Ceramics Teacher and Camp Counselor

Do you think you have what it takes to work at Pocono Springs Camp?

Experience the most rewarding summer of your life! Work and make friends with 100+ people from around the world AND have the opportunity to inspire kids every single day! At Pocono Springs, prepare yourself to get outdoors and step away from technology as you build real-life skills relatable to any future career ambitions!

We're looking for responsible, enthusiastic, and spirited individuals who can serve as role models, mentors, and coaches at camp for summer 2024.

The Pocono Springs Camp experience is 6 & 1/2 weeks long, with 10 days of orientation and 5 weeks of traditional summer camp. You will get the opportunity to contribute to making incredible memories, all while having the summer of a lifetime! We pride ourselves on our staff satisfaction. We welcome all feedback and make it a priority to provide support to our counselors, as well as a platform for you to bring your passion and creativity to camp! So get ready for the hardest job you'll ever love!

Our counselors work in teams of 3-4, living, eating, playing, dancing, singing, and supervising 7-12 campers throughout the summer. Along with their activity role, they keep close tabs on bunk cleanliness, campers' hygiene, and mealtime habits to ensure the health and happiness of the kids in their care for the 5 weeks. 

To be a successful cabin counselor, you must possess the following qualities: patience, fairness, playfulness, eagerness to participate, compassion, listening and communication skills, and a genuine desire to give the kids their best summer ever. Camp Counselors can have a profound impact on the campers they lead. It is a position that demands incredible responsibility and care, and you will be on call 24/7. But it will be one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have!

Our ceramics program is growing in size and popularity as our camp grows! We provide campers with the opportunity to create many pieces by hand building, pinch pots, and wheel throwing. Creativity and fun are the focus of the summer and we look for our campers to build anything from pots to tic-tac-toe boards during their time in ceramics. We welcome inventiveness and enthusiasm in our ceramics counselors and would be happy to take your ideas and run with them to help you best teach your styles to our campers!

Prior experience teaching, coaching, or working with children is a plus!

Dates June 16th - August 2nd

Salary starts at $2150 for the 6 & 1/2 week period and includes room and board, laundry services, staff shirts, training, camp-wide wifi, and the best experience!
