Job Description

Looking for a summer job that makes a difference, join our 2022 camp staff today! Our resident camp is a place where energetic and passionate staff come together to provide a safe and positive learning environment for girls ages 6-17. At Girl Scouts of GCNWI camps we have a wide variety of opportunities for you. Campers and staff alike spend the summer living outdoors, trying new activities, gaining independence, and building long-lasting relationships.

As a Program Leader you will be critical to the success of the summer as part of the leadership team and the first-line resource for problem solving for campers and counselors. In this role you will supervise and guide campers and counselors through progressive learning experiences in an assigned specialty area and live on site in a camper unit.

The nitty-gritties: Paid summer camp position with 24 hours off each week and breaks every day. Includes room and board (yes that’s right you will live on camp and get all your food provided for free!), First Aid & CPR certifications, and a rocking camp staff shirt! 

The real perks & career benefits: At camp you will quickly discover that the more you put into the experience, the more rewarding it will be. Develop your outdoor skills and leadership to help build your resume away from the pressures of your typical everyday routine. You will be a valuable member of this camp community, where your voice will be heard and you will receive the support you need to have a fun and successful summer.

Pay range: $680-720/week; dependent on qualifications and experience
