Role of a Support Staff

If you are a full-time university student, working as a Support Staff member at camp is another popular option. Support Staff play a very important role at camp, helping to keep camp operations running smoothly and efficiently. Positions range from preparing meals and cleaning the kitchen, to doing office work, maintenance, and grounds work, all while experiencing the benefits and unique atmosphere of an American summer camp.

WORK HOURS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Support Staff can work up to 10 hours per day and no more than 60 hours per week. Depending on your specific position, you may be given time-off during various times throughout the day and at least one day off per week. Both CCUSA and your camp encourage you to get involved with camp activities and campers during your free time! Like all campers and camp staff, you will be expected to follow strict camp rules, such as no smoking, no drinking of alcoholic beverages on camp, a strict schedule and a nightly curfew. All in all, the fun of summer camp more than offsets the hard work. Nevertheless, a cheerful, hardworking attitude is a must!

ACCOMMODATION

Accommodations are provided free of charge. Support Staff generally share their own housing (cabins, dormitories, or platform tents) with co-workers and do not share a cabin with children.

FOOD

Meal time at camp is often filled with talking, cheering and singing. Join in if you can! Staff and campers eat in the Dining Hall. Food is plentiful and is usually served “family style” or from a buffet.
