We believe that summer camp is much more than a summer job – it’s a platform to have a significant impact on the lives youth and adults, as well as a lifelong reference point and a springboard for lasting friendships with other staff members. Our flagship Family Camp programs bring youth and their caregivers to camp together. While we provide programming throughout the day, we do not offer the traditional 24 hour care of an overnight youth camp. This means your days are a bit shorter, and you get to exhale at the end of a long day. A summer working at camp is the perfect combination between having fun and doing good. Each week, we have over 150 campers on-site that are expecting a fun and safe camp experience. Staff members are responsible for ensuring the safety and well-being of the campers and at any point you should be ready and capable of assisting the campers in the event of an emergency. This is a unique and challenging aspect of the job. In order to ensure a successful summer, we ask that our staff are willing and able to put the campers and their coworkers safety and well-being first. Staff are provided rustic housing, meals, and laundry onsite at no cost. OFRC offers competitive pay and a unique employment experience. We value a diverse and inclusive team, and our goal for each staff member is that they will leave camp with a lifelong sense of community.
