About the job
Description of Camp Ramapo
Based on our 250-acre campus in Rhinebeck, New York, Camp Ramapo is Ramapo for Children’s residential summer camp that serves young people with a diverse set of needs and abilities. Some of our campers are on the Autism Spectrum, while others require greater support due to trauma, stress, or other disabilities. We believe ALL young people want the same things: to learn, to feel valued, and to experience success.
As a Ramapo staff member, you will develop the skills you need to succeed with a broad range of young people. You will learn to understand behavior as communication. You will emerge with a heightened ability to meet your campers’ needs and to teach them new skills. You will learn how to create environments that celebrate strengths and enable all young people to feel a sense of belonging. You will work hard every day you are here, and learn more than you ever thought possible.
As a Camp Ramapo counselor, you’ll benefit from:
Intensive, evidence-informed training on our Ramapo Approach, a culmination of a century of experience in direct service and training programs
Hands-on experience in creating inclusive environments, adapting to individual needs, and de-escalating behavior with neurodiverse youth
