Summer Camp Counselor Employment

Each year our Princeton University Summer Day Camp employs nearly 40 camp counselors. While most of our counselors are ages 18+, we do offer some counselor roles to individuals ages 16-17, based on previous experience in our CIT program or other summer camp program. Being a camp counselor has many benefits, including:

  • Making a positive impact on children      
  • Professional training in child management, group dynamics, leadership skills and risk assessment
  • Developing and using teaching skills
  • Personal growth and development
  • Relationship building

Counselors can work up to 40 hours per week during camp weeks and training will be held in early June.
