I worked at US Sports Camps full-time (Less than a year)
Working at Nike Junior Tennis at Amherst College was awesome
Knowledgeable staff and employees
Well-run business structure
Living at a resident camp is definitely an adjustment, but it ends up being a lot of fun
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at US Sports Camps (Santa Cruz, CA) in May 2010.
You need to be recommended for the position. The interview will be a basic phone interview asking about why you want to be a counselor, what sports mean to you, have you worked with kids? It is easy to get in, but working on the job is basically part of the interview process.
