This application is for staff that are interested in a position as our medical staff. Typically, the position serves 1 week terms, though there is potential for an additional staff member to be on site all year to serve as a consistent medical liason. The candidate must be a licensed medial prescriber, RN, LPN, EMT, Camp Health Director, or other qualified medical personnel as described by Michigan licensing guidelines AND be able to provide verfication of qualification.
Each year, we hire approximately 45 seasonal camp staff for our summer camp season. There are 30 cabin counselor positions, 6-7 nursing positions, 4-5 kitchen staff, a photographer, CIT director, and a maintenance assistant. Most of our staff positions require applicants to be 18 years of age or older. However, we do have a few support staff positions for 16 and 17 year olds.
We begin accepting applications and scheduling interviews in the fall, and typically have all of the positions filled by the end of March. We will continue accepting applications until all positions have been filled.
Before the first campers arrive, staff participate in 10-14 days of staff training. Staff training includes staff bonding, emergency drills, CPR and First Aid training, role-playing, planning for programs, practicing how to lead activities, setting up program areas and cabins, and getting prepared for the best summer ever.
