What is ETUSC?

We are looking for more enthusiastic people to join us at camp this year. There are many types of positions to be filled, look at a few job descriptions and see if there is something right for you. These are specific jobs but we also need general staff to fill in where needed during the week.

Camp Mentors - This position is the heart and soul of camp.  We are interested in finding people who are enthusiastic and passionate about guiding campers through their week.  You will be asked to hold two or more workshops as well as mentor a small group of campers each morning.  Must have First Aid and CPR/AED Certification, Bowman Adventures will pay for this training prior to camp if you do not already have it. This position is for ages 19 and up.

Late Night Mentors - Responsibilities are similar to that of the Mentors but include staying up at night with campers who would like to take advantage of late night activities and hanging out.  Must have First Aid and CPR/AED Certification, Bowman Adventures will pay for this training prior to camp if you do not already have it. This position is for ages 19 and up.

Kitchen Intern- If you are interested in helping with meals throughout the week. This is the most demanding job at camp and will require a firm dedication to the tasks assigned. Kitchen experience required.

Camp Medic - Will be responsible for the health and treatment of campers and staff. Will dispense medication as needed/prescribed and be the first medical responder in any health/emergency medical situation.  Must have experience working with youth.  Must have current First Aid and CPR/AED Certification as well as one of the following: RN, LPN, Nursing Graduate, Paramedic, EMT or WFR Certification.

Camp Maintenance - Responsibilities include wiping down tables and sweeping and mopping floors after meals and/or as needed. Emptying all trashcans on site. Making sure bathrooms are kept clean, plunging toilets as needed, etc. 

Junior Mentors  - This is an unpaid training position for 18-21 year olds who are interested in becoming Mentors. They will be shadowing and assisting an assigned Mentor for the week.

Parent Volunteers - You will be assigned to different tasks based on your interests and skills.  Most often needed for kitchen shifts. Volunteers receive lodging for the week at the Pathway Cabin located on the camp property as well as all their meals. And while you will be a big part of the behind the scenes action at ETUSC and around the grounds quite a bit, we ask that you give campers the space they need to have a full and autonomous camp experience.  Some kids don’t mind a parent in the background, but we feel it best to allow them their freedom and independence. This is important for all the campers and not just your own children.
