OMA&D Academic Counseling Services

The YMCA is hiring!

The YMCA are seeking candidates who meet the following criteria:

  • Willing to live and work at camp in the summer from ~June 15 through August 26.   They’ll be living in cabins that are fully enclosed, have electricity and bathrooms indoors – this is not rustic camping!  There are typically two counselors in each cabin and 12 campers.
  • At least 18 years old
  • Have completed high school, prefer at least one year of college
  • Prefer candidates with experience working with children

Here are some of the perks and benefits of being a summer camp counselor:

  • Food and lodging are included in the job, so you don’t have to pay rent or pay for your food.
  • Make friends with other staff from all over the world.  15 years later, I am still very close with the friends I made when I was a camp counselor!
  • Gain experience applicable to management, education, recreation, and many more careers.  There is not a job available to college students that will offer more opportunities to learn and grow!

You can find a lot more information (and the application) on our hiring blog.
