We are looking for a one-on-one counselor for our 9 year old son Jonah who wants to attend Camp Judea in Hendersonville, North Carolina for his first over night Jewish camping experience from July 10 - 20.
Jonah is independent in most areas but, because he has Down syndrome, we want to employ a one-on-one counselor. This person will be a young man who hopefully has overnight Jewish camping experience. Experience with children with special needs is not necessary as long as they have the desire to work with a child with special needs. But it is a plus!
This person will sleep in the cabin with Jonah and his cabin mates and 2 other counselors. This person will assist Jonah throughout the day so he may participate and be as independent as possible. Jonah's needs are mild. He is verbal, friendly, silly, loves the Beatles, and loves being Jewish!
This person will have a bunk to sleep in and food will be provided. You will have one break during the day like the other counselors.
