HomeFront Summer Associates VISTA - Camp Facilities
For many years, HomeFront has run Camp Mercer, a day camp that serves children and youth from low opportunity families. We create a safe, welcoming environment, while giving them a summer of social, intellectual, and personal enrichment. We anticipate running a 2022 summer program with as much in-person interaction as the pandemic will permit. The Summer Camp Facilities VISTA will be a critical part of bringing the Summer Camp to life by providing essential operational assistance to ensure Camp runs smoothly. Camp Mercer’s Facilities VISTA utilizes a trauma informed care approach to walk alongside campers. They understand barriers faced by children experiencing homelessness and want to dedicate their summer to help campers work through them. They serve as a role model, an advisor, a confidant, and a supervisor to the campers. The Facilities VISTA oversees everything facility related. Including but not limited to, setup, cleanup, ensuring an adequate amount of camp supplies, building safety, minor repairs and storage of all camp supplies. The Facilities VISTA partners with other camp staff in creating a safe, fun, and educational experience and active devotion to the well-being and happiness of each camper. They are a team player and are willing to do what is needed to ensure camp runs smoothly, utilizing common sense and good judgment to significantly impact camper experience.
