Cabin Counselor (AKA –Hero) – You will have a bunch of elementary age kids
in your cabin, and they will be  your team.  When they want to do stuff,
you will take them to activities…Amazing Activities like swimming ,  rock
climbing , and art. When they are hungry you will get them food, by taking
them to the dining hall.  When they get grubby, you will take them to the
bath house, where they can shower..and the world will be better. You will
get to know these kids, and they will get to know you, and you can become
their hero.  And at the end of a long amazing camp day of fun, you will
tell them a story and get them to bed, so you can all do it all over again
tomorrow.  A tough job, but amazing (nobody ever said being a hero was
gonna be easy).  Cabin Counselors must be over 18 years of age.
Staff Expectations:

150 years in the heart of Detroit
