We place 3-4 General Counselors and 1-2 Specialty Counselors in each bunk. As a General Counselor, you will not only sleep in the bunk with your campers, but you will spend each day participating in all general camp activities –- from meals to sports activities and even just hanging out during the downtime. We believe that in order to be an effective General Counselor, you’ll need the following qualities: patience, compassion, fairness, great listening and communication skills and the ability to relate to kids. It is always helpful that you have some prior experience working with kids.
As a specialty counselor, you will also live in the bunk with the campers and have major general bunk responsibilities, while also spending six hours each day working in your specialty area. It is very important to understand that every staff member is first and foremost a general counselor, and serves as a role model for his or her campers. However, once the daily activities begin each morning, specialists report to their area of specialty. The head specialist will provide guidance and training to ensure each specialist performs to the best of his/her ability. Applicants must demonstrate a strong aptitude in their specialty area and must have relevant experience teaching/coaching children.

Although in some cases you may not live in a bunk, we follow a team approach and all work together to ensure the highest quality program and camp experience.
Support Service Staff work behind the scenes to ensure camp is running smoothly, working in the Kitchen, in Housekeeping, on the Maintenance/Security Crew or Office Staff.

Applicants must demonstrate a strong aptitude in their specific area.

Tyler Hill Camp has nine nurses and a doctor on staff. The Health Center is covered at all times and all Health Center staff members are available for each “med call” (after breakfast, lunch and dinner.) Each nurse is on duty two nights a week. All LPN’s and RN’s must be State Licensed. Good communication skills are essential, as interacting with parents and campers is a large part of the nurse’s role.
