Counselor Positions

Counselors pose for a silly photo.

Our counselors are fun-loving, creative and energetic young people who care about making the world a better place. Counselors live in bunks with campers and ensure their safety and happiness throughout their time at camp. All staff members receive training to ensure that they are prepared to work with our camper populations and that they understand their roles and responsibilities. Compassion, strong work ethic and positive attitudes are musts.

This is an ideal opportunity for those interested in health, education, therapy and other medical and wellness fields to gain hands-on experience. It is also ideal for counselors who have an interest in leading or assisting in specialized activities, such as theater or pottery. Many of our counselors themselves have a health condition and grew up attending the camps, while others are interested in learning more about the conditions we serve.

Previous experience working with children is preferred. Applicants must be at least 18 years-old by the start of camp. Please note that working for Brainy Camps requires a background check, interviews, trainings and references. While most counselors apply for one or two camps, you are welcome to apply for the entire summer.

If this role sounds right for you, sign up today.
