Summer Camp Counselor

Job Location:

Nevada City, CA, United States

Job Description:

A dash of wish, a smattering of wonder and a sprinkle of surprise. An open heart, a curious mind and an inability to tell the difference between your skin color, your constant dirt tan and the paint and glitter permanently embedded on your body. A wacky playfulness, an inspirational spirit and a never-ending supply of empathy. Special wake-ups, unpredictable cabin activities, magical play stations, enchanting evening programs and awe-inspiring embers.

The combination of you and us; the ideal amalgamation to reclaim and foster the beauty, wonder, awe, potential, and innocence of childhood. Come be our next Gandalf, Dumbledore or Yoda.

We are a small camp (95 campers, 60 staff), extremely successful, nonprofit, longest staff training in the country (3.5 weeks), & extensive development before camp and during it. Camp Augusta offers over 150 different activities, numerous unique evening programs, creative cabin activities, and innovative “Playstation” period. Extensive experience developing people, as well as excellent writing ability desired. We operate on a structure of flat hierarchy, consensus and intention with every action. Our website has over 360 pages of information. Please check out “Camp Augusta Difference” and “Partnering with Parents” pages especially. We’re very personal, and want you to be as well. We would love to tell you more about us, so do feel free to contact us for a personal reply/chat. :-) Please do not simply send us a resume and cover letter. We’re a horse of a different color, and we hope you are too. Look forward to hearing from you!
