Counselors

As a Counselor you will be assigned a group of 4-5 elementary-age campers. You will help these campers at each of the stations throughout camp, taking part in all of the activities alongside them and lending a hand as they learn new skills, play games, and complete crafts. This is a position that requires patience, maturity, and a willingness to closely follow instructions. Our younger campers will look to you as an example as they are working through new challenges.

To qualify as a Counselor, you must:

  • Be entering 9th grade or above (in the ‘24-’25 academic year) and be at least 14 years old by Mar 1, 2024
  • Be available from 8:00-1:30 every day for week-long summer camps; 8:00-3:30 every day for day camps
  • Have access to a bank account for compensation
  • Be willing to complete a background check and a training session before camp begins

You might be a great Counselor if you:

  • Enjoy spending time with younger children
  • Enjoy cooking
  • Are patient, friendly, mature, and flexible
  • Can follow instructions and adjust to help with all of the needs of the camp
  • Are willing to help keep our space clean, including wiping down tables, washing dishes, and other responsibilities as assigned

Counselors earn a stipend of $75 / day for week-long camps and $100 / day for day camps.

I will be hiring approximately 3 Counselors for each session of camp.

Camp Assistant

As Camp Assistant you will work alongside Jess to facilitate all camp activities. You will help with set-up, registration, administration, and clean-up at each camp session. Depending on your experience with children and kitchen skills, you may have the opportunity to lead games, instruct craft sessions, or teach cooking modules. 

This is a position that requires patience, maturity, and a willingness to closely follow instructions. On any given day, you may be asked to greet our families as they arrive, teach a lesson, clean up spills, step in if we have a Counselor out for the day, wash dishes, and / or support a camper who needs extra attention. A Camp Assistant should be willing to take part in all of the responsibilities that come with running a camp. 

To qualify as a Camp Assistant, you must:

  • At a minimum, be entering 11th grade (in the ‘24-’25 academic year). This position would be appropriate for a mature high school student, college student, or beyond.
  • Be available from 8:00-2:00 every day for week-long summer camps; 7:45-4:00 every day for day camps
  • Have access to a bank account for compensation
  • Be willing to complete a background check and a training session before camp begins

You might be a great Camp Assistant if you:

  • Are looking to expand your leadership skills
  • Enjoy cooking and teaching
  • Are patient, friendly, mature, and flexible
  • Can follow instructions and make the safety of our campers your top priority
  • Are willing to pivot each day as the requirements of camp demand – including (but not limited to) filling in for absent Counselors, teaching modules, and cleaning up / washing dishes

Camp Assistants will be paid $16 to $18 / hour, based on experience. I will be hiring 1 Camp Assistant for each session of camp.
