Very good at “On the Job” learning

Hard workers

Independent & self-motivated

This means they must ask good questions, request help, support and frequent feedback. They must be good at acting immediately on feedback about their performance and are able to recognize characteristics of strong leadership and emulate immediately.

This means they can work for long periods of time, in the heat, in masks and remain positive. They hate to give up and frequently use positive statements to motivate both campers and fellow staff members. They must have learned stress management techniques to keep themselves focused and are motivated to learn more.

This means they have a good system or approach for themselves to help solve problems and pick best options.

A Rule Follower

Creative & Improviser

Exuberant & confident

This means they must be someone who respects rules and guidelines. They must be especially respectful of the rules and guidelines associated with the pandemic and understand that health and safety guidelines are put in place to protect our community.

This means they can make creative and spontaneous moments for campers on the spot – they know when things get boring and can quickly change and mix things up to make them more exciting – They like to ask the question: “What if we did it this way?”

This means they stand out and look/act differently with young people than they would with their peers. They can make things “bigger” and “broader” and “goofier” and “playful” with happiness that they are allowed to act this way and that this is part of their job! They love making big deals out little moments and in the world of masks….they can take their usual facial expressions and body language and make this somewhat exaggerated to really get through to people.
