What We Look for in a Counselor

The staff who are selected to work and volunteer (yes, even our volunteers are selected!) at Camp Swamp are people who have exemplary character. They are fun-loving, high energy, creative people who like working with children in an outdoor setting. They are spiritually-minded and are able to share with children their appreciation for God. In short, they like to play hard and work hard with all types of children. The bulk of our staff is college students. Although this might seem young to some, we find that their energy level is contagious. Young counselors make great heroes to the kids. Our staff is comprised of people we trust to influence our own children, so you can be assured that we feel confident in their ability to take care of your child. In addition, our staff is reliable, honest, and they are people with high principles for themselves. They are tremendous servants and live by a set of standards that ensure the safety of every member of camp. Anyone applying to be a Counselor is required to submit an application of health, obtain a letter of recommendation, complete a Swamp Values paragraph, and pass a third-party background check.
