It may be difficult to think ahead six months when there is snow on the ground, and Wisconsin Lions Campwe need to bundle up before heading outdoors, but it won’t be long until Lions Camp will be back in session!

The Wisconsin Lions Camp is the largest project supported by Lions Pride, so there’s no surprise to learn that we spend a majority of the year planning for summertime. We’d like to start out the year by helping our friends recruit staff members for the upcoming camping season.

A large, talented team is needed to make the camping season a success, which means we’re already on the lookout for our 2015 staff members. This year, the camp is in need of approximately 100 seasonal staff members, including:

  • 28 counselors
  • 14 program specialists
  • 4 unit directors
  • 4 nursing assistants
  • 2 office assistants
  • 2 Interpreters for the Deaf or Hard of Hearing
  • 15 kitchen staff
  • 24 healthcare staff

Candidates must be at least 18 years old and be willing to learn and train to work with children with special needs. They have a greater chance of being interviewed if they have experience working with special needs, have a certification in lifeguarding, first aid or other camp skills and are available for the majority of the summer. The program starts on May 27 and goes to August 14, 2014. Most of the staff is hired for the length of the season.

Know the right person for the job? Please refer them to the Applications section of the Wisconsin Lions Camp website. There are many resources available to help interested people learn more about the positions. The application is available online, but must be completed and mailed to the Lions Camp office.

Thank you in advance for helping us recruit the 2015 Wisconsin Lions Camp Staff. You can contact the Lions Pride office by emailing us at prideoffice@lionspride.org or calling us at 715-677-3000.
