Paid Positions:

Lead Counselors – Lead Counselors lead a camper pod and their counselors, providing assistance and guidance as needed.

Specialists – These staff members plan and lead specialized activities such as music, cooking, games, sports and more. They will rotate between each camper pod to lead these activities.

Volunteer Position:

Volunteer Counselor Assistants - Camp volunteers will be assigned to a Variety child/counselor pairing to provide support and encouragement through daily camp activities.

This year’s Winter Camp will take place in person at Parkway Northeast Middle School (181 Coeur De Ville Dr, Creve Coeur, MO 63141) from December 27 through 31, 2021. Each day of Camp will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The health and safety of our Variety Kids and staff members is our top priority. We will follow all health and safety guidelines current at the time of the event, including social distancing, masking and forming camper pods. Should we feel it is needed, we may make the switch to a Virtual Winter Camp at any time. If this happens, we will still need staff members to help run the virtual program.

We hope you’ll join us this winter in offering a safe and memorable camp experience for Variety Kids and Teens! Click here to apply online now.
