BYU Sports Camp Summer Counselor Information

Sports Camps Counselor positions have been filled for the summer of 2014.  However, we are looking for male counselors to work a SINGLE WEEK this summer (JUNE 9-13).  If you are interested in working this week, please email derek.hansen@byu.edu and submit an online application (link below).

Job Description

Counselors have the opportunity to work with youth from all over the country and have a positive effect on their lives. We are looking for individuals who are sociable, responsible, and like to work with youth. No athletic experience is required, as Counselors interact with the participants when they are not at their sports practices. The Counselor position is not a coaching position.

Before applying, please read the following general information.

Counselor Duties

As a Counselor, you will help out during Monday morning registration (times will vary according to your specific camp). For each week that you work, you will be assigned a group of participants with whom you will supervise and interact during the evening activities. Evening activities include ice cream parties, dances, trips to Seven Peaks, movie nights, talent shows, and field games. You will also hold a nightly devotional with your participants and conduct a head count each morning and evening. Dependable and accountable Counselors are a key to the success of these activities.
