Now Hiring – Summer Staff

Seeking amazing people to join our summer team to finish out the summer season with us. You’ll have a rotating schedule of activities to oversee and engage with campers in, participate in all-camp events, and be a resource for our campers to explore their passions and interests.

While some might call you a counselor or teacher or childcare specialist, we know that those titles are too limiting for the role you’ll take on this summer with Steve & Kate’s Camp. We know you’re a role model, an educator, a facilitator, a guide, a friend, a co-learner, a safe haven, a resource, an accomplice (aka “side-kick”), a connector, a big kid, and more. If you feel the need, choose whatever title you’d like. What’s important to us is how you engage with our campers, families, and fellow staff members.

Providing a self-directed learning environment for children takes staff willing to jump in and join the camper’s adventures. To let them lead you. You’ll forge tight bonds and learn the names of hundreds of campers – and a few imaginary friends. You’ll help cultivate future film producers and fashion designers (don’t forget to ask for autographs!). And perhaps even discover new passions of your own as you learn alongside campers. So get ready to be elbow deep in flour in the Culinary Studio, upside down with a hand drill in a cardboard clock tower in the Build Studio, and tuning ukuleles in the Music Studio. The first recipe try may be inedible (but just wait for the next version!), the window on the clock tower might turn into a door and the ukulele tuning…? No one’s judging. It’s about the process, not the product. And yes, it’s a real job.

It’s not too good to be true. There are reasons the campers go home with prizes and you go home with a paycheck. There are studios to clean, jumpies to wrestle, lunch to serve, a start time that may require an alarm clock, Game Shows to host, and, above all, amazing young people that you have the awesome responsibility to keep safe (this means slip and slide NOT surf and smash!). So, when you see the two-for-one deal on flip-flops and running shoes, you may want to grab both – and throw in an extra bottle of sunscreen.

Are you ready for the adventure? We can’t wait to hear from you! Now hiring for our SF locations. Starts ASAP.
