Why Work at a Camp?
- You love the outdoors.
- You love hiking and biking and
- And people say you're great with kids.
If you relate to this, then there's the perfect place waiting for
you: summer camp. More than half a million college students will find
their way from their campus to camp this summer to fill openings at
camps across the United States.
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.
