Bright Horizons Camp Counselor in Brooklyn, New York
We’re the people who pioneered self-directed summer camps while introducing the most flexible and fair attendance system in the industry, way back in 1980. At Steve & Kate’s, kids decide what to do and where they do it, giving them the confidence to risk, fail, rise, and develop a deep trust in their instincts and capabilities. We are now a part of the Bright Horizons Family.
Steve & Kate’s Summer Camp is an 8 to 10 week program, running from June to August. Our full-time staff work Monday through Friday with shifts between the hours of 8 AM and 6 PM. Part-time training for certain positions may begin in May.
At Steve & Kate's, we put kids in the driver’s seat, and counselors come along for the ride. Campers choose minute-to-minute how to spend their time because making decisions today helps to build the self-confidence they’ll need to wrangle unknowns tomorrow. As a Steve & Kate’s staff member, you’ll sharpen your inherent leadership skills and do meaningful work, all while immersing yourself in creativity and play.
Staff members will be responsible for facilitating activities, making connections, and monitoring for safety and wellness. The structure at our camps will depend on local COVID regulations, so staff at some locations will lead cohorts of campers while others will be stationed at activities as campers choose where they would like to spend time. The best way to find out what your specific responsibilities would be is to speak with your local director, but activities include a bakery, sewing, stop-motion animation, maker space, sports, inflatables, and so much more!
