Summer Youth Program Employment

Make a difference in the summer: lead, plan, coach, and mentor at summer youth programs. The Summer Youth Program is a collection of dynamic summer day camps.

We look for highly motivated, caring, creative and energetic individuals to work as  recreation aides, therapeutic recreation aides, recreation supervisors and to volunteer in our Leaders-in-Training program. The work is challenging and stressful at times, but also fun and rewarding.

Duties for each position vary, but everyone will:

  • Be an active, positive role model for children
  • Develop creative camp programs and activity ideas
  • Lead children in camp activities (crafts, sports, games, camp-wide activities, etc.)
  • Establish behavioral expectations and appropriate consequences for campers

All staff members and volunteers must commit to participating in all the scheduled staff training dates. These training sessions are critical to:

  • Review the current job expectations and standards
  • Share ideas, concepts and learning experiences from co-workers  

Applications
