*You must answer the following questions to be considered as a candidate for a paid position this summer. Be thorough and specific please.
I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your responses. If you worked all summer, I have a pretty good idea of what you did, so don’t write a book about it. Just be honest with yourself here. If I ever called you by the wrong name, you better include a picture with your application...)
#1) Describe your strongest performance as a counselor last summer; be specific.
Discuss the drill, exercise, activity that you were involved in when you had this strong experience. What was the skill or personal attribute that helped you perform? Did you demonstrate an exercise? Did you explain a drill? Motivate or counsel a camper?
#2) Describe your weakest performance as a counselor last summer; be specific.
Discuss the drill, exercise, activity that you were involved in when you had this weak experience. What did you fail to do? What skill or personal attribute will you need to develop to improve your performance in the future.
#3) In a typical day at camp, would you say you were “very active”, “somewhat active” , “somewhat inactive”, or “passive” as an instructor. From start to finish, from form running to assisted stretching at the end of camp, label your level of activity and justify your response.
