The Benefits of a Camp Job are Endless

Every year, an estimated 1.2 million Americans find a job at camp. A job at a camp not only offers fun, the outdoors and cash, but also the chance to enhance your resume with experiences that will last a lifetime. Camp jobs complement the academic skills that are learned in school with experiential, life-based skills. They also prepare students for corporate America by teaching leadership, team-building and problem-solving skills-traits that are key to success in the 21st century.

Summer camp is also a special place where children and adults come together and form a unique community. In this setting, young adults working as counselors, and other staff have the opportunity to:

  • Master real-life, problem-solving skills;
  • Have a significant and positive influence in the lives of children;
  • Develop greater self-understanding;
  • Participate in experiences that enhance personal growth;
  • Develop and expand a network of peer relations
