READY FOR THE BEST SUMMER OF YOUR LIFE?!
Make An Impact
Working as a summer camp counselor goes far beyond just a regular job; it’s an experience that is meaningful and will have a significant impact on both yourself and your campers. You will change lives. You will become a positive role model for young children who will look to you for guidance, support, advice and inspiration as they navigate their time at camp. Create lasting memories and relationships as you play on the bay, problem solve and teach important life skills. They will never forget you and you will never forget them. Camp has never been more important in the development of young people’s lives and you can be a part of this process.
Boost Your Resume
Unlike a typical internship or summer job, your role at camp will be diverse, ever-changing and require a wide range of skills and personality traits. As a result, your experience at camp will make you significantly more employable in the future as you develop your problem solving, communication, leadership and a multitude of additional professional skills. Working at camp can be hard and will stretch you beyond your comfort zone, allowing you to grow as an individual and as a professional. You will likely finish the summer with more grit, resilience and a better sense of who you are.
For those considering any kind of career in a child-related or recreation field, camp offers an obvious and significant resume building block. For those considering other fields of work, camp will give you a great line on a resume that may well lead to the most interesting and animated interview discussions. That personal connection may well make all the difference!
Experience the Land of Pleasant Living
On any given day at ‘work’ you’ll be surrounded by nature, the Chesapeake Bay, sunshine, starry night skies, the forest and fields and more. Not bad for a summer office, not a filing cabinet or copy machine in sight!
Enjoy days off exploring Maryland’s Eastern Shore Historic towns, lounge on Betterton’s Beach, hike trails at Turners Creek, Eastern Neck Island, Chestertown’s Rails to Trails. Stroll down quaint streets and enjoy meals overlooking the water. The memories, the friends, the stories, the experience where life on the Eastern Shore is the norm. Join us!
