Our Mentorship Program
For teens who might want to work at camp some day or who just aren’t quite ready to give up that sweet camper life, this program is a great way to get a taste for what it’s like to be a counselor and stay connected to Steve & Kate’s.
Intended exclusively for rising 8th graders and above (but not yet 18 years old to be eligible for work at camp), our Mentorship program is an experience where former campers or teens who are new to Steve & Kate’s will have a self-directed experience. Under the supervision of Steve & Kate’s staff, Mentees (that’s what we call our program participants) learn about our programs and engaging with kids by seeing our staff in action and getting hands-on experience helping run activities. They will observe how our staff members lead their activities and assist them in doing so. Mentees pick up leadership skills and learn how to serve as role models, while also helping show younger campers the ropes and getting behind-the-scenes access to camp.
