Camp Blue Ridge – Camp Counselor Application

Hi – So you’re thinking of joining our camp FAMILY ???

A Camp Blue Ridge staff member needs to be an “activity oriented” individual, willing to work for the needs of the children. Staff members receive weekly days off, nights off and a  competitive salary. Our program facilities are exemplary and our living quarters are very comfortable  – we even have air-conditioned cabins + WI-FI. SO much to do on your days and nights off as well, since we are in a very big tourist area. Ask about our internship program for college and university credit with salary.

Activity counselors can choose from our long list of activities offered at Camp Blue Ridge and see where their areas of expertise lie.

Our medical staff of RN’s, LPN’s and LNP’s  help our campers stay healthy during their time at camp as well as distribute any medication they may need.

Support staff work in our kitchen/dining hall and laundry facilities. We also have maintenance positions available as well.

Camp Blue RIdge’s priority in caring for other people’s children is to return them at the end of each day or at the end of the season with only happy memories. As the owners/directors of this program, we accept full responsibility for doing everything possible to ensure that my camp has selected appropriate staff with only healthy intentions.The 21st Century has taught us that too many inappropriate adults continue their efforts to get close to children at congregate care programs, including camps. Understand that no one is given a “pass” and permitted to work here, simply because they happen to be:

  • Family members including children
  • Old and valued friends
  • Clergy
  • Former Camp Directors
  • Friends or family members of the board of directors
  • Previous staff who have demonstrated questionable behaviors with campers
If your life includes any of the nine statements below, please consider employment elsewhere that does not include work with children.
  • Criminal record involving children
  • History of any violent behaviors
  • Ever listed in an abuse registry
  • Suicide attempts or ideation
  • Drug addiction at any age
  • Domestic violence
  • Fired from any congregate care work
  • Watches child pornography
  • Internet contacts with children without parental permission

  • What would you do if you witnessed your best friend abuse a child at camp?
  • How do you feel about a 19-year-old counselor who has had sex with a 15-year-old camper who was consenting?
