Why Camp 7 this summer?
There is no better way to spend a summer than making a difference in the lives of children. If you are willing to give your heart and full efforts to providing campers with the summer of a lifetime, then Camp 7 might be right for you! You will have the opportunity to support, nurture, teach, interact with and care for children in a dynamic environment.
The 2018 summer session will run for 10 weeks which includes a week of staff orientation. Your training will involve some midweek and weekend days (approximately 40 hours) prior to camp. You will be compensated for this time. Our objectives during pre-camp training are to orient you to your job, provide you with the necessary skills and training, introduce you to your co-workers and prepare you for your exciting summer at Camp 7.
