Note to Parents: 

We are encouraging the mentors to step out of their comfort zone and work in an area where they may feel less confident – with our support. Please allow your child to complete form on their own – it is important for them to do it independently. During camp, we check in regularly to see if they are comfortable or need/want to change rolls.

MENTOR ROLE 

Mentors will not be participating in camp, as a “camper”, but will provide help with activities and support for younger children, and act as a role model for the campers.

*There are a limited number of Mentor positions. Preference will go to teens who have been campers over the years.

*Preference will also go to Mentors complete applications listing creative suggestions, ideas, or activities that they would like to share with campers. Maybe teaching a lesson (“How to do ____”), sharing a hobby they enjoy, teaching a new game, sharing a favorite book or music (appropriate for children).

INTERVIEWS

Those who apply to be a MENTOR will be contacted to come for an interview with Julie in late March.  If selected into the program, I'll do my best to get you in the week or two you request. (I’ll guide you through this, and promise it won’t be scary. I just want you to have the opportunity to experience a job interview.)

MENTOR MEETING

Those who are selected to become a MENTOR we will be required to attend a leadership meeting prior to the start of camp. This is held one day after school, during the 1st or 2nd week in June.

STIPEND

Upon successful mentor week, mentors will be giving a letter of recommendation (to use for future jobs, scholarships, etc.) and a $25 gift card.
