Before you even think about really applying at Camp Southern Ground please read these points:
1) We are inclusive!
As an inclusive camp our camper population is made up of typically developing kids, kids with neurodevelopmental challenges such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, kids from military families and kids from underserved communities. You will work with kids who are very different to you, and some of them will be very challenging and require a lot of patience and love.
2) We expect a lot
Working at CSG requires you to put yourself second and the kids first. You will be dirty, sweaty, tired, and stressed everyday - but we will expect you to push through with a smile! We're here for the kids.
3) You will change lives - including yours!
Working at CSG means helping a child to make their first friend, to be away from home for the first time, or to try something they have never done before. The kids you work with will adore you and you will be their hero. If you are ready to take on the hardest job you'll ever love, start your application below!
