Summer Camp Counselors
We are looking for dedicated and motivated individuals who want to have a fun, challenging, summer while making a difference in the lives of underserved youth. About 450 staff members from around the world will join us this summer in a variety of roles at our five camps, model farm and ropes course. We're hoping that you can be one of them!
General Counselors are guides and role models to a group of campers as they explore the great outdoors. General Counselors at all camps are assigned to live with a cabin or 6-12 campers each session and are required to provide 24-hour-a-day direct supervision or campers. In addition to assisting in specific activity areas, General Counselors create and lead programs as well as participate in activities throughout the day with their campers. Camp activities include, but are not limited to, hiking, boating, ropes course, model farm, art, dance, sports and recreation and swimming.
