Male Counselors at Residential Summer Camp

Description: Ramapo for Children offers a valuable and highly unique summer job experience through one of our programs: Camp Ramapo. Ramapo runs one of the few residential summer camps that specifically serves children with social, emotional, and learning challenges. Ramapo is actively looking to recruit young men to work on our summer staff. The prevalence of special needs is significantly higher in males than females: males are four times more likely to be diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder and ten times more likely to be diagnosed with an emotional disturbance. The boys and young men in our program need role models, and we are reaching out to you for help. Camp Ramapo has a one-to-one staff-to-camper ratio that not only helps children who need more supervision and support, but also provides staff members with the intensive, hands-on experience that they need to grow personally and professionally. Staff members receive the same state-of-the-art training that we provide to teachers and other youth-service professionals already working in the field. This training equips them with practical techniques to build positive relationships, create supportive environments for children with special needs, and grow to become leaders in the field. In addition, students can gain up to 6 hours of college course credit by taking Ramapo's on-site college course through the National College Credit Recommendation Service. On their transcript, the course will be listed through Excelsior College of the University of the State of New York and can be credited as: Education, Special Education, Educational Psychology, Therapeutic Recreation, Group Dynamics, Outdoor Recreation, Physical Education, Recreation, Camp Counseling, or Community Service.
