Camp Summer Jobs

Learn more about working at Camp Shane.

Are you interested in dedicating yourself to helping children change their lives? Do you have a strong interest in health and fitness? If so then Camp Shane has great summer jobs for you!

We are a traditional co-ed weight loss camp. We hire graduates, undergraduate college students, coaches, teachers and people who welcome a challenge and have a passion for working with kids. Only people who commit themselves to being the best need apply. Come and make a difference in a child’s life!

Camp Shane is run like any great traditional camp.  Unlike most camps, however, we deliver a successful weight loss program by serving our campers and staff members meals made with whole, fresh and local foods and ingredients.  Our menu uses nearly all fresh fruits and vegetables, minimally processed ingredients, lean animal and vegetarian proteins and whole grains.  And the food is delicious!

We offer weekly nutrition classes and “rap” sessions that help campers build self-esteem. We have extensive and beautiful facilities. We’re upbeat, and use positive reinforcement. We offer all sports activities, putting emphasis on participation, instruction and having FUN, as opposed to competition. Lastly, what would Camp be without special events such as campfires, drama, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, dances, group games, carnival, etc? There are also optional off camp sightseeing trips and inter-camp games.

We consider our staff the backbone of a successful summer. As a staff member, you should be one who is at times an authoritative figure, other times a teacher, coach, brother or sister, and at all times a best friend. We work hard to develop close relationships and hold regular staff meetings. The Directors and Head Staff are always available. We thrive on feedback, suggestions and involvement to improve Camp and create a great summer for all campers and staff alike.

Camp counseling is not a job for everyone, but despite the challenges you will face, being a counselor is an extremely rewarding experience. It requires dedication and long hours. Prepare to not have much privacy, as you will be living in a cabin with campers. You must be responsible at all times. You will have a strong impact on children and develop friendships with people from all over the world.
