Have an excuse to spend the summer at camp and act like a kid again.

The Job

We appreciate your interest in CYO Camp, and please realize from the beginning that working at camp is more than a job! A job as a CYO Camp staff member is extraordinarily demanding and you should only consider applying for a position if you love working with children. Life at camp requires staff members to sacrifice their normal living habits and serve as role models to our campers. This job is not for everyone! Successful counselors are dynamic, energetic and patient people who thrive on being outdoors and recognize that children need support and encouragement to be responsible adults.


Life Long Friends

While role modeling for campers is the most important aspect of your job, being a counselor also provides an incredible opportunity to develop friendships with other staff. CYO Camp is a very close knit community with over 70 years of history and traditions and there is something special about living and working with people who share your enthusiasm for working with children. Our returning staff love staff week where they have an opportunity to meet new friends and reunite with old friends. At the end of the summer you will be amazed at the friendships you have made. See photos from past summers here.
