Youth Leader Interest

Thank you for taking some time to share more about your child's interest in returning to our youth leader program at our classic Monkey Business Camps. Youth Leaders play such a vital role at camp, assisting the staff in creating the magic, fun and safety our camp is known for! 

This survey is for returning youth leaders only - if your child is new to being a youth leader with us (even if they have been a camper), please fill out this survey instead.

Reminders:
Counselors in Training (CIT): Ages 11+
Junior Counselors (JC): ages 14+ who have been CITs, received positive feedback, and are ready for more responsibility. Sometimes 14 year olds remain in the CIT role to gain more experience and skills. Older CITs may be offered discounted pricing, especially if they have a lot of experience at camps.

Camp Hours: 8:25-4:35pm, with mid day half hour break; and weekly team meetings, which are usually Tuesday afternoon.
There are fees for this program. For specifics, see camp webpage and youth leader details are at the bottom of that page.

Question Title

* 1. Parent/Guardian Name

Question Title

* 2. Parent/Guardian email address

Question Title

* 3. Name, date of birth and gender identity of potential youth leader. For example, Peter, 6.2.2008, non-binary, uses they/them pronouns.

Question Title

* 4. Are you interested in your child being a CIT or a JC?

Question Title

* 6. Which camp sessions do you want to register for? Choose all that apply. If you are unsure about all now, e-mail office@monkeybusinesscamp.com later with any updates. We recommend no more than 6 week sign-ups for youth leaders.

Question Title

* 7. Older CITs may be offered JC pricing, especially if they have a lot of experience at ours or at other camps. Would you like to request that?

Question Title

* 8. I can commit that my child will attend all dates of camp (they are only on weekdays) if accepted, and will show up on time daily at 8:25 and stay until the end of each day at 4:35 (note, if coming with sibling, it is okay for them both to come 8:30 and leave 4:30).  I will schedule appointments or vacation time after camp hours or on weekends.  Of course, for sickness, they should stay home.

Question Title

* 9. I understand that my child, as a youth leader does not have flexible arrival or pick up times, like campers do. The staff need their assistance at the start and end of the day.

Question Title

* 10. I understand part of the orientation to camp is for my child and myself to read youth leader handbook to help us orient to camp and the youth leader role.  This is for both return and new youth leaders. They will also fill out a review question survey before the May 25th appreciation and orientation or asap if after that time. 

Question Title

* 11. Can you attend the Youth Leader In Person Appreciation and Orient?
Date and Time: Thursday, May 25th, 5:15-8:00 (arrival from 5-5:15)
Location: Tilden Meadows site
Youth Leaders will get a chance to tie dye a T-shirt that we will provide, eat a delicious dinner and dessert, pick up their gear, and learn about helping out this summer, our 25th anniversary! 
This is highly recommended not to miss, but if you absolutely cannot make it, you can still attend camp as a youth leader and you will orient in other ways, reading the handbook and then once on site at camp.

Question Title

* 12. Anything else you would like to share that was not covered on this survey?

IMPORTANT NEXT STEP: Please email us at office@monkeybusinesscamp.com so that we know that you submitted this and can review your request.  We will get back to you ASAP.
