 Special Needs Camp Counselor
Camp Holiday Trails, Charlottesville, VA is looking for committed and enthusiastic individuals for paid counselor positions for our summer residential camp sessions that run from mid-June through late July or early August (end of Summer dates flexible). The experience of working at CHT provides counselors with a challenging, enlightening, and, most of all, FUN introduction to working with children with special medical needs in a supportive and caring work environment. There is no more unique and memorable summer experience than what you'll find at camp, and for students interested in the health professions, there is no greater learning opportunity than what one can gain from caring for our amazing Campers. Join them if you're ready to make a difference in the lives of some incredible kids!
