Dear Parents and Prospective Counselors,
We strive to provide the most impactful experience possible for everyone involved in Camp Swift, and we therefore uphold a merit-based application process to select our Camp Swift counselors. We have worked hard to ensure that this process will be as objective as possible. We will have a committee made up of Swift Youth Foundation staff, board members, and experienced volunteers who will all be involved in the application review process. In order to be as transparent as possible, we are sharing with you the rubric the team will be using to score each application. Each person on the committee will be reviewing each application, and scores from each reviewer will be averaged for a final score. The applicants with the highest scores off of this rubric will be accepted to be counselors for Camp Swift 2018. A few things to note:
We will be collecting payment only once an individual is accepted as a counselor. Payment must be made within one week of acceptance unless prior arrangement has been made (in writing by email) with Kaylie Medansky, Executive Director. If payment is not made by the deadline the spot will be forfeited and given to an applicant on the wait list.
