When you accept a summer camp job at Bryn Mawr, you’ll earn a competitive salary — and that’s only the beginning! Here are just a few of the benefits that you’ll enjoy as a member of our staff.
At camp, there’s fun for everyone, camper and counselor alike! Our staff members treasure the friends they make, the new things they get to try and do, and the opportunity to be part of more than a century of Bryn Mawr tradition. Living in a cabin, splashing in the lake, performing onstage, playing staff sports, singing around the campfire — there are so many ways for staff to join in the spirit and community of camp life!
At Bryn Mawr, we truly believe that the best leaders are lifelong learners. As a member of our staff, you’ll have opportunities for training with some of the brightest minds in youth development. You’ll also be supported by experienced mentors who are there to help you learn, grow, and make the most of your summer at camp.
Employers in all fields are looking for applicants with “soft skills” that aren’t taught in a college classroom — communication, collaboration and teamwork, adaptability, empathy, and leadership.
Working at camp is the perfect way to hone these abilities, which will help you stand out from the crowd and excel in any career you choose.
Working at camp means living in a community! At camp, we will provide you with housing, meals/snacks, and transportation (and necessities like laundry and linens).
We value our staff and show our appreciation to staff in many different ways:
• referral bonuses, raffles, special activities
• assistance with job-specific requirements such as Pennsylvania nursing licensure and lifeguard certification
• supporting internship requirements or writing letters of recommendation
