Come join our Peaceable Kingdom family!
Every summer we hire a diverse and exceptional group of summer staff that will give our campers the best week of their life!
Our summer program team is responsible for facilitating the camp experience for every camper who comes through our gates. While at PK, staff can expect to build upon a foundation of valuable skills all while getting to work and play outside!
Public speaking, critical thinking, collaboration and problem solving will all be strong suits of any staff member by the end of the summer.
Summer Program Staff spend a large amount of time with campers. You will be trained to facilitate all activities, support the maintenance of facilities and assist program leadership. As a result, you will learn a wide variety of activities and be a part of all the magic at camp!
Variety’s Peaceable Kingdom hosts a variety of diagnosis-specific summer camps that bring together diverse groups of campers with a shared experience. Throughout the week, campers participate in a variety of activities including high ropes, archery, fishing, campfires and scavenger hunts where they are personally challenged and encouraged to come together to support one another.
Each week is a unique experience with different opportunities for our staff to learn and grow, and new campers to get to know. One week you will watch as teens with hand differences unite their teams with chants and capture each other’s team flags, and the next you will be overcome with emotion as you listen to a quieter camper at bereavement camp break out of their shell by singing in the talent show.
Bond with each individual camper while at activities, sharing meals, or splashing around in the pool. You also get the chance to live and work closely with your peers, gaining a new family based on meaningful shared experiences.
The friendships you make this summer will last a lifetime!
