Junior Counselors assist each counselor in leading a group of 16 children of the same sex and age. These 16 campers remain together for the full session and you will be "their JC". This continuity allows you to learn and address the strengths and weaknesses of each child and helps build those strong social bonds that will make camp so memorable for your campers.
Blach Middle School in Los Altos (Directions)
Session One: June 13 - July 8 (4 weeks)
Session Two: July 11 - August 5 (4 weeks)
JCs may work only one session. Please note your preference on the application.

Must have completed sophomore year in high school (*Exception: A former camper who was also a JCIT may apply after completing his/her freshman year.). Should be extremely responsible, athletic, be passionate and knowledgeable about sports, be a very good student, play on at least one school or club team, and love to work and play with children ages 6-12.
No experience necessary, but experience coaching/assisting with a youth sports team, after school sports program, or at any summer camp is a big plus.
Various extra jobs (Beach BBQ, Extended Care, setup, end-of-session cleanup, etc.) are offered over the course of the summer which provide an opportunity for junior counselors to earn additional income.
If hired you will be required to attend our weekend training sessions. Training for all new staff = Saturday June 11 for 7 hours
All-Staff meeting = Sunday June 12 for 4 hours.
We will contact promising applicants approximately one week after the March 15th application deadline to arrange for a 10-20 minute interview. Interviews tentatively scheduled for the weekends of March 26-27 and April 9-10. Interviews are held in Los Altos.
