SARAH'S PICK: Summer Camp Counselor
JOB ID: Multiple Job IDs
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Multiple Deadlines
As awesome as an internship is, I think everyone should experience summer camp at some point in their lives. As someone who never went to camp as a kid, I was dead set on being a camp counselor during my junior year of college. Then I got mono and couldn't go- but that's a story for another day. There are many overnight counselor jobs on our site for camps all over the country. Having free room and board (and usually being in the middle of nowhere), you're able to save a decent amount. Plus you're building really valuable skills- working with a team, conflict resolution, adaptability, event planning, and communication. It's important to remember that recruiters aren't only focused on hiring people with internships. They like to see that you did something meaningful with your time and built transferable skills. This may be your last chance to ever go to summer camp- no summer vacation in the working world!
Here are a few of the camp jobs available:
- Easter Seals: Wisconsin Dells, WI- Camp Counselor
- Pretty Lake Camp: Mattawan, MI- Camp Counselor
- Camp Wayne for Girls: Preston Park, PA- Camp Counselor
- Iroquois Springs: Rock Hill, NY- Camp Counselor & Activity Specialist
- Tripp Lake Camp: Poland, ME- Camp Counselor
- Camp Greylock: Becket, MA- Camp Counselor
- Camp Starlight: Starlight, PA- Camp Counselor
