Camp Staff

Camp staff is an experience that is truly unforgettable. It is a chance to spend your whole summer working at a beautiful camp teaching kids and having fun. Every day is fully rewarding to you as staff and to the campers whose lives you have made a difference. Camp work is often demanding as we keep a packed schedule running for the campers we serve but the opportunities, rewards, and experiences available to you on camp staff are endless. Serving on camp staff is the best way to spend a summer.
