Former campers aged 17-18 who have completed their Journey Year (or who previously completed LIT 1 in 2022) are eligible to apply for a Junior Staff position at Camp. Junior Staff members attend one-week sessions at Camp where they will gain personal and professional skills through immersive experiences that will help prepare them for whatever their future holds, whether at Camp or beyond. Participants will learn firsthand through summer counselor mentorship how the magic of Camp is created, while also becoming the Magic creators themselves. Participants will receive a stipend and transportation costs to and from Camp will be covered.
I learned how much work goes into making camp such a magical place, but it was also one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. Knowing that younger campers could look up to me as an influence regardless of my illness was so powerful, and gave me the energy and motivation to dance around the dining hall or yell our unit’s cheers just a little louder.
