Job Opportunities

Our Staff

A child’s relationship with his or her counselor can make all the difference between a great summer camp experience and one that is only so-so. We make it a priority to hire staff that can inspire, lead, motivate, reassure, protect and laugh with our campers.

We hire teachers or mature high school and college students. Although most of our staff comes from the local area, we also hire staff members from across the country and around the world. Every staff member undergoes a thorough interview, including criminal background check, and extensive training to prepare them to help your children get the most out of their camp experience. A staff member should be trustworthy, responsible, enjoy working with kids and act as a good role model. Staff members must be 17 or older.

Counselors at Bernadette & Fatima have a strong desire to truly make an impact in the lives of young people. We’re looking for counselors and staff who are willing to go above and beyond and lend a hand whenever needed.
