In order for some of our Senior Staff to serve at Camp PARC, they must bring their children with them to enjoy the experience. Childcare Counselors are needed to care for these children so that their parents can uphold their responsibilities as Senior Staff. Childcare Counselors are broken into two groups, depending on the age of the child(ren) for which they are caring:
School Age Child Care
These counselors must have completed 6th grade. They are responsible for caring for staff children, ages preschool through 4th grade, during ALL camp activities and assist with their care during mealtimes and bath/bedtimes. This requires 24-hour quality care throughout the entire camping session.
These childcare counselors must have prior babysitting experience, especially with the needs of babies and toddlers. They will provide 24-hour care for an infant/toddler up to 3 years of age and participate in as many Camp activities as is possible for the age of the child. It requires patience, understanding, enthusiasm and stamina to take on this very difficult task of caring for very young children.
If you are interested in participating at Camp PARC 2017 as a Child Care Counselor, please fill out the 2017 Staff Volunteer Application and one of the camp directors will be in touch with you. Should you have any further questions about being a Childcare Counselor, please contact our Camp Director or call 814-410-5343.
