Please check back in March 2018. Thanks! 
Due to the nature of the drop-in camp, we encourage families interested in participating in ESX to sign-up as soon as registration is open. 

2018 ESX Counselor Application

The 2018 ESX Counselor Application is now open! Counselor hours: 9:30-noon, Monday-Friday (except field trip days when hours are 9:15-noon). Counselors will also be expected to work two paid 3-hour shifts at Family Fete (July 13-15), assisting with the activities for children.
Applicants are able to indicate their weekly availability on the application. Counselors must be at least 14 years old and going into 9th grade, but we also encourage younger folks to apply to be Junior Counselors!

Applications are due Friday, March 2nd
