Summer Camp Jobs

We are looking for hardworking, fun men and women who are willing to spend their summer job at camp, changing the lives of deserving children!

Working at camp is one of the hardest jobs you will ever have, but also the most fun and rewarding!

Our focus is on friendship building, fun, safety, and character development. After all, a summer camp job is a real job! Our tight-knit camp community employs around 90 staff as camp counselors and other support positions (Maintenance, Kitchen, Office, etc). We are proud to have diverse staff from all backgrounds and from around the world to be part of a summer that will change their lives. Are you ready for an experience that will last a lifetime?

Note: Most positions are seasonal, starting in June and ending in August. Staff must be a minimum of 17 years of age and have graduated high school by the start of the summer season. The only exception for this requirement is for those who have succesfully completed the Camp Weaver Counselor in Training (CIT) program or equivalent.

Why work at Camp Weaver?

  • Make an impact on children
  • Make lifelong friends
  • Build your resume
  • Spend the summer hanging out with people from around the world
  • Learn new skills like archery, pottery, climbing, horseback riding, or skateboarding
  • Use your summer job to create meaningful change in a child life through camp!
  • Obtain valuable certifications like First Aid, CPR, lifeguarding, and archery
  • Gain an experience that truly lasts a lifetime!

Applicants go through a careful screening process that includes interviews, reference checks, a background check, and a drug screen. We strive to hire only those individuals who are caring, positive role models and are dedicated to putting our campers’ needs first. Working as a counselor is rewarding as well as physically and mentally demanding.

For the summer camp job, all of our staff are required to go through an intensive one-week training session to learn about issues such as bullying prevention, homesickness, character development, and much more. Some of our activities require further certifications and training such as archery, BB’s, climbing, and aquatics. During the summer, weekly in-services are held to ensure the safety of our campers. Of course, you must be comfortable working outdoors and with children for the majority of each day. Residential and commuter positions are available.
