Ramapo Country Day Camp

Description

We are a children's summer day camp offering opportunities for college students to work with children. Camper ages range from 3 to 13 (Nursery to Eighth Grades). Counselors work in teams of two, three or four and travel with a specific group of campers from activity to activity. They participate in every activity assisting our teachers (specialists) who run them. Most campers are at Ramapo for the full camp season (39 days).Ideal for Education, Psychology, Sociology, and Recreation majors. Gain experience working with a set age group. Our "internship" will give you the people skills and problem solving skill all employers are looking for. If you can handle a group of kids you can handle any board room or court room. All majors welcome.
