Build your sailing skills and inspire a new generation of young lake lovers!

Camp Lake Hubert for Girls is “skill-based;” we use that term to describe the activity experience. Campers work toward skill development in chosen areas. As campers learn activity skills from positive role models – that’s you! – they also practice social skills, community living, and group communication. The opportunity to influence youth in the unique setting of camp is life-affirming, challenges you daily, and builds a solid foundation for growth as a leader in all aspects of life.

Under the supervision of the Sailing Director, our sailing staff assists campers (ages 7-17) in developing the passion and skills to safely sail our 1,200-acre lake! Skills a bit rusty? Been some time since your last sail? Not to worry! We offer specialized training before camper arrival to prepare you for the summer ahead in both sailing and youth development.

All sailing staff will fulfill counselor responsibilities outside of activity time, living on-site in a two-story cabin with a team of 4-6 staff. Under the guidance of their Head Counselor, they will collaborate with that team to care for a group of approximately 25 girls, including providing written correspondence to families about camper experiences, supporting campers struggling with homesickness, planning cabin activities, and serving in a caregiver role to supervise daily morning and evening routines.

Activity staff are expected to arrive to camp a bit earlier than other staff to complete training and lend a hand with projects to open camp (including their activity areas).

Our preferred candidates will be . . .

  • Able to join us no later than 5/25/2023 and depart no sooner than 8/8/2023.
  • 19+, having completed at least one year of university, work experience, or a gap-year following high school.
  • Enthusiastic about summer camp!
  • Women!

About Camp Lake Hubert

Camp Lake Hubert is a traditional summer camp for girls, in operation since 1927. Along with our brother camp, Camp Lincoln (est. 1909), we are situated in the Brainerd Lakes Area of Northern Minnesota (145 miles north of Minneapolis). Two of the oldest and most prestigious camps in the Midwest, we are entering our 114th summer of continuous operation. Every summer, we serve 1200 campers aged 7 to 17, with 220 staff who all come from across the country and around the world. Our season runs for 12 weeks, with campers in attendance for 2 and 4-week sessions.
