YSC Staff Members Counselors and Lifeguards/Swim Instructors
Become a Staff Member
The majority of the YSC staff members (coordinators, counselors, and swim instructors) are students at CSU. We also hire coaches and teachers who have a passion for summer camps. We receive hundreds of applications every summer, so we are very selective about whom we hire to work with the campers. Counselors are selected for their teaching and coaching skills, sports knowledge, passion, and desire to make a difference in the lives of the campers. We truly believe that our staff is amazing and that we have the best people possible. Our staff members care about your children – take a minute and get to know us. We’re here to help!
To provide an opportunity for older campers to gain experience in camp management, while providing younger campers with positive role models.
Our Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program is available for individuals turning 14 years old during that calendar year, through age 17. CIT’s must have sport experience and must be effective communicators. Preference is given to individuals who have previously participated in the CSU Youth Sport Camps.
This program allows experienced campers to spend their day working with younger campers in order to foster a sense of responsibility and leadership. CIT’s may be involved with daily planning and supervision of camp and will gain experience with organization management. CIT’s also receive the same benefits and activities of campers (swimming, instruction, field trips, etc.) CIT experiences may count for community service for school credits. Contact your school for more information on this opportunity.
There is a maximum of two CIT’s per camp session. CITs must be available at least four days per week of the camp session to which they have been assigned.
$50 per week
