Waterski/Wakeboard Counselors

From the moment you arrive you will realize that we mean it when we say that you are part of the family. Yes, you'll work hard, but just remember, the job we are asking you to do is play with kids. Be their big brother or big sister, and become a part of their lives. Many of our counselors return, sometimes even after being away for a summer or two, because from the moment you arrive we strive to treat our staff fairly and embrace them as if they've been with us for years. We encourage you to participate and have just as much of an awesome summer experience as the campers. We work in teams so you are never isolated, and we are open to all good ideas and suggestions that might make for a more rewarding camp experience. Lot's of camps talk about fostering a family atmosphere but we mean it! Our counselors have a habit of getting together and traveling together after camp. We have many counselors who decided to become roommates or get full-time jobs together. In fact, we have had several couples in the last few years who met at camp and later got (or are getting) married.

Job Overview

There’s no place better to ski and board than on beautiful Raquette Lake! Waterski, Wakeboard, Kneeboard, Tubing, Wakesurf…our kids do it all and so will you. Live in a bunk with 2-3 other counselors and 6-10 kids who have come to camp for a full 7 week session, but spend your days driving our Nautique boats, teaching children and having the summer of your life. We’re looking for skilled and responsible young men and women who’ll love nothing more than to share their passion for skiing with the kids.

If you are experienced in skiing, boarding, boat driving, etc. we want to hear from you. Apply directly at raquettelake.com.

Arrival date is June 10 and we go home on August 13.

  • You will make many life-long friends and develop life skills through leading, guiding, and caring for campers. You will learn from high school and college coaches, professors and teachers, pro athletes, and professional artists.
  • Our pay is highly competitive, workers compensation is provided, and room and board is covered.
  • There is high-speed internet access available in counselor lounges and you will have access to many of our facilities during your free time.
  • Alternatively, you can choose to disconnect from the wired world and enjoy the natural splendor all around you.
  • All counselors have at least 6 days off during the season and 4 nights off each week.
  • Did we mention that you get to spend your summer playing with kids, doing sports and activities you used to do as a kid, or always wanted to try but never got around to?
