Summer Staff Employment

Our staff is made up primarily of high school and college students. Many were once campers at the SBCC Day Camp themselves, which gives our camp a great sense of tradition and continuity. All staff are chosen for their maturity, commitment to children’s growth and a love of the camp community. All counselors have completed orientation, training, and CPR certification before the campers arrive.

Staff Selection Process


Applications that are received by March 1st will be considered in the first round of the selection process. Hiring may continue through the spring, but many positions will be filled from the first round of applicants.


References are not required if an applicant was a counselor, a CIT or a substitute counselor last year. All other applications must have three (3) references included. For references, we are requesting that they be people who have seen/hired you to work, preferably with children. We would prefer no relatives, if possible.


All participants must be going into junior year of high school in the fall or older to be considered for a paid summer position. CIT’s must be going into sophomore year or higher of high school in the fall. All Staff must be CPR and First Aid certified. Training will be provided to all staff prior to start of camp, if needed.


Contracts will start to be offered starting in late March and may continue through the spring, if necessary.


Hiring staff for the summer takes a lot of time due to the volume of applications and the screening and interviewing process. If you face a time limit with another position, please let us know.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Fennell at kfennell31@gmail.com.
