Junior Camp Aides will learn valuable skills such as teamwork and cooperation as they prepare to become a future Camp Aide or CIT. Participants will still be able to enjoy the daily camp experience while taking on more responsibility than the average camper. The Junior Camp Aide fee is $103 per week for JCC of Syracuse members and $155 per week for non-members. Camp Aide • Camp Aides must be 14-years old at time of attendance • Weeks 1–8 Each Camp Aide will work with a counselor as a job coach during his or her week at the JCC. The Camp Aide will be assigned to a group and assist the counselors and CITs. Camp Aides will have the added advantage of participating in the programs of their group. Swimming, field trips and overnights are all included in this camp. Camp Aides may be required to attend a meeting/training with the Camp Director. Though there is no guarantee of group assignments, the Camp Director will work with the Camp Aides in order to accommodate their interests. Requests are encouraged, but not guaranteed.
