Who We Hire
At the very core of Camp Ho Mita Koda is our staff, made up of teachers, education students, medical professionals, college athletes and coaches, artists and other young professionals. We select only the best, most dedicated, and qualified staff, many of whom grew up at CHMK as campers or CITs. Our counselors come from the United States and from all over the world.
Camp Ho Mita Kodacounselors are fun, mature, and knowledgeable people, whose first priority is to provide a safe, high-quality program to our campers. They provide group and individual instructions in our activities and act as mentors and role models to our campers. In short, our counselors are a huge part of what makes Camp Ho Mita Koda great!
We’ve found that the best counselors are leaders who know how to work very well in groups as well as on their own while enjoying learning from an experienced leadership staff as well as the campers they live with every day! Beyond teaching and leadership skills, we look for maturity, trustworthiness, dependability, flexibility, and a willingness to put campers before themselves. Our expectations and standards are high for experience and certifications, as well as behavior in and out of camp.
Counselors spend a full week or more before campers arrive receiving intensive training and learning the ins and outs of Camp Ho Mita Kodapolicies, games, culture, and how best to care for your children. Plus, with a staff of over 30 for 80 campers, our camper to staff ratio ensures that every camper gets the care and attention they need.
