Profile Jobs

Our Jobs

Our summer staff is made up of nearly 275 individuals in a wide range of positions.


We are seeking college-aged students to live in the bunks with our campers and work as general counselors or activity specialists in one of our daily activity areas. You and your co-counselors will live with a group of campers in a cabin. You will be their mentor, companion, and big brother or sister as you guide them through their daily activities, including meals, special events, and out-of-camp trips.


Positions fill up quickly. Please be aware that all staff should be able to arrive on June 16 to begin orientation, and that camp ends on August 9. Certain positions may require you to arrive earlier than the 16th for certification and/or additional orientation. You would be required to remain at camp until the end.

Bear in mind, we don't expect you to be certified or professional at these activities (it would be great if you were), but we do expect you to be passionate about one or more of them. It's that passion and desire to share it with children that will set you apart.
