Job Details
Working at Girl Scout Summer Camp

Girl scout camp is where many campers find their strengths and challenge themselves as they navigate activities on the water, at the campsite, and along the trail. Girl Scouts River Valleys’ camp sessions allow campers to develop a strong sense of self and positive values, build healthy relationships, seek challenges, and have fun while making memories of a lifetime!

Our campers treasure the relationships and sense of community they develop with our camp staff. Likewise, working at one of River Valleys’ Girl Scout Camps is a unique experience that will have a positive impact on you for the rest of your life. Your passion can make a difference in the lives of girls!

Counselors orient and welcome all campers to camp and help each girl plan her schedule. You ensure campers get up each morning, eat at each meal, have fun, participate in a variety of activities, and stay healthy, safe, and happy while at camp. You must have the ability to learn new skills in many different areas and have a passion to work directly with campers.

Working at our camps takes a special kind of person! You’ll be a great fit to work at our camps if you….

  • Are friendly and calm, especially under pressure.
  • Are a team player.
  • Love working outdoors.
  • Are good at switching gears and wearing many different hats.
