Camp Live Oak: Still Seeking Arts and Crafts Counselor

Camp Live Oak, the only ACA accredited camp in Broward County, has been offering award-winning, educational outdoor programs for over 20 years in two local state parks. Children ages 5-13 experience a traditional day camp with exciting activities including archery, canoeing, swimming, surfing, non-competitive sports, paddle boarding, hiking, fishing, arts and crafts, field games, hands-on science, photography, teambuilding, ranger-led programs, expert guest speakers, animal interaction, habitat preservation, beach exploration, field trips, sleepovers and more! In addition to meeting the ideal adult/camper ratio required for American Camp Association accreditation, our staff is comprised of highly qualified certified teachers, specialists, scientists, state guides, ecologists, environmentalists, and water safety instructors. We also adhere to over 300 ACA health, safety and program standards. We have two beautiful camp locations: Birch State Park, 3109 E. Sunrise Blvd., Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33304 and Oleta River State Park, 3400 NE 163rd Street, N, Miami Beach, FL 33160.

Our camp has been in South Florida for over 20 years and has an excellent reputation for educational activities and fun adventures, so the ideal candidate will love working with kids, the environment and of course, art!
