Students sought for program

By Staff | Jan 13, 2012

College students looking to put their skills to good use will want to check out YMCA Camp Horseshoe. “We’re looking for college-age students who want to use their skills, energy and passion for shaping a better world by influencing today’s teens and children,” said Doug Wetsch, Horseshoe spokesman.

“Horseshoe summer camp counselors make all the difference in the lives of campers,” he continued. “Yes, Horseshoe is fun, friends and all the great times that happen at camp, but it is so much more. Each week adds experiences to help our campers become all they can be, plus return home ready to serve others, and build better futures for all.”

Horseshoe’s summer season includes nationally recognized teen civic leadership and entrepreneurship camps, Adventure Camp for 7-12 year-olds and Youth Opportunity Camps for low income boys and girls.

Summer residential staff enhance their work experience as they use their talents to help teens and children. Summer positions provide a stipend, an AmeriCorps Education Award to eligible summer camp counselors, meals, and lodging.
