    WORK HOURS AND DATES

    The camp environment is demanding, requiring intense dedication and work ethic from each staff member. In this section, we attempt to give you a detailed snapshot of the camp schedule. Depending on the time of summer or the specific week or day, the needs of camp and resulting staff hours may vary. We seek and make offers to staff who we believe are capable of thriving in this environment and contributing to camp’s success.

    The camp day runs, on average, 4 hours for Extended Care staff. Each camp varies based on specific needs of the site, though Extended Care staff generally arrive between 2:30pm and 3:00pm and leave between 6:00pm and 6:30pm. Though each camp’s schedule is unique, below is a sample work week:
