About Summer Employment
We are so pleased that you’re interested in working at High Hill Christian Camp. Our summer employees are what make camp work. Here are a few frequently asked questions that you may have. Scroll down to see available jobs and their descriptions.
I'm not a Certified Lifeguard - How do I get Certified?
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE CERTIFIED WHEN YOU APPLY FOR THIS POSITION. We provide lifeguard training/certification onsite during our staff training week.
What dates do High Hill summer employees work?
For 2023, our summer staff will come in on either June 5th or 7th to begin a week of training. Our last week of camp is over on August 6th. There are some opportunities to work an extra week or two at the end of the summer based on our rental groups.
Do we get any time off?
If you need a day off during the summer for some reason, these are dealt with on a case by case basis through the director. All staff will have July 2-7 off .
How much do you pay?
Our current summer staff pay begins at $300/week* with a $25 pay raise every year you return (up to 4 years or as deemed by the director). You get paid additionally for any weekends worked. This might not sound like a lot, but remember that all your meals during camp are provided, and you don’t have to pay for gas to drive to and from work.
*for staff over 18; under 18 will begin at $250/week.
What kind of things will be expected of me?
Your day to day duties will vary based on which position you are hired for. Click on any available job below to view the scope of responsibility and position summary.
Will I be able to spend time with campers?
This is really something that depends on you and how you work. When your duties are done you are free to spend time with campers. In the evenings, our staff is required to be at worship sessions. You won’t typically have time to be involved with family groups or teach classes unless you are hired as a cabin counselor.

TOTAL OF 4 POSITIONS - 2 MALE/2 FEMALEThis is a BRAND NEW position for our camp, so things will be flexible as we all learn what this position entails. Our cabin counselors will be responsible for one cabin group each session of camp made up of our non-member church campers—those who are attending without an adult faculty member. Much like a full-time summer camp team member, you’ll live, eat, play, and grow with your cabin group each session and model a mature Christian life to them. There are a few sessions where you will not be needed in the cabins (like our camper/parent sessions). During these weekends, you will spend time helping out in other areas. Apply here.
