The philosophy of Camp Carolina centers around the simplicity of life, importance of self-reliance, value of human relations, wonders of nature, respect for property and resources, and the challenge of high adventure. Our purpose is to make a boy’s summer a valuable factor in his complete development. This can be accomplished through recruiting the right staff who have plenty of enthusiasm, determination, and strong moral values.
Our goals are to promote self-confidence and develop character, to create community living skills, independence, lasting friendships and competency and sportsmanship. We achieve this by providing campers with challenging experiences, adventure and on-going social interaction in a safe camp community. We have a commitment to parents for their sons, physical & emotional development, welfare, and safety. We achieve this by offering qualified staff and ensuring safe facilities. Each staff member plays an active role in the camp administration by understanding his/her responsibilities and demonstrating respect for all. This ensures the maximum experience for campers. Successful counselors are open to suggestions while striving for a common goal.
WHAT WE WANT FROM YOU!
At Carolina, the most important job and the principle responsibility of a camp counselor is to be a good role model. We need counselors who can rise to the challenge of ‘PUTTING THE KIDS FIRST’. The counselor’s task is to be a warm friend, a willing guide and a director of positive energies.
Camp Carolina is located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, consists of 220 acres and is bordered on 3 sides by the 450,000 acres of Pisgah National Forest. We have full access to this wonderful forest under a special use permit. We have a large lake and mountain biking/horse riding trails on site.
