Clear Creek Summer Camp is looking for new camp counselors. These counselors are Alpine School District students who are currently in 9th – 11th grade for the 22-23 school year. If you love the outdoors, can geek out about nature, have a desire to be a positive peer and eager helper, then we need you to help make Clear Creek an amazing experience for our 5th grade students.
As most of you know, Clear Creek Summer Camp is Alpine School District’s outdoor education camp, directed and staffed by Alpine School District teachers and administrators. It is a camp dedicated to helping kids learn about and appreciate our forests, water, soil and wildlife. Clear Creek has been in existence for 50 years and is located just outside of Scofield, UT.
In order to allow more students to experience camp and to keep students safe and happy, we are currently operating on a two day, no overnight, model. This model includes all of the premier activities enjoyed by previous campers- Ropes courses, stream study, tree and flower hikes, field book sketching, fossil studies, erosion tables, a hot-dog roast, and of course those nutty songs, games and critter trapping that help make Clear Creek Summer Camp a life-long memory!
Day one will be held at Valley View Elementary in Pleasant Grove. Students will get their camp shirt, meet fellow campers, play games, work leather, spend time at the nature preserve park nearby and receive hands-on instruction and training for each of the field experiences coming on day two – just as they would have done at Clear Creek in prior years. This day will begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude at 2:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
Day two will be held at Clear Creek. Students will load the bus at Valley View Elementary at 7:00 a.m. and return that evening at 7:30 p.m. That day is packed with the field experiences they will have prepared for on day one and will conclude with a picnic dinner in the forest. Each session will include 100 new friends from all around the district being supervised by 7 certified district personnel and 4 high school aged camp counselors. Lunch and dinner will be provided.
Please check school websites for school based resources, such as bell schedules and school meals. Employees should visit the Alpine Employe Gateway for employee specific resources.
