Thank you for your interest in employment at Camp

Our Camps have a strong history of providing great summer experiences for our Campers. Following is an outline of our requirements, what you can expect, and tips for success. Current Y employees, former employees, and new applicants all complete the online Camp Employment Application.

Applying for a position at camp is a competitive, multiple stage process.  The number of staff we hire is based on camper enrollment. Additionally, successful staff from previous years have the opportunity to reapply. Due to the popularity of employment at Camp, each year we have more Applicants than positions available.  However, we always have some positions available.  

During the Application and Interview process, if you meet the required standards you may be chosen to move on to the next stage. If you are not chosen to move on, we will do our best to notify you.
