summer camp workSummer camp is a memorable experience. The aroma of s'mores cooking over a campfire while camp songs are sung in the background. The experience of living alongside a bunk makes for several days at a time. 

These experiences are often many adults' fondest memories as a child. The very thought of camp can bring up feelings of nostalgia or that sweet welling up of emotion from when times were more simple. 

Work at a Summer Camp in North Carolina

One way to capture those feelings and help foster those experiences for others is by working at a summer camp. There are so many challenges and rewards when working with children and youth. 

Camp work is a great opportunity to make a positive lifelong impact on the younger generation. There are a wide variety of jobs that can be found at summer camps in North Carolina. 

Summer Staff Jobs

There are so many opportunities during the summer for things such as travel, schooling, and internships. However, working for a summer camp during the season is not only a great opportunity to make money, but also to build a strong resume and learn valuable leadership skills. 

In addition to day-to-day work, you will get to experience camp life from a different perspective and build lasting bonds with your coworkers. 

Year-Round Staff Positions

Because summer camp doesn’t end after the campers and summer staffers go home, there are plenty of important jobs that keep things running throughout the year. Whether it be maintenance, marketing, or the leadership team, there are plenty of things that must be taken care of that are outside of the scope of the summer season.
