Camp Summit

Make a Difference at Camp Summit

Camp Summit is a residential or “sleep away” camp for children and adults with disabilities. With weeklong camp sessions, weekend sessions and respite days, campers are offered a wide variety of traditional camp activities in our barrier-free environment.

Camp Summit hires seasonal staff for each summer and fall to fulfill a safe ratio of two campers to every one counselor. Most staff members live in the cabins (your "home away from home") with the campers during their one-week stay. Many of our staff are college students pursuing fields of human interest. We also work with international agencies to recruit personnel from all over the world. Benefits include salary, room and board, laundry facilities, wireless internet, and the experience of a lifetime!
