In addition to these skills, we will be reviewing the following modules of leadership and job preparedness:
• Customer Service Skills
• Safety Protocols
• Public Speaking
• Interview Prep
By the end of the summer, our goal is for participants to feel more confident in themselves, their leadership style, and be able to successfully prepare for the workforce.
J.C.’s who participated in the 2019 Summer will receive priority registration for Summer 2020 beginning February 3rd-February 10th. General registration for residents will begin on Wednesday, February 12th.
Registration is now on a first come, first serve basis and participants will not be required to submit an application or interview. For program dates and fees, please visit our Recreation Guide.
