Summer Counselors Needed

Circle F Dude Ranch Camp LLC, Lake Wales, is looking for summer counselors and heads of departments for this summer.  Circle F has been in continuous operations for the past 60 years with an exemplary reputation.

Our summer sessions start June 10th and end August 14th.  In addition, there is a one week training period which would require you to be here June 3rd or slightly earlier.  The starting salary for counselor is $2,300 for a 10-week (plus 4 days) contract.  Our counselors should be energetic, hard working with a positive attitude.  In short we would like them to ‘bring something to the table’ to enhance the campers’ experience here at Circle F.  Cabin counselors are the prime care givers for each camper and are responsible for the planning, teaching, coordinating and carrying out of activities and guiding campers in their personal growth and daily living skills during the summer.  Each counselor shares a cabin for 12 with another counselor and 10 campers.  The work week is 6 days and 24 hours a day.
