Wanted for Summer 2011: Summer Camp Counselor
With Type 1 Diabetes
and/or experience with insulin pump therapy
WANTED: Two responsible young men to be a camp cabin counselors for a soon to be 12 year-old boy with type 1 diabetes. These paid positions (camp salary plus parent paid salary) would require the candidates to stay seven weeks at Camp Walt Whitman in Piermont, New Hampshire (June 25 to August 13th) as well as a week of training prior to these dates (June 20 to June 25). 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. The counselor will assist our son in becoming 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. The counselors will also be responsible for nighttime bg checks.
The ideal applicants for these positions must have completed at least one year of college to be eligible. Candidates should be exceptionally responsible and extremely reliable. The applicants must have had some prior experience working with children and commit to staying at the summer camp for the prearranged time.
