Why Work For Camp?

Each person who works at Camp Olson YMCA is selected because of their strength of character, professionalism, demonstrated commitment to mentoring children and their ability to role model the principles of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility through words and actions.

As the leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, Camp Olson YMCA is looking for talented individuals to help us make our community stronger. When you work with the YMCA, you’ll find yourself in a career with a bright future and the chance to make a lasting difference.

A camp job is not only an amazing opportunity for fun, friendship, and adventure, it’s also a fantastic growth experience for you. Camp is a place to have an impact on others, learn about yourself, face challenges and reach personal goals. The experiences you gain from work at camp not only benefit your personal life, but they also benefit your professional life. Working at a summer camp greatly improves your critical thinking, confidence, time management, and communication skills. Your growth can be seen in the years following during college projects, public speaking opportunities, and job interviews. When an employer sees your experience as a summer camp staff member, they see an employee with tenacity, integrity, and grit.
