The BEST counselors work here!
Working at Go West Camps isn’t just a summer job…it’s a way of life. While at camp you’ll experience lots of fun and adventurous activities, but it is the community of understanding, friendship and encouragement that keeps campers and staff coming back year after year.
Are you ready for a summer at camp?
Camp is an exciting, exhausting, demanding, rewarding opportunity. A successful camp counselor is truly committed to providing their campers with a great experience, helping them to grow, build skills and create relationships. Great camp counselors are unique in their ability to put the needs of others before their own, and work on behalf of the Go West team. A passion for youth development and experience working with kids is a must!
Do you have great skills?
Grew up in 4-H or spent some time WWOOFing? We are looking for staff with experience farming or gardening. If you've ever had a job where you've bike commuted, Go West Camps might be a perfect fit for you. We use pedal powered transportation, and basic riding and bike maintenance skills are a real plus. Adventure programs are an important part of Go West Camps, and require some of our staff members to have a greater level of certification and education. We are looking for people who have education and certification through nationally and internationally recognized organizations such as Red Cross, American Mountain Guide Association, the American Canoe Association, National Outdoor Leadership School, International Mountain Biking Association, League of American Bicyclists. An interest in teaching, leading and working with youth is key for all of our staff members. When it's time to get riled up or wind down at camp, music can be the key. We're always looking for staff who are excited to sing or play a few licks on the guitar. We hope to use photos and video to document our campers experience at camp. If you're a photographer or GoPro wiz we need your skills.
Go West Camps is an equal opportunity employer. We value and celebrate diversity in our camper population and staff team.
