Frequently Asked Questions about being a CTB-CO camp counselor 

Where is Camp To Belong Colorado held?
We are very fortunate to be hosted by the YMCA Camp Santa Maria in Grant, Colorado. http://ymcacampsantamaria.org/
 
What are the camp dates for this year?
           2016 June camp dates are coming soon!
Counselor training: Saturday 5/30/15 1 PM – Monday 6/1/15 AM
Campers arrive Monday 6/1/15 3 PM – Depart Saturday 6/6/15 10 AM
Counselors depart Saturday 6/6/15 2 PM
 
Who is a "typical" CTB camp counselor?
The staff of CTB is made up of volunteer counselors from around the state, the U.S. and beyond. Each counselor goes through an application, interview, screening process/background checks. While some of our past counselors have been social workers, we also have counselors who work as nurses, doctors, teachers, computer programmers, postal workers, CASA's, etc. Our goal is to attract a diverse group of people who are kind, caring, responsible, committed to children/youth, understand the importance of the sibling connection, willing to jump in the trenches and like to have fun. Our camp counselors range in age from 21 - 70+. 
 
Do I have to have experience as a camp counselor? Do I need experience working with kids?

No. We look for folks who are caring, nurturing, energetic, positive, open-minded, and enjoy being part of a team. The most important qualification is that our staff enjoys working with children and youth of all ages. We also want our campers to have exposure to folks who work in various fields. 

If I become a counselor, do I have to be at camp the entire week?
Yes. Those who are accepted as counselors (after the application, interview and screening process) are required to commit to the entire week plus the 2 days of training. (See dates above)
