Another Great Camp Story from Saginaw by Ari

Fifth-Year Camper

Looking for a rewarding summer camp job? Whether it’s a bunk counselor or a specialist, Camp Saginaw offers many summer camp jobs and internships. We’re proud of our excellent and diverse staff and are committed to offering the best camping experience possible. In order to reach this goal, we realize a camp needs quality staff that has a sincere interest in making a positive influence in a child’s life.

From wake-up to bedtime, a summer camp counselor is challenged everyday with the rewarding experience of leading a bunk and serving as a mentor. The primary responsibility of a Saginaw staff member is to ensure each child’s general welfare. This includes handling disputes, helping manage camper homesickness, and being present and available to them when they need you.

Staff orientation begins five days prior to the arrival of campers. During this time, we hold meetings, workshops, and prepare for the arrival of the campers. Topics discussed, include but are not limited to, homesickness, staff policies, chain of command, and emergency procedures. You will also experience a “Day in the Life of a Camper”, where you travel through camp and participate in daily activities.

Fun! That is a word normally associated as a goal for the campers. However, at Camp Saginaw, we also want make sure that your summer camp employment is FUN as well. Throughout the summer, there are many staff activities and nights out in which we encourage our staff to have a good time.

Each summer camp counselor and specialist is provided with four and a half days off, divided in two sets of two and a quarter days off (i.e. depart at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday and return at curfew on Friday, which is 12:00 a.m.). Staff are also provided with approximately one early night per week (i.e. depart at 7:00 p.m. and return at curfew). When staff is not on nightly duty they are permitted to leave camp at 9:00 p.m., provided that the evening activity has been completed and return at curfew. All staff is required to attend Sunday night staff meetings, which are all-in nights.

Along with many locations in the United States, our summer camp counselors and specialists originate from all over the world. We provide free internet access so that staff can regularly check email. In addition, we will help you further your career with letters of recommendations and we also offer resume optimization services. A summer camp position can look great on your resume if it is written properly.
