Working at summer camp is the most fun you will ever have at work. You’ll make lifelong friends, be a role model for our campers, and learn more about yourself as a leader. Of course, we know summer camp isn’t forever, so we’ll focus on how what you’re learning creates a basis for important professional skills that you’ll use for the rest of your life.

Under 16? Check out our Future Leaders program for youth entering eighth and ninth grades. Future Leaders function as counselors-in-training. Participants get experience working alongside camp groups, along with daily meetings to help further learning and two fun field trips.
