HISTORY- Chicago Youth Centers (CYC) is Chicago's largest independent, locally based, multi-site youth services organization. It was founded in 1956 by two visionaries, Chicago businessmen Elliott Donnelley and Sidney Epstein, who wanted young people living in poverty to have an alternative to the streets.

CYC was born out of three boys' clubs that had fallen on hard times. With the merger of the American Boys Commonwealth Club and the Boys Brotherhood Republic in North Lawndale together with the South Side Boys Club (later renamed the Elliott Donnelley Youth Center) in Bronzeville, a new city-wide agency was formed: Camp Rosenthal has benefited thousands of Chicago children, ages seven to 15, since 1962.

Camp offers urban youth an opportunity to gain team-building, leadership and social skills as well as a sense of belonging and responsibility through hiking, sailing, canoeing, swimming and campfire storytelling.

PHILOSOPHY - At CYC’s Camp Rosenthal, our goal is to teach independent life, skills that each camper can take back home and implement into their daily lives.

SUMMER CAMP JOBS:
When looking for summer employment there are many camps to choose from, but which camp is the right one for you That is an important question to ask yourself when looking for a summer camp job. Picking the right camp can determine whether you have a great summer or decide that you never want to work for a summer camp ever again.

When selecting a camp for employment think about these questions;

What is the mission of the camp? Does that mission resonate with your beliefs? What kind of camp is it? Who do they serve and what kind of program is offered to the campers? Where is it located and how long has it been in-existence? Will you be able to handle the environment? Does it have a rich history? How invested is the organization or Camp Director in the camp? In other words are things falling apart at the camp or do they have the essential items in order to run an efficient program? How many staff from previous summers come back? Does the camp have a high ratio of returning campers?

All of these are important questions to ask when interviewing with a Camp Director and asking these questions shows that you are truly invested in where you spend your summer. The answers you receive may help you select a camp that is the right fit for you, but will they guarantee that your summer will be flawless with nothing but sunny days, no stress, good sleep, children that will listen at all times, amazing food, great communication between you and your co-workers, no sun burn, tons of fun, no homesickness, good sleep... Oh wait I said that already... The answer is....... NO!

While all of those questions are important to ask, the truth is your experience is what you make it and depends on how much you dedicate yourself to your role and the camp community. If you as a staff member have no interest in making the summer camp experience for your campers a memorable one then what is your purpose and how are you fulfilling the camp philosophy? What is your primary goal as a staff member and how much are you willing to invest your time and energy into your program?

Some of my best counselors when I was a camper made camp memorable by investing their time in me, by motivating me to step out of my comfort zone or by observing me and knowing exactly when I needed a nudge to bring my best foot forward. I wanted to be around that kind of counselor because it was usually that counselor who believed in me, even when I had lost all belief in myself. On the outside looking in I never really knew what stresses my counselors were facing, but I am sure they had their share of adversity as a camp counselor because it is the one job that will challenge you and help you discover things about yourself you never knew.

After years of being a camper, staff member, and a Camp Director I've come to realize that campers and staff go through the same situations every summer. For example, Campers get home sick, staff do too - Campers get nervous and stressed, staff do too - Campers have sleepless nights, staff do too - Campers get sick of the repetitive food, staff do too - Campers don't always agree with their peers, staff don't too - Campers have moments of wanting to give up and go home and guess what? Staff do too!

The only way you will truly know if you made the right decision is at the end of the summer when you reflect on your summer, look back at your experiences, take the good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly and say to yourself... I can't wait to come back next summer! And guess what? Campers will too!

Here are the jobs we are currently recruiting for our 2014 Summer Camp Season.
-Male Cabin Counselors (7 slots are still open)
-Female Cabin Counselors (7 slots are still open)
-Floater staff (4 slot is still open)

Our programs include chess programs and camps thru USA Chess, Our Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Programs and our Active Learning Computer Enrichment Programs.

Our staff is, comprised of the best children's chess instructors in North America! The USA Chess camps are uniquely qualified to cater to the needs of the advanced scholastic player as well as the true beginner. USA Chess hit its first milestone in the summer of 2000 producing the largest chess camp ever held in the United States, with more than 250 students enrolled. What was most surprising, however, was the amount of absolute beginners in attendance - more than 50% of the total enrollment was just starting to play chess. This realization led to the national rollout tour of 100 camps in more than 70 cities. The annual tours have been immensely successful with several thousand campers attending this year alone.

USA Chess thrives on providing a structured environment that is extremely conducive to learning chess. We handpick the best children's chess instructors from all over the United States and bring them to each camp. We believe our team is most effective in teaching chess to children of all ages and levels. The exceptional organization and ever-fun curriculum has fueled much interest from scholastic players and coaches from around the country, prompting them to request USA Chess camps in their areas.

At the same summer camp locations, we also offer the immensely popular Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Camps, The Active Learning Computer Animation Programs, and other Computer Enrichment Programs such as Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft. We now offer seven unique programs in all.

At these camps, children are assigned a computer for the week; they spend the week learning to create their own one-of- a- kind video games in our Gamebuilder Camps, Animation Projects in our Animation Camps, also Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft.

These programs are designed to develop the leadership abilities of today’s youth — encouraging personal growth, self-confidence, positive relationships, and individual and group responsibility.

All staff are certified in CPR/AED/First Aid and properly certified/trained for their specific area of responsibility. They have gone through extensive training in child development, camp safety, recreational games, team building and magic making. All Program staff must be at least 18 years old. Cabin Counselors are volunteers from our Leadership Workshop (or have counseled for us in the past). Both groups must go through an application and interview process, provide letters of recommendation/references and clear required background checks.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Our Leadership Workshop is a one of a kind amazing program! Our high school age campers volunteer to assist with the planning of the week each year. From selecting the theme, to developing topics for General Sessions and Clinics, to recruiting the speakers to present this information to the group...they are involved in every aspect of the program development. There are no cabin counselors at Leadership Workshop...the campers select a different "Counselor of the Day" who will take on additional responsibilities and meet with the Leadership Counsel. The week is designed to see how far we can stretch them outside of their comfort zone while trying to foster a sense of community responsibility. To Lead Is To Serve is our "motto" but the theme of the week each year is different. This is the first session offered each year and where we recruit our volunteer Cabin Counselors

We also offer a CIT opportunity. Counselors In Training volunteer alongside a Cabin Counselor for the majority of the week. On the last day of the session, the CIT will take over the leadership of the cabin to get a real taste of making the decisions and coaching the group through the daily schedule.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Since 1926 campers from around the country and throughout the world have enjoyed fun filled summers at Camp Newaygo Girl's Resident Camp.

Camp Newaygo's primary program is girls resident camp, which provides campers the opportunity to have an adventure they couldn't get anywhere else. Being an all-girl's camp, our staff and campers feel free to be themselves, and are celebrated for their personalities. Staff at Camp Newaygo have three primary responsibilities: to teach daily classes (everything from swimming to sign language), to live in the cabins and tents with campers, and to lead outdoor trips - both backpacking and paddling.

You will never find a more genuine, compassionate, or caring environment for youth and staff. We pride ourselves on inclusion, and are always seeking adventures. If you are looking for the best summer of your life, congratulations, you've found it at Camp Newaygo.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Our Leader in Training group are exceptional young women who share the spirit of teamwork, adventure and individual challenge, while working closely with senior counselors. Young women entering the 12th grade that exhibit leadership potential are selected to participate in this unique program.

L.I.T.s will live in the cabins to learn from counselors. They will also lead activities, learn about group dynamics and become certified in Waterfront Lifeguarding, CPR, and basic first aid. Participate for as few as 3 weeks or as many as 7 weeks.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): My Mom & Me (or Grandma, too!) Specifically designed for young children and their mom's, grandmothers, aunts or another special female adult. The program offers an opportunity to introduce children (boys and girls) to the joys of camping. Singing around the campfire, canoeing on Lake Pickerel, catching their first fish, or doing crafts together are more fun together when all the planning and preparation are done for you. And, no cooking all weekend! Programs run Saturday at 11am to Sunday at 3pm.

My Dad & Me (or Grandpa too!) Specifically designed for young children and their dads, grandfathers, uncles or another special male adult. You and your "son or daughter" will be busy having fun trying archery, canoeing, games, and enjoying the woods and water.

CAMP LOCATION: The Homestead resort is located at Glen Arbor, about 30 miles west of Traverse City’s Cherry Capital Airport. Please visit our website for camp photos and additional description.

CAMP FACILITIES: It was designed, built and is managed to help you best enjoy the Most Beautiful Place in America.

On its west are miles of sandy beaches on which you can walk for hours. The resort's beaches are soothing by day, spectacular at sunset, remarkably romantic on starry nights. To its east is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the area chosen by the viewers of ABC’s Good Morning America as “The Most Beautiful Place in America.”

Within the resort, neighborhoods separated by nature provide a wide range of high-quality accommodations. Some are perfect for couples, some for families, and some for groups. All are beautiful. There are shops, restaurants, and recreational facilities. There are places for weddings, receuptions, reunions, and meetings. All of them are staffed by caring and attentive professionals.

You could be pampered at the spa or salon, sit by a pool, play a round of golf or hike in the National Lakeshore. Or, you could teach your kids to swim, play tennis or golf, ski or snowboard.

Simply said, you decide how you want to spend your time in the Most Beautiful Place in America. We take care of the rest.
