Camp Hidden Meadows is looking for great people who are willing to work hard, share talents and give everything they’ve got. Forget what you have seen in the movies–working at camp is about making connections with young people, serving as a role model, and putting the needs of others ahead of your own.

You don’t need to be an expert to work at camp, but you need to be willing to give your time, attention, and heart to others. The demands are constant, but the rewards are infinite! 

If you're passionate about camp and eager to join a team committed to delivering incredible experiences, apply here.
