Jobs at Park Summer Camps

Over the summer, we offer a variety of programs to campers of many different ages.  As unique as each of our programs are, our staffing needs differ with each week and each program.

For any of our Summer Camp Staff, we are looking for individuals who are positive team players and are willing to help out in any aspect of camp.  We expect our staff to be punctual, organized, responsible, honest and trustworthy - we want stellar role-models for our campers who help the campers have fun, grown and build their self-esteem.  Our team is full of people who love to play and work with children and have fun!

Junior Assistant Counselors

During our 6-week Day Camp, we do have a Junior Assistant Counselor program for youth who are 15 years old by June 1.  For many, this is their first "real job" and gives us an opportunity to mentor some of our youth closer to adulthood.

Junior Assistant Counselor's responsibilities are similar to an Assistant Counselor, but they are always working alongside another counselor and learning from their mentor/Head Counselor.  This position isn't for everyone and is not "one more super-senior year" of camp.  Just like any job, there are responsibilities and expectations to be met.

Youth interested in applying can submit an application by clicking the button below and filling out the application.  Please make sure to do so by April 15.  Interviews with each candidate will be scheduled at the end of May.
