BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: Crystalaire Adventures is an adventure travel and education program in northern Michigan. We believe in offering playful, inclusive outdoor experiences in wild places that offer meaningful experiences. We are part of a larger coalition of programs that focus on designing fun and engaging social networks that let participants define and dictate the experience that they have. Rather than filling our trips with adult-developed programming, our participants get to help co-lead and create the experience on every trip.

CAMP LOCATION: We operate out of Camp Lookout, alongside the Lake Michigan shoreline in Frankfort south of the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Our trips take place around the country and region, into the Upper Peninsula, and even into Canada.

CAMP FACILITIES: Our philosophy is based around designing inclusive social groups that allow for participants to express themselves and have a say in the experience. Participants will set the schedule, control the route, and are given the freedom to develop their own games and activities while on our programs.

Participants will sleep in tents (excepting sailing programs, where accommodations are typically on the boats themselves). Participants will typically travel daily, learning to prepare their own meals on fires and camp stoves, setting up their own schedules, learning outdoor skills (survival skills, map and compass, etc...), and learning about group dynamics.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Crystalaire has been offering alternative outdoor adventure education experiences for almost a century. Our staff are highly trained, and will have lifeguarding and wilderness medicine certifications as well as prior experience. We believe in creating playful and inclusive trips in wild places that offer meaningful experiences for all participants. We consider each trip to be a "microsociety," and give our participants the chance to weigh in and decide how they want that "microsociety" to function, how they want people to be treated, and how they want group decisions to be made.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: 16 and 17 year old campers are welcome to join us on our Cojourn, a 3-week outdoor leadership intensive that focuses on our group management and social dynamics curriculum. More information can be found online.

18 - 21 year old applicants can join our Apprenticeship program for a 4-6 week intensive training in outdoor leadership. This is a paid internship.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We provide scholarships based on your own assessment of your need. Let us know what help you need, we'll believe you and will do what we can to meet it.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Family Camps can be created using the Choose Your Own Adventure option.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: We plan trips year round, and are willing to work with you to plan a trip during a spring break, fall break, weekend, or other time of year. We also offer after school programs, can contribute to classroom curriculum or field trips, or can offer training and certifications throughout the year.

Trips vary widely, ranging from 2-days to 3-weeks. For a complete set of programs, go to Our Camp Website Link: www.crystalaireadventures.com

Our camp is situated on 320 acres of property, including nearly a mile of lake front on Lake View, Lake. Camp photos and a virtual tour are available on our web site at: Our Camp Website Link: www.lakeanncamp.com

CAMP FACILITIES: Here is how previous campers have described our property: "Beautiful buildings," "Comfortable cabins," "Clean bathrooms," "Great food," "Awesome lake front activities and swimming." We work hard to maintain great looking, quality buildings that are clean, comfortable and functional for overnight camping. We don't want our message to be distracted by our structures. Our lake is a great place for swimming and has numerous activities to keep campers engaged and relaxed. Outdoor basketball courts, open fields, disc golf and dozens of other on site activities help make Lake Ann Camp a place for great activities and making awesome summer camp memories!

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Lake Ann Camp focuses on helping campers by utilizing a facilitator-led model. In other words, our counselors and program staff receive over 100 hours of training in order to help campers unpack God's truth on their own. To do this, we use every part of our program, from free time to chapel, from meals to high ropes course, in order to engage campers every day. Our camp was established in 1948, and our full time staff has years of camping experience. Since 1948, we have grown in both size of property, and number of campers we see each year, and we continually seek to create life-changing experiences for every individual and group. You can view staff profiles and history about Lake Ann on our web site.

We are certified with the ACA (American Camping Association), a process that demands excellence and care in all that we do. You can be confident we do our best in keeping your campers safe in every activity we present. We are also members of the CCCA (Christ Camping and Conference Association. Our camp happily complies with the ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) in order to demonstrate financially responsible bookkeeping. Lake Ann Camp is rated as a "Best Christian Workplace", a certification that examines and rates each facet of employment here at the camp. Lake Ann Camp is well known for its use of low and high ropes initiatives for both Sr and Jr High campers.

We also have special programs geared toward students in transition. For example, as part of our regular summer programming we have camps geared specifically for 6th and 9th grade students. 6th grade students, preparing for the transition into middle school, enjoy an amazing week soaking in God's creation through a tailor made program focusing on God's power. They stay in cool tree forts, enjoy a creation walk in a nearby stream, tube rides down the river, hikes up (and down!) the sand dunes as well as an unforgettable experience on our camp bog. 9th graders, gearing up for entering high school, start on camp property Monday and Tuesday, but Tuesday afternoon take off for a 3-day river rafting trip. While camping on the banks of the river and learning how to cook and prepare food as a team, campers learn confidence in God and His provisions, as well as crucial team-working skills.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Participants who have graduated at least one year prior to the start of camping season, are eligible to apply to work on staff as a counselor or program director. Both of these positions are paid and come with excellent training (over 100 hours!) before campers arrive on site. Many of our former staff continue to use their Lake Ann Camp training in their vocations, both full-time ministry and in the work force.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Scholarships are available on a camper by camper basis. Please contact the camp with a request, and we will discuss your needs discretely and professionally with an aim to assist.

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: While we are most known for our summer programming, Lake Ann Camp offers year-around camping opportunities. Our snowy winters make for great group retreats and winter camps, and we host not only youth camps, but couples, pastors and men's and women's retreats throughout the year.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Lake Ann Camp is visited by campers from all over the country. In 2014 alone, campers experienced a week or weekend event at LAC from all over the country, including 23 states and over 12 countries.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Van Buren Youth Camp has been known since 1950 for its successful residential summer camp programs for children and teens. These programs are designed to develop the leadership abilities of today’s youth — encouraging personal growth, self-confidence, positive relationships, and individual and group responsibility.

All staff are certified in CPR/AED/First Aid and properly certified/trained for their specific area of responsibility. They have gone through extensive training in child development, camp safety, recreational games, team building and magic making. All Program staff must be at least 18 years old. Cabin Counselors are volunteers from our Leadership Workshop (or have counseled for us in the past). Both groups must go through an application and interview process, provide letters of recommendation/references and clear required background checks.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Our Leadership Workshop is a one of a kind amazing program! Our high school age campers volunteer to assist with the planning of the week each year. From selecting the theme, to developing topics for General Sessions and Clinics, to recruiting the speakers to present this information to the group...they are involved in every aspect of the program development. There are no cabin counselors at Leadership Workshop...the campers select a different "Counselor of the Day" who will take on additional responsibilities and meet with the Leadership Counsel. The week is designed to see how far we can stretch them outside of their comfort zone while trying to foster a sense of community responsibility. To Lead Is To Serve is our "motto" but the theme of the week each year is different. This is the first session offered each year and where we recruit our volunteer Cabin Counselors

We also offer a CIT opportunity. Counselors In Training volunteer alongside a Cabin Counselor for the majority of the week. On the last day of the session, the CIT will take over the leadership of the cabin to get a real taste of making the decisions and coaching the group through the daily schedule.

HISTORY- Chicago Youth Centers (CYC) is Chicago's largest independent, locally based, multi-site youth services organization. It was founded in 1956 by two visionaries, Chicago businessmen Elliott Donnelley and Sidney Epstein, who wanted young people living in poverty to have an alternative to the streets.

CYC was born out of three boys' clubs that had fallen on hard times. With the merger of the American Boys Commonwealth Club and the Boys Brotherhood Republic in North Lawndale together with the South Side Boys Club (later renamed the Elliott Donnelley Youth Center) in Bronzeville, a new city-wide agency was formed: Camp Rosenthal has benefited thousands of Chicago children, ages seven to 15, since 1962.

Camp offers urban youth an opportunity to gain team-building, leadership and social skills as well as a sense of belonging and responsibility through hiking, sailing, canoeing, swimming and campfire storytelling.

PHILOSOPHY - At CYC’s Camp Rosenthal, our goal is to teach independent life, skills that each camper can take back home and implement into their daily lives.

SUMMER CAMP JOBS:
When looking for summer employment there are many camps to choose from, but which camp is the right one for you That is an important question to ask yourself when looking for a summer camp job. Picking the right camp can determine whether you have a great summer or decide that you never want to work for a summer camp ever again.

When selecting a camp for employment think about these questions;

What is the mission of the camp? Does that mission resonate with your beliefs? What kind of camp is it? Who do they serve and what kind of program is offered to the campers? Where is it located and how long has it been in-existence? Will you be able to handle the environment? Does it have a rich history? How invested is the organization or Camp Director in the camp? In other words are things falling apart at the camp or do they have the essential items in order to run an efficient program? How many staff from previous summers come back? Does the camp have a high ratio of returning campers?

All of these are important questions to ask when interviewing with a Camp Director and asking these questions shows that you are truly invested in where you spend your summer. The answers you receive may help you select a camp that is the right fit for you, but will they guarantee that your summer will be flawless with nothing but sunny days, no stress, good sleep, children that will listen at all times, amazing food, great communication between you and your co-workers, no sun burn, tons of fun, no homesickness, good sleep... Oh wait I said that already... The answer is....... NO!

While all of those questions are important to ask, the truth is your experience is what you make it and depends on how much you dedicate yourself to your role and the camp community. If you as a staff member have no interest in making the summer camp experience for your campers a memorable one then what is your purpose and how are you fulfilling the camp philosophy? What is your primary goal as a staff member and how much are you willing to invest your time and energy into your program?

Some of my best counselors when I was a camper made camp memorable by investing their time in me, by motivating me to step out of my comfort zone or by observing me and knowing exactly when I needed a nudge to bring my best foot forward. I wanted to be around that kind of counselor because it was usually that counselor who believed in me, even when I had lost all belief in myself. On the outside looking in I never really knew what stresses my counselors were facing, but I am sure they had their share of adversity as a camp counselor because it is the one job that will challenge you and help you discover things about yourself you never knew.

After years of being a camper, staff member, and a Camp Director I've come to realize that campers and staff go through the same situations every summer. For example, Campers get home sick, staff do too - Campers get nervous and stressed, staff do too - Campers have sleepless nights, staff do too - Campers get sick of the repetitive food, staff do too - Campers don't always agree with their peers, staff don't too - Campers have moments of wanting to give up and go home and guess what? Staff do too!

The only way you will truly know if you made the right decision is at the end of the summer when you reflect on your summer, look back at your experiences, take the good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly and say to yourself... I can't wait to come back next summer! And guess what? Campers will too!

Here are the jobs we are currently recruiting for our 2014 Summer Camp Season.
-Male Cabin Counselors (7 slots are still open)
-Female Cabin Counselors (7 slots are still open)

Camp Newaygo's primary program is girls resident camp, which provides campers the opportunity to have an adventure they couldn't get anywhere else. Being an all-girl's camp, our staff and campers feel free to be themselves, and are celebrated for their personalities. Staff at Camp Newaygo have three primary responsibilities: to teach daily classes (everything from swimming to sign language), to live in the cabins and tents with campers, and to lead outdoor trips - both backpacking and paddling.
