Staff Positions

C.I.T (Counselor in Training)

Our C.I.T. program is a transitional step from camper to counselor, as 16-17 year olds take on increasing responsibility and leadership training giving them the necessary skills and confidence to be leaders both at camp and outside of camp. The C.I.T.s participate in training, begin to lead activities, and plan camp wide projects.

Apply to be a C.I.T.

Junior Counselor

Junior Counselors take on a vital role at camp as they assist in teaching activities and managing cabin life, in addition to working cooperatively with fellow counselors while continuing to grow their leadership abilities and learning new mentorship skills. They participate in planning and carrying out events/activities, learn to lead independently, and begin to learn how to mentor others.

Senior Counselor

Senior Counselors are the backbone of the camp experience, leading activities and cabin life while offering mentorship to Junior Counselors and C.I.T.s. Their ability to lead, act independently, create and carry out long term plans, and problem solve make them essential members of the team.

Apply to be a Senior Counselor

Junior Director

Under the supervision of Director Staff, Junior Directors step up in responsibility as they help manage both counselors and entire activity areas of camp, plan and carry out training for counselor staff, and participate in executive decision making. This high level of leadership requires a great deal of independent decision making, autonomy, and trust.

TESTIMONIALS

Counselor Testimonial

I thought my job as a counselor would be to build relationships through deep conversations and a listening ear. While this isn’t wrong, the building blocks to get here are much smaller moments. It’s waiting for the girl that took an extra minute rolling out of bed in the morning, sharing easy laughs over lunch in the Hearth or taking the time to say goodnight to each girl and shut off the lights at the end of an exhausting day. These moments capture the loving and family-like feeling that a summer at Camp Jeanne d’arc inevitably provides. While singing campfire songs, diving into the lake or playing games on the field make JDA so lively and exciting, it is the girls building relationships, sharing stories and discovering new things about themselves that make their experience -and mine- so indescribably unique.
