Working at Summer Camps Is A Great Summer Job For High School And College Students

Each summer we bring over 500 students and talented, passionate people to work at our camps. General camp counselors are invaluable staff members who spend most of the day with one group of boys or girls.

Become a Camp Counselor

Camp counselors are role models who assist and motivate children, whether they are trying to learn a new skill, or they have concerns about an issue or idea. Throughout the day general counselors monitor and participate in the group’s activities and do everything in their power to make each of their campers’ summer the most memorable yet. General Camp Counselors should enjoy working with children, have a high level of patience, a solid work ethic, and be open minded and fun!


Our camps offer a wide variety of athletics including basketball, flag football, soccer, tennis, baseball, lacrosse, volleyball and more! Generally, athletics are taught by specialty coaches who are proficient in an individual sport. They organize and implement instruction and coach our campers.


While some of our campers are accomplished athletes, instruction and good sportsmanship are valued over performance so that all campers are equipped with the skills and confidence to be able to play sports and enjoy the experience.
