Are you looking to make a difference in a child’s life this summer?  This may be the camp for you.  Our staff are the heroes, role models, teachers, and mentors to the children we serve here.  Camp is no means easy, and in fact makes for a long day, but the memories you will create and the skills you will gain will make it all worthwhile.  For camp staff, typical camp days run from 8:15-4:15 with early shifts starting at 7am and late shifts running to 6pm.  Positions are also available for bus monitors in which staff ride the bus with the children.  In addition, camp staff must attend training during June 10-15 and the entire summer camp season from June 24-August 23.  Aquatics staff will have different hours, training, and requirements.


We are currently accepting applications for all positions, including:

  • Senior Counselors
  • Junior Counselors
  • Activity Counselors (Archery, Boating, Drama, Outdoor Skills, Nature, Ropes/Adventure)
  • Lifeguards
  • Leadership Staff (Inclusion Staff, Village Leaders, Assistant Village Leaders, & Unit Captains)
  • Support Staff (Maintenance and Housekeepers)
  • Medical Staff (Nurses and EMTs)

If you are passionate about working with children and enjoy the summer spent outside, please contact us.  You will know you have made a difference to a child’s life, because that child will have made a difference in your life.
