Applying to become a counselor for summer 2010

Postby iocaste90 » Mon Jan 11, 2010 4:11 am

Hey guys- I'll be applying this spring to become a camp counselor and RA this summer. This is something that I've always wanted to do. Do you have any tips on what I can do to enhance my application/ increase my chances of being accepted as a counselor for summer 2010?

Main thing i can say is be honest don't over exaggerate your strengths because the job will bring it out. I will say this if you are an alumni make sure that's known because Alumni get higher priority in hiring in general. Come summer there is also a chance they may only hire Aviation Challenge and not space camp. Most years they seem to hire both but it depends on how many counselors they have left over from the earlier hiring. If offered an AC job don't dismiss the possibility its different than space camp but still a great place to work.

You need to contact Human Resources IMMEDIATELY!!!! Training began today for Spring 2010's new counselors. Depending on how many complete training and how many stay on for the summer will determine if another group will be hired and trained.

Hiring for the spring counselors begins in late November. Always check our website for notices of hiring.

If you are interested in a summer position I would recommend having your application and packet in by Feb. 1st. All the information is at www.spacecamp.com/counselors. We currently do not have any spring positions open.

I hate to contradict CRS, but it was announced that there will be another training in March for Level 3 (open availability) counselors. Training will be 10-30 March and 20 people will be hired to train.

Training in May (25- June 5) will be for new space staff, new AC staff, and cross training space staff at AC. Get your applications in now!
