Help Make the World a Better Place

A summer at camp can change your life. There are so many reasons to work at camp:

  • Make a positive impact on children
  • Professional training in child management, group dynamics, leadership skills and risk assessment.
  • Develop and use your teaching skills.
  • First Aid, CPR and Life guarding Certifications
  • Personal growth and development
  • And much more

Camp has a spirit that is hard to describe. You make life long friends with people from around the country and all over the world. The days are long and the weeks are short. It’s hard work but much better than any job inside all summer. Enjoy a summer on Lake Champlain. You’ll never forget it.
