Summer Staff at Camp Stevens lead youth on unforgettable adventures through our 256 acres of oak and pine woodland. When not working directly with youth, camp staff support operations like trail maintenance, kitchen help, garden, and light maintenance. There's a lot more information about who we are and what we do on our website but here are some important things to note:
- Camp Stevens provides full food and lodging benefit: Meals in the dining hall and full access to camp pantry, fridge, coffee, tea, paper goods, housewares, etc. Our food is local, garden-grown, and mostly organic... also it's delicious.
- Applicants belonging to underrepresented/marginalized groups can apply for an additional $1000 per summer of grant funding.
- Paid trainings are provided including First Aid/CPR, Lifeguarding, Archery, Belaying, Youth Development, Conflict Resolution, Restorative Justice, Diversity/Equity/Inclusion, Program Development, etc.
- Unlike most camp jobs, summer staff each have their own room to call home for the summer, relax and sleep in except when on overnight adventures with their campers (5-6 times a summer). Minimum Commitment is June 6-July 22. There are options to extend through August, into fall or all the way through the following summer.
- Our summer staff have a great deal of trust and autonomy built into their jobs: you're not a babysitter doing prepackaged crafts... you're the leader of a team whose mission is to create an unforgettable week of outdoor adventure for the youth in your care.
- We are affiliated with the Episcopal Church - don't let that stop you! There is no faith requirement to work at Camp Stevens and the Episcopal Church is rad (google it!). You are welcome here as your whole self.
- 18+ Required, 21+ Preferred
