The experience gained from summer camp jobs is a mark of distinction on a resume, especially for beginning teacher candidates.  Candidates with this experience often omit their time at summer camps from their resume, but schools actually value something like this.  An administrator believes your time at a summer camp demonstrates your enthusiasm toward working with kids.  Furthermore, the skills you develop in managing and motivating campers encourages school administrators to believe in your potential for success in the classroom.

Southern Teachers does not place counselors in camp counselor jobs, or other summer camp positions.  However, below is a list of the terrific summer camps that do hire summer staff each and every year, and often list their summer camp jobs directly on their websites.
