Job Overview

Based on our 250-acre campus in Rhinebeck, New York, Camp Ramapo is Ramapo for Children’s residential summer camp that serves young people with a diverse set of needs and abilities. Some of our campers are on the Autism Spectrum, while others require greater support due to trauma, mental health challenges, or other disabilities. Each summer, we hire students and new professionals from around the world to work as counselors, mentors, instructors and caregivers for our residential campers.

As a Ramapo staff member, you will develop the skills you need to succeed with a broad range of young people. You will learn to understand behavior as communication. You will learn how to create environments that celebrate strengths and enable all young people to feel a sense of belonging. You will work hard every day you are here, and learn more than you ever thought possible. 

A summer at Ramapo acts as an internship experience for many of our staff. We are happy to work with our staff to fulfill the internship requirements of their college program, including hours and supervision.
