Wanted for Summer 2010: Summer Camp Counselor
With Type 1 Diabetes
and/or experience with insulin pump therapy
We are in need of a responsible young man to be a camp cabin counselor for our 11 year old son with Type 1 Diabetes. This paid position would require the candidate to stay seven weeks at Camp Walt Whitman in Piermont, New Hampshire (June 26-August 14th, as well as a week of training prior to these dates). While Camp Walt Whitman is a wonderful, nurturing camp, it is not a diabetes camp. Therefore, the applicant must be well practiced and educated in diabetes management and (ideally) the use of an insulin pump.
Our son is an active camper who enjoys swimming, handball, baseball, football, chess, playing music and reading books. He is very social, has a great sense of humor and is fun to be around. Our goal is to hire someone that will help him continue on his road to being independent with his Diabetes management, while staying close at hand to ensure that he is making safe decisions regarding insulin dosing, exercise, and food choices while at camp.
The ideal applicant for the position must have completed at least one year of college to be eligible. Candidates should be exceptionally responsible and extremely reliable. The applicant must enjoy working with and around children, and be able to be active alongside our son. The candidate also must commit to staying at the summer camp for the prearranged time.
