There are various jobs available at A.L.P.S. during the summer. Please read through the following descriptions, and if you are interested in working for us fill out our online application or contact us for further information. We are especially interested in staff members who are able to speak Russian, Chinese or Arabic. We look forward to hearing from you!
All of the counselors at A.L.P.S. work in a dual role — both as a bunk counselor living with and supporting kids, and as a specialty counselor teaching in a specific program area. Counselor applicants must have completed at least one year of university. We are looking for people who are caring, patient, fun-loving, energetic, and who truly love working with children. As a counselor you will be sleeping in a dormitory with campers. You will help supervise them during meals, rest hours, during evening activities, on trips and during special events. At the same time, we are looking for people who are skilled and experienced in one (or more) of our many program areas. You will be teaching scheduled classes during the daytime, to campers of all ages and varying levels of experience, in the area(s) where you have experience. Applicants must have strong knowledge and skills in their specialty area and must have relevant experience teaching/coaching children. Being a counselor is an extremely rewarding, and at the same time challenging, position at camp. Your days will be long and tiring, and at the same time you will form close bonds with all the campers at A.L.P.S. while having an experience that you will never forget!
