Work at Camp
Why work at Summer at Friends?
Imagine a summer spent working with staff and campers who are excited to try new things, explore, create, and have fun!
Top 3 Reasons to work at Camp:
1. Memories to last a lifetime
2. Great experience working with campers and fellow staff
3. No Nights and Weekends! You’ll have set hours leaving plenty of time to enjoy other summer activities
Plus, working at camp is a great way to grow your resume. You’ll have experience working with a variety of people cooperatively in a team environment, providing great customer service and communicating with campers, families, and peers. Our camp staff are empowered to lead activities, cultivate an inclusive and safe environment, and to develop problem solving skills.

Need to complete an internship?
Our camp leadership team will work with approved candidates to secure the necessary permission from your school. Once placed and approved, we will connect you with your mentor and additional responsibilities to help you meet your internship requirements. This might be related to special projects, research, or a special report. This allows you to work at camp, build your resume, and continue to pursue your academic goals. Internship placements are limited and considered on a case-by-case basis. Contact the office at email@example.com for more information.
How do I apply?
First, and most importantly, we encourage you to apply early! We begin filling positions on a rolling basis, until all Summer at Friends positions are filled. Applying early will allow you to be considered for as many positions as possible.
We accept camp staff applications beginning in December. Applications are completed in the Camp Staff Portal. Once your application is received and reviewed, we make a decision on who to interview. Those selected will receive an email with an opportunity to schedule an interview. We typically start interviews in late January.
If you are offered a position, you’ll need to complete some pre-employment paperwork, background checks, and training. Our Camp Office Staff will assist you in this process. Our goal is to get paperwork returned and completed as soon as possible.
