Summer Camp Jobs: Why Work at a Camp?

Does this describe you or someone you know?

You love the outdoors. You love hiking and biking and sailing. And — your good friend says you're great with kids.

If you relate to this, then there's the perfect place waiting for you: summer camp. Over half a million college students and teachers will find their way from their schools to camp this summer to fill openings at camps across the United States.

Imagine a job where almost anything is possible:

  • Live, play, and work in the great outdoors.
  • Make new friends.
  • Become a child's hero.
  • Learn leadership skills.

Camp jobs offer invaluable skill-building, leadership, training, and enrichment opportunities that can’t be found anywhere else! Regardless of your college major, camp experiences allow you to learn and develop skills that will enhance your job marketability. The benefits go far beyond a paycheck, too. Business executives often note that experience as a camp counselor translates into excellent management and personnel skills. College credit can sometimes be obtained from working at camp.
