Summer Camp Positions, Camp Homeward Bound

Coalition for the Homeless seeks seasonal counselors and supervisors for its Camp Homeward Bound program located in Harriman State Park. Started in 1984, the Homeward Bound program was the first camp in the nation created specifically to serve homeless children. Camp Homeward Bound provides a safe, predictable, and highly structured environment for homeless youngsters (ages seven to fifteen). We foster the development of positive social and learning skills and is scheduled for three sessions each summer.

At Camp Homeward Bound camp staff receive pre-camp training, ongoing support, and mentoring throughout the summer. Counselors and supervisors develop problem solving and leadership skills that future employers may find valuable. Camp staff aim to positively influence a group of young people in need of strong positive role models. They look forward to meeting new people around the world, forming lasting friendships, and working with a team of dedicated individuals seeking to make a difference in the lives of young people.
