About the Program:

Camp Hope San Diego is looking for people who have a passion for helping children and getting hands-on experience in teaching skills to overcome adversities due to domestic violence. We offer lots of leadership opportunities and track volunteer hours needed for different school programs. Camp HOPE America - San Diego helps youth exposed to trauma and domestic violence find pathways to hope and healing through an innovative camping and year-round mentoring program. Our team at Crisis House is passionate about fostering a safe, hope-driven community for campers and their families through coordinating a week of camp, followed by monthly activities exposing youth to different areas of interest such as nature, arts, and STEM to spark career goals and develop pathways to achieve those goals.

The counselors goal is to aid the Program Manager in running events, engaging with participants in the program, and bonding to build relationships and trust with the participants of the program.

At summer camp, the counselors are in the cabins with the campers, and guiding them through all camp activities throughout the week. Counselors focus on the "Science of HOPE" curriculums and help campers find what their goals and desires for their lives are.
