Camp Akeela Info Session
Start Date: 3/22/2017Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 3/22/2017End Time: 1:10 PM

Event Description:
During our info session, you'll learn all about why being a camp counselor at Akeela is the summer job you've been searching for! Come learn about our quirky camper population and your integral role in their summer experience. We'll also walk you through a typical day at camp and help you understand how camp jobs are great for your career.

Here is a note from Adella Sundmark ('17) who will be at the session to talk to students and answer any questions: "I spent two summers, after my sophomore and junior years, working at Akeela. Although I have taken lots of great Education and Psychology classes at Swarthmore, I can honestly say that Akeela is where I really figured out what I want to do and what my strengths are. The camp, which is predominantly for kids and teens with high-functioning Autism, is all about growth. Kids are challenged to try new things, make friends, and develop confidence and social skills. However, Akeela is all about growth for staff too. During my time at Akeela I had lots of really experienced professionals looking out for me, giving me feedback and advice, and supporting me when things got hard. It can be a challenging and sometimes stressful place to work, but also an incredibly rewarding experience. I think this is a really great place for Swatties who are interested in going into education, psychology, or other social service field. I can guarantee you will get lots of support and feedback, and probably come away from the experience with a better idea of your strengths and challenges. If you have a passion for working with kids and are able to think on your feet, be flexible and creative, and work hard, I highly recommend considering Akeela."
