HomeFront Summer Associates VISTA - Camp Administration
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 Administrative will be a critical part of bringing the Summer Camp to life by working alongside children and youth from low opportunity families. Camp Mercer’s Administrative VISTA utilizes a trauma informed care approach to walk alongside campers. They have an understanding of 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 Administrative VISTA works closely with the Administrative Supervisor, Director other Camp Supervisors to ensure all administrative duties are completed correctly and on time. They are able to stay calm during stressful situations and stay on top of tasks in a fast-paced environment. The Administrative 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 also use common sense and good judgment to significantly impact camper and staff experience.
