It takes a special person to be a Camp Mystic counselor. We hire young women who will be positive role models, have genuine love of children, and truly want to spend time with the cabins of campers they are assigned to. Counselors should: be wholesome in language, appearance and action, be willing to comply with all camp policies, and be outstanding examples to our young girls. Counseling does involve hard work, but it is so rewarding that you will feel you had a happy, fulfilling summer.
Mystic counselors are paid salaries, provided with furnished room and board, plus given a laundry allowances. Counselors must have completed at least one year of college. Counselors will gain leadership experience, make life-long friends, and receive favorable reference letters for their future for jobs well done.
Counselors have the dual role of teaching an activity and serving as a cabin counselor. Two or three counselors reside in each cabin, with an average of sixteen campers per cabin. Cabin life is the most important aspect of a child’s camping experience, and it is the counselor’s main responsibility to make cabin life fun, harmonious, and uplifting.
Counselors and staff may apply to work out 1st, 2nd, or 3rd term session (Camp Mystic Guadalupe River) or 4th or 5th session (Camp Mystic Cypress Lake). You are welcome to sign up for more than one, but we encourage only working two sessions total.
