Junior Counselor Level I & Junior Counselor Level 2 Programs

Application Deadline: May 8, 2014

The Everglades Youth Conservation Camp located in the J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area, approximately 20 miles west of West Palm Beach, invites you to participate in our Junior Counselor Leadership Program.

Since 1998 we have offered a leadership program for youth ages 15โ€“17 years. The goal of the program is to prepare youth for future staff positions at the camp.

Junior counselors must be available to work the entire two week JC session, from Sunday through Friday for each week of their experience. Junior Counselors are not permitted to stay at camp over the weekend period. Duties for camp begin at 1:30pm on Sunday and end at 3:00 pm on Friday. Junior Counselors are supervised by the Junior Counselor Supervisor dedicated specifically to this group.

Tuition for both JC programs is $250 for the two week session. Participants must select one of the two week sessions. Hours worked during each week are recorded as community service (40 hours per week). Payment is made on the first Sunday of your session. Checks will be made payable to EYCC.

DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY with the registration form.

Junior Counselor Level 1

In addition, participants will be assigned to do various work related activities including assisting in the kitchen, dining hall, restrooms, and general grounds clean-up.

Junior Counselor Level 2

The second year of the program focuses on preparing the participants for the skills they will need as future staff members for the camp, such as how to be an effective teacher and leader.
