Job Description

Working at Camp Takodah is far more than your average summer job! You’ll gain more valuable work experience than you could at most internships and make some of the best friends of your life — all while helping hundreds of children discover who they are and what they can achieve.

Camp Takodah has a long tradition of single-gender overnight camping for kids ages 7-15. We have a Boys Camp and a Girls Camp, and both campers and staff are invited to join the camp that best suits their gender identity. We feature all the best camp activities — focused on aquatics, sports, arts and crafts, ropes courses, performing arts, and nature.

Each summer, we choose 150 college students and young professionals from around the world to join our team. We seek staff with warm personalities, positive attitudes, strong work ethics, good character, and a sincere desire to live and work with children. Many staff members are former campers who give Takodah a great sense of community and tradition. At the same time, we value new staff members who bring fresh ideas and energy to our camp family.
