There are 2 Crew Chairs this year.
The role of a Crew-Chair is to assist the Crew Director in overseeing camp operations and assisting in the training and leadership of the other members of Crew. Each Crew-Chair will be assigned specific elements of camp that they are responsible for planning and executing.
These are our 2018 Crew Chairs!
We have 8 Crew positions this year.
Being a Cub Camp Crew member gives you a different camp experience. Our Crew members work closely with the Executive Team and professional staff to carry out the “behind the scenes” logistics of Cub Camp.
While Counselors have extended training and facilitate one specific role, our Crew members have a shorter hiring/training timeline and function in multiple roles while at camp – working both independently, in pairs, and as part of a whole team - to create the experiences and environment that makes Cub Camp successful.
Crew members can expect to develop skills which make them impressive candidates to future employers and Cub Camp will help you translate your Crew job to your resume. The role requires someone with an entrepreneurial spirit; this is a challenging and rewarding role. Members of Crew do not have direct interaction with new students, but instead gain a better understanding of the scope of the organization and the impact this program has on incoming freshmen by serving in a strategic and supportive role.
