This is no ordinary camp job. In fact, working at Somerset should hardly be seen as a job, but instead as a passion. The summer camp experience is unique and few environments can match both its spirit and the positive impact it has on children.
At Somerset, you will be a part of a once in a lifetime opportunity. An opportunity to open a camp, build a community, and create traditions from the ground floor up.
We want compassionate role models who are full of joy, have tons of energy, and love working with young people. We want dreamers, creators, leaders, and risk takers. Is that you?
We believe that the success of our campers depends on the quality of our staff and their health, happiness, and ability to be successful in their own right. A summer spent at camp should be equally rewarding for the staff as it is for the campers.
That’s why we are committed to providing all our counselors with the opportunity to flourish not only in their cabins and activity areas, but to challenge themselves in the same way we encourage our campers to do so. We want our staff to not only display their amazing talents but to find the ones they didn’t know they had.
The summer begins with an intensive, week-long staff orientation to review all the policies, procedures, and expectations for a summer at camp. Additionally, this week provides the important opportunity for staff bonding and the Somerset community to take shape. During the summer, we are committed to seeing that our staff is well rested, well fed, and have time to connect and socialize with one another.
