Role of Support Staff

Working as a Support Staff member at camp is another option available at camp. Applicants for support staff positions must be full-time University students in continuing education or who have graduated no earlier than May of the summer you wish to attend camp. 

Support Staff play a very important role at camp, helping to keep operations running smoothly and efficiently. Positions range from preparing meals and cleaning the kitchen, to doing office work, maintenance, and grounds work, all while experiencing the benefits and unique atmosphere of an American summer camp.

WORK HOURS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Support Staff work up to 10 hours per day/6 days per week (max 60 hours per week). Depending on your specific position, you may be given time-off during the day/evening and at least one day off per week. Both CCUSA and your camp encourage you to get involved with camp activities and campers during your free time! Like all campers and camp staff, you will be expected to follow strict camp rules, such as no smoking, no drinking alcohol, no illegal drugs, a strict schedule and a nightly curfew. All in all, the fun of summer camp more than offsets the hard work. Nevertheless, a cheerful, hardworking attitude is a must!

ACCOMMODATION

Support Staff share their own housing (cabins, dormitories, or platform tents) with co-workers and do not share a cabin with children.

FOOD

Support Staff will often eat together before the rest of camp at each meal time. Food is plentiful and is usually served “family style” or from a buffet.
