Applications are reviewed and a limited number of applicants are selected for interviews with the Summer Camp Director and the Program Coordinator. 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.

Camp interviews are conducted in May and jobs are offered by the end of May. 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.
