Jobs & Responsibilities

Cabin Counselor

Cabin Counselors at Camp Southern Ground are the Magic-Makers, the leaders and teachers who bring the culture of unlimited possibility to life every day at Camp! Cabin Counselors help campers of all abilities, ages 7-17, connect to the joy of making friends, growing their personal gifts, and building a strong community of kindness within the cabin they lead. Enthusiasm, patience, and a strong sense of playfulness are key strengths for all Cabin Counselors. Experience is a plus, but a strong desire to learn and grow as a person is a must.

As a Program Counselor at Camp Southern Ground, you will play a crucial role in creating a safe and memorable camp experience for children of all abilities. You will spend your nights and downtime in cabins, serving as a second level of support to counselors, and during the day, you will lead and facilitate activities in one of our designated program areas, such as Archery, Biking, Lifeguards, Arts and Crafts, or Music. This position offers a unique opportunity to inspire and mentor campers while gaining valuable experience in outdoor education and recreational programming.

Inclusion and Accommodations Counselor

Inclusion and Accommodations Counselors (IAC) work closely with our Inclusion and Admissions Manager to help all campers find success and personal growth at Camp Southern Ground. IACs develop and implement appropriate behavioral management strategies, accommodations, and interventions in order to create the most inclusive environment possible. Each IAC will provide guidance and support to their fellow camp staff as it relates to working with our neurodiverse population. IACs will also blend into the daily cabin life and offer support to Cabin Counselors in creating and maintaining a culture of friendship, curiosity, and mutual support. IACs must be working towards, or currently possess, a college degree focused on either Special Education or a related field. Applicants must have significant experience working with children, both typically developing and neurodiverse.

Your work will offer a window into the CSG experience that will help parents feel safer knowing that their child is having the time of their life, and you will also bring the spirit of CSG to the world beyond our gates by capturing Magic Moments that will inspire others to support our cause. Come build your professional portfolio capturing photos and videos of the “Happiest Place on Earth!”
