Any applications received after this date will be wait listed. Applications will be reviewed and a limited number of applicants are selected for interviews with the Camp Directors and the Program Manager. Due to the large volume of applicants, not every applicant receives an interview. The selection process is based on the information the applicant provides on the application. The more information provided regarding experience and extra curricular activities will allow a more accurate evaluation. Generally, applicants who are at least 16 years old and have some experience with working with children will be considered.
Interviews are conducted in early April and jobs are offered by the end of April. The initial hiring process is completed by May 1, 2020. If you do not receive an interview, we will retain your application through the summer season and if we have openings later in the season we may contact you for an interview at a later date.
