YMCA Camp Eberhart

YMCA Camp Eberhart is located in a hilly-wooded-lakey district in Southwest Michigan. We have been providing excellent camper experiences for the past 106 years. Our goal as a camp is to provide outstanding and life-changing experiences to Eberhart campers through creative programs that developing lasting relationships. We are not the smallest camp but we aren't the biggest. We have a beautiful lake-front piece of property that is both remote and isolated while also being readily accessible to Chicago. YMCA Camp Eberhart has extensive water programs including: waterskiing, swimming, boating, and sailing. We also have a number of the other traditional camp programs including a large horses program and a unique astronomy program. As an inclusive organization, all different types of people are welcome to join the Eberhart staff. Specifically though, applicants should be committed to developing youth, having fun, and working hard on a committed team.

Briefly describe how staff time off works at your camp...
1 hour a day, 1 evening a week, an 1 day a week. We run 1 week sessions throughout the summer so between sessions (i.e. Saturday afternoon through Sunday mid day) is when all staff get their 1 day off.

Tell us what sort of qualities you look for in a staff member...
I'm looking for staff who want to work with kids. I believe that every moment a camper is at camp is an opportunity to change a kid's life. I'm looking for staff who are creative and who are willing to be present with campers as they develop in character and maturity. I'm looking for role models who know how to have fun.
