  • Summer Jobs for College Students

    Senior Counselors

    SCs are the young adults who are "in charge" of the various cabin/age groups. Each and every one has completed at least a full year of college although most have gone well beyond that. In fact, the vast majority of our SCs have grown up at PCDC, attended as campers, and have moved up through the various phases of our staff groups. Each is committed to working with children, are fun-loving by nature, and are the impressive role models you would want your child to spend their days at camp with.

  • Summer Jobs for High School Students

    Junior Counselors | Age: 16-18

    JCs are 16- to 18-years-old, are experts on camp policy, and know where everything is located on the campus as if it were their own backyard. The JC is "second in command" in all cabin groups. The JC is a vital member of the cabin staff. Most of our junior counselors come to us through our CIT program.  It is those vital years that we get to meet and learn about our future staff.


  • Summer Volunteer Programs for High School Students

     
    Counselor Aides | Age: 14

    Counselor Aides are 14-years-olds in the PCDC counselor training program. They are volunteer helpers, assisting in cabins and specialty areas with the guidance of CITs and staff members. Our Counselor Aid campers learn the safety and policies to become a CIT next summer and a future staff member.

    Counselors-In-Training | Ages: 15-16

    CITs are 15 and 16-years-olds who have completed at least one year of high school. These teens are participating in our one or two season learning program. They are volunteer helpers, assisting in cabin and specialty areas, where older and seasoned staff guide them through the many policies that make PCDC the happy and safe place it is.
     
    CAMPER-IN-SERVICE

    The members of the relatively small CIS staff come to us as half-campers and half pre-counselors and each is exclusively thirteen-years-old. They are seen around campus dispensing our morning and afternoon snacks, helping out in some specialty areas, assisting in cabins, delivering messages, and maybe give a camp tour or two (when they are totally knowledgeable about PCDC). When CISs are not "working", they are participating in some of the exciting activities that are usually enjoyed by our oldest campers.
