Summer Camp Counselor

Knoxville, United States

Part-time Contract

$8-10 / hour (or optionally class credits)

Axis Academy offers weekly summer camps in 1/2 and full day formats.

As a camp counselor, your primary responsibility will be to assist campers as needed with following instructions and completing the tasks scheduled for each day. 

This position can both fun and demanding as the ability levels of each camper can vary greatly.  We expect you to help each camper achieve a "get it done" and "I did it!" spirit. To be successful, you will have a caring attitude and good problem-solving skills.

Week-long camps are generally open 8am-12pm and 12:30-4:30 (times may change slightly)

While we don't know exactly when, once our camps reach the minimum capacity, we will be contacting you to confirm an assigned week.  Up to 8 weeks are available.
