  • Cabin Counselor
  • Teen Session Counselor/Trip Leader
  • Kitchen Staff
  • Helpers
  • Internships
each of the above would like to a unique page. do we really do internships? should “teen session counselor” be re-identified as “trip leader”? – I’d rather not have unique pages, but click-jumps (is that a thing? Where you click on a menu at the top, and it jumps down to that thing on the page?). I think (I might be making this up) that sometimes college kids HAVE to do an internship, and we’re just saying we can classify their employment as such…? We could, I’d guess, change it to “Paid Internships”. YES, we should change Teen Session Counselor to Teen Trip Leader.Molly Yeah, using those sorts of jumps would be a good thing to try. Maybe Vicki can show us how. re: internships – ok, that makes sense. It might help us get staff. I agree about calling it a paid internship. — sara

Camp Woodbrooke is a very small camp with at most 34 campers, 10 cabin counselors, and 2 teen trip counselors. Cabin counselors live in rustic, open-sided cabins with up to six campers and one other counselor or helper. At Camp Woodbrooke everyone participates in the day-to-day life of the camp helping with food preparation, clean up, gardening, care of pets and cleaning the cabins and washhouses so counselors must be ready to participate in each of these areas. In addition, it is hoped that each counselor has special skills in some of the following areas: arts and crafts, woodworking, cooking, camp craft, nature, skits, group games, swim instruction, gardening, life guard, overnight tenting, music and archery. See Note 3 below for special salary bonuses.
