Joining the Camp Backcountry team means becoming a part of a community of enthusiastic, hardworking, and creative individuals who come together with a mutual love for the outdoors and a common goal to educate and inspire the next generation.
Each summer, we hire a strong team of nature camp counselors, art camp counselors, and horse camp counselors. Our staff is highly qualified, with many having previous childcare experience or are pursuing a degree in education or a related field. All counselors undergo multiple background checks, are certified in CPR and First Aid and complete a week-long in-the-field training covering topics of child development, positive guidance strategies, curriculum development, and how to guide children in an outdoor environment.
Being a counselor at Camp Backcountry is guaranteed to be one of the most fun and memorable summers of your life, while simultaneously is a very serious job that will provide you with invaluable job and life skills.
We are currently looking for hard-working and passionate individuals to join our 2023 team. Want to spend your summer exploring in the woods, searching for the Backcountry Bigfoot, singing camp songs, and competing in Color Wars, all while making a difference in the world? Apply here today!
