The salary is competitive and there is a $400 bonus for those who stay all summer. Unlike other summer jobs where you immediately spend the money you earn, summer camp staff are able to save their summer salary.
Counselors take off two nights per week and a day and a half between sessions. In addition, counselors have a free period for an hour each activity day. We have a counselor den for our counselors to relax, use their phones and computers during this time.
Housing and meals eaten at camp are free. Laundry service is provided twice a session. Your staff uniform shirts that are worn on opening and closing day are free. You can use many camp facilities during your free time, as long as it does not take away from a class or camper.
We require all of our staff to attend staff orientation which is typically the last week in May and into the first week in June. We strongly encourage Senior Counselors to work the entire summer which is 8 weeks and will accept Senior Counselors to work 4 consecutive weeks. All Junior Counselors must work 4 consecutive weeks.
We call our community the camp bubble. We strive to put Christ first in everything we do and talk about Him daily. While it may be hard to be a Christian in the “real world”, it’s cool to be a Christian at camp. The administration will pour into you and your walk with Christ during your time here.
Every counselor lives in a cabin with 10-16 campers and 2-3 other staff members. You’ll love the energy and excitment of cabin life. You can see what the cabins look like on Camp Skyline’s Cabins and Crossing the River pages.
