Why Work at Camp?

Build Your Resume

Regardless of your college major, all camp experiences allow you to learn and develop skills that will enhance your job marketability. The benefits go far beyond a paycheck, too. Experience as a camp counselor translates into excellent management and personnel skills

Earn Internship Credits

Many Colleges and universities will accept summer camp employment as credits hours towards required internships. We will assist in satisfying the terms of the credit requirements for most majors including sports administration/management, education, physical education, nursing, athletic training, and more.

Make New Friends

After two months of working together, you’ll have met amazing people and shared an incredible experience together. You will meet some of your closest friends through camp; people who have similar interests, values, and know how to have fun.

Gain Meaningful Life Experiences

Camp is more than just a summer job, it’s a life changing experience. It’s fun, freeing, and an incredibly positive way to spend your summer. Every day at camp you’ll learn things about yourself, about other people, and the world.

Networking

Working at a summer camp opens up endless possibilities. You will meet people from all over the US and the world. Working at camp is a great opportunity to develop an international network of friends and contacts.

A Typical Day

Your day will start when you wake up in your bunk overlooking beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. Once you brush your teeth and throw on your clothes, Mainland camp staff will participate in one of three activities with their campers — Polar Bear (jumping in the lake…brrrr!), Boot Camp (an exercise class to get your heart pumping), or Cheetah Club (a quick jog around camp which can turn into a race with one of your campers). Island camp staff will participate in an all-camp flag raising.

Next, enjoy a delicious breakfast with your bunk in the dining hall followed by a campus meeting. Now, you are ready to spend the day moving around from activity to activity with your bunk (general counselors) or to teach your sport to our campers (activity specialists). After a few hours of fun, lunch is served followed by rest hour. This is the time to reset for an afternoon of exciting activities and instruction.

Before you know it, it is dinner time! After dinner, you will enjoy the shenanigans of another campus meeting. You never know what will happen!! Finally, you and your bunk will participate in an exciting evening activity. And, then it’s time to get ready for bed. And, lights out!
