Ppsting this for a friend: Paid Position- Summer Camp Counselor with Diabetes and/or Diabetes Experience?Summer 2011 Background: We have an 11 year old son who has recently been diagnosed with diabetes. For the third consecutive summer, our son will be attending a seven week sleep-away camp in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York (just north of Saratoga Springs and Lake George). The camp is a leading camp in the U.S.-- however, it is not a diabetes camp. We are currently looking for a male who can serve as a full-time general counselor in our son's cabin at camp, while simultaneously serving as a "shadow" for him. The position runs from mid-June through the third week of August (including pre-camp orientation). Friends of ours whose children have diabetes and attend the same camp have successfully filled this position for several summers and have a lot of positive experience to share. Our son is a fun-loving, sweet and sensitive boy who enjoys many different activities. Although he has quickly become comfortable with many aspects of managing his diabetes, his diagnosis is new and he will need to be supervised and monitored throughout the summer. He currently tests his blood four times a day and takes insulin by injection three times a day. Ideal Candidate: The ideal candidate must be at least 19 years old, hardworking, patient and extremely responsible. The person must enjoy working with kids, and have a desire to work at a summer camp. The person must have knowledge of diabetes and how to manage it.
