South Texas ISD and UTRGV P-16 Outreach would like to invite you to apply for a role as a junior camp counselor for this summer’s STPA STEM Camp 2018. A junior camp counselor’s main purpose is to interact with students and participate in activities that are designed to increase the academic success of the camp participants.

The camp is a one-week, academic, residential camp that emphasizes increasing students’ mathematics and science skills while introducing them to college life and stimulating their interest in science and engineering as a potential career path. The dates for this summer’s camp are Sunday, July 29 to Friday, August 3rd.

Junior camp counselors will work with senior camp counselors and camp staff to supervise rising 7th grade students for the camp’s duration. Duties will include the following:

• Attend junior camp counselor mandatory trainings and meetings;
• Supervise students during meals, breaks and various activities;
• Make announcements concerning any changes to schedules;
• Assist monitoring students’ behavior and report any issues to the camp coordinator;
• Support and uphold established policies and procedures, including safety rules and student rules;
• Serve as a positive role model, mentor and tutor for campers;
• Adapt to a flexible weekend schedule and availability; and
• Perform other duties as assigned.

Junior camp counselors will have the option to stay on or off campus for the duration of the camp. Junior camp counselors will receive free housing on campus, free meals and a stipend from STISD as compensation for the trainings, activities and duties completed before and during the camp.

If you are interested in becoming a junior camp counselor, please submit the completed application packet to STPA at 724 S. Sugar Rd. Edinburg TX 78539.
