Would you like to be a Campower?
As a campower you will be part of the team, that looks after camp and keep it running on a day to day basis. You will be allocated to a particular campower role, so you may be responsible for feeding all the campers and staff as a kitchen staff or you could be part of the laundry, cleaning or maintenance crew fixing anything that breaks and keeping camp looking nice and clean (unfortunately we do NOT have computer or office work available). As a campower you will have separate accomodation to the counselors and campers and will get a higher pocket money, but you can still get involved with everything that camps has to offer and you can make the most of the camp facilities in your spare time
