The Employee Experience
Working at Camp Lochearn is an experience, unlike any other job. Staff will meet and work with people from all over the United States and all over the world. We live by our camp motto and foster a community of kindness for our campers. Our staff members not only have a passion for working with children and for working at camp but are also mentors who help to shape young girls' lives over the course of four weeks. The skills, friendships, and work experience you will gain at Camp Lochearn is unmatched by any typical summer job and is an experience that lasts a lifetime.
Our staff members are well-rounded, diverse, and passionate individuals. We are seeking college-age or older individuals who love working with kids, have solid communication skills, and want to spend their summer at camp. We pride ourselves on providing a camp program focused on skill development, inclusion, and personal growth, and we look for staff who are interested in facilitating that experience for campers.
Room and Board
Room and board is included for the summer. Cabin staff live with between 4 - 8 campers, and co-cabin staff and non-cabin staff live in cabins with 1 - 4 other staff members. Bathrooms are community-style bathrooms located centrally in camp.
Over the course of the summer, staff will have two 30-hour periods off each session, and days off before camp starts and between sessions. We have van shuttles that take staff members to and from the nearby towns, where they can shop, go out to dinner, or catch a bus to nearby Burlington, VT, or Boston. On staff days off, we provide a ski boat and boat driver for them to enjoy skiing and wakeboarding, as well as open our other facilities up for them to use in their free time.
