Summer camp is a place to grow, learn, and discover. Being a Camp Modin staff member is a tradition of caring, educating, guiding, and nurturing children that dates back over a century.

Modin is more than beautiful facilities and exciting programs. Modin is a community, and its people make the experience truly rewarding. When you work at Modin, you are more than just a staff member. You are a part of the Modin Team, a dedicated group of people from around the world whose main objective is to have fun, meet new people and make a difference in the lives of children. You will undergo an extensive training program prior to the start of the summer to hone your skills, learn about the campers, develop strong bonds with your peers, and to help you feel welcome in our community.

The lines of communication are always open and there are so many people available to assist and support you throughout the summer.
