How old do you have to be to apply for camp?
For the large majority of our positions, applicants must be one-year removed from high school in order to work camp. That means they have to graduated high school the year before the summer they are applying for.
When does Staff Training begin?
Staff Training officially kicks off on May 25, 2022 and that is when the majority of our Summer Staff arrive. There are a few positions that may arrive a few days early, but we'll be sure to let you know if you're in one of those positions.
I have an event I need to attend during the summer, can I leave and come back to camp?
We take these situations on a case-by-case basis, but for the most part, we ask that Summer Staff not leave camp outside of designated off days. We do make exceptions for weddings of immediate family and of course family emergencies.
