We provide limited assistance. Counselors are expected to coordinate their travel with the Staffing Coordinator. Travel should be to the nearest bus stop (Schroon Lake, NY), train station (Ticonderoga, NY on Amtrak’s Empire Line), or airports (ALB/Albany International, NY) and (BVT/Burlington International, VT). Staff may bring their own cars to Camp and park them at the top of the hill.
Similar to campers, Adirondack counselors wear a grey staff shirt and khaki shorts or pants from Retreat (formal flag-lowering ceremony before dinner) through dinner to the end of the evening. All Staff are expected to wear attire and footwear that is appropriate for activity and occasion at camp.
Counselors get one full day and night off during the week. The Staff Room has internet and is available during time off.
Most staff will live in cabins with campers.
Counselors are responsible for the well-being and safety of all campers twenty-four hours a day, even during non-teaching activity times in Camp.
Paychecks are distributed four times during the season including a final one upon successful completion of contract terms.
