Each summer, the Girl Scouts of Alaska camp team from across the U.S. works together toward one common mission — to help every girl who attends camp develop courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place.
Most summer staff will serve as Counselors. You'll work with a staff partner to plan and deliver outdoor activities to a group of 8-12 girls and supervise all aspects of your campers' day. Depending on camp, common activities include canoeing, kayaking, hiking, environmental education, arts and crafts, trying the climbing tower, team building, and STEM programming. Now hiring at these three camps:
• Camp Togowoods is located along the shores of Three Mile Lake in Wasilla. Residential camp positions include Cooks and Counselors in these areas: General, Waterfront/Boating, Climbing Wall Program, Art Program and Health Program.
• Camp Singing Hills is located on beautiful Edmonds Lake in Chugiak. Day camp positions include general Counselors.
• The Rural Alaska Program is a traveling day camp where Counselors fly between rural villages in small planes or travel by car in Southcentral Alaska.
Depending on camp and position, compensation starts at $2,400/season or $9.89/hour, plus room, board, and an end of season travel stipend for out-of-state resident camp staff. Applicants must make a commitment from May 21st to August 12th, 2019, be at least 18 years old, possess excellent character, exert enthusiasm, patience and understanding, work from a place of positivity, and are solution-oriented. To apply, fill out the online application (3 professional reference contacts are necessary). Interviews will be conducted by phone.
