Camp Horizons is all about people, young and old, becoming responsible members of our worldwide community while enjoying life to its fullest. As a member of the camp staff you will have the opportunity to improve the quality of life for yourself and others. We are looking for people who want to work, play, and interact with children in an outdoor setting. We need people who are highly professional, talented and energetic. Our 50 staff members come from across the United States and around the world. Most of our campers come from the East Coast, and some are international. We celebrate diversity and cherish individuality!
Camp counselors have a tremendous responsibility in caring for children's daily needs and by serving as role models. In addition to an employment contract, all staff members (and campers) sign our Community Agreement, which outlines our accepted rights and responsibilities as members of the Camp Horizons community. This agreement goes beyond our usual policies and procdures to address issues of how we view and treat others and ourselves while at camp.
Working at camp is about putting other people's needs above your own. Previous staff members frequently report that working at camp was the hardest thing they ever did, but also the most rewarding. You will learn to know yourself better, experience the infinite rewards of working with children, and exercise your smile every day. Camp gives kids a world of good, and counselors are the ones that make this happen!
