Job descriptions for all Camp Echo seasonal jobs are listed below. All Camp Echo staff are also expected to conduct themselves according to the essential functions.
Below are some important details about the Junior Staff role on the Camp Echo staff.
Junior Staff is a support staff position.
Junior Staff (J-Staff) support camp in various roles including kitchen, child care, barn, and maintenance. J-Staff are required to work two consecutive sessions of camp in a cohort with other J-Staff. J-Staff will receive training and rotate through assigned work in each support area during their first session and will have the opportunity to specialize in one area during their second session.
J-Staff are supported and coached by the Junior Staff Unit Leader. Since they are under 18, Junior Staff are not eligible to supervise campers. This is not a counselor role.
The applicant must complete the staff application and select Junior Staff.
The staff application must be completed through the applicants’ CampInTouch account, not using their parent/guardian’s login info. The staff application is now live!
Junior Staff is a paid staff position.
Our pay scale for summer 2021 is available online now. Junior staff are paid $204/week.
Application and Hiring Process
This is an exciting first step to joining the Echo summer staff team! Our goal is to provide opportunities for all interested Junior Staff applicants. The biggest hiring factor is typically the time commitment of two sessions (1&2, 3&4, 5&6).
We plan to host virtual group interviews in late February and mid-March. As minors, there will be some paperwork that must be completed by parents/guardians.
All Camp Echo staff are expected to be CPR/First Aid certified, and many staff are also lifeguards. While Camp Echo does not plan to offer these certifications, we will communicate opportunities for courses with staff.
