Summer Camp Counselor and Magic-Maker

So what’s it like to work at Camp Augusta? We’re glad you asked! Working at camp is an experience unlike any other. Our days are beautiful, demanding, inspiring, educational, hilarious, frustrating, silly, surprising, intimate, active and most importantly, full of opportunity.  Staff have the opportunity to learn and teach an astounding variety of camp activities. We offer over 150 different activities, and we are always excited about any creative contributions you bring to the table.  Staff also have the opportunity to develop themselves personally and professionally. In our 3.5 week staff training and throughout the summer, staff can learn and practice progressive models of child development and counseling, communication techniques like clean communication and Nonviolent Communication, diverse leadership styles as well as how to live in a tight-knit community.  Come with an open-mind, a trusting-heart and plenty of ambition, and leave with a soul on fire! Are you up for the challenge? :)

Job Overview

Discover the wish, wonder, and surprise of living with and supporting five campers in a cabin in the woods for the summer.  Learn more than you ever thought you could about relating to children in a manner that empowers their growth and independence.  Counselors will also serve as activity instructors and take the lead on maintenance for a few activity areas upon gaining experience.  All counselors teach activities, but you tell us which ones you’re most passionate about — there are over 150 choices, plus your creative additions. Here’s a link to our ACTIVITIES page to get a taste of what we have to offer!

We can teach you the activities that most spark your excitement and creativity.  And you can teach us if there are new activities that you would like to create here! Counselors are the heartbeat of camp.  Most counselors spend a session or two outside of the cabin as well, contributing to programming or other areas of interest.

Special Benefits

Housing and meals are provided. Live in a cabin, yurt or treehouse! Meals are made fresh, locally sourced and organic.

Staff must be available from May 18 - August 14. Staff training is 3.5 weeks long followed by 9 weeks of main season camp. Opportunities are available to work pre and post season assisting with family camps and school groups before staff training (April and May) and after the summer (August and September).

The depth of training and ongoing professional support you will receive as a Camp Augusta staff member (in the realms of education, personal development and communication, and activity skills) can offer far-reaching benefits for many other parts of your life.
