Do you want a job that challenges you to provide most fun, enriching, and educational camp experience for children? Do you love the outdoors and environmental science?
Counselors at Camp Kingfisher are role models, mentors, leaders, and friends to campers. We hire counselors, canoe instructors, arts & crafts specialists, team building instructors, lifeguards, and teen leadership instructors. We invest in our staff with professional counselor training, team building, and naturalist instruction.
Explore Nature. Build Character. Have Fun
Most counselors have completed a minimum of one year of college and have backgrounds in child care, education and/or natural science. Junior counselors are recent high school graduates who have experience working with children and are pursuing work in environmental studies. Each staff member is carefully interviewed and passes a nation-wide criminal background check. Our seven-day staff training includes experiential workshops, lessons from professionals, First Aid and CPR.
Camp Kingfisher is focused on kids. We are proud of our top-notch camp program; it’s a welcoming and nurturing environment where campers can have fun in the outdoors, discover their connection to nature, and build strong character.
