Summer 2019 - Employment Opportunities

Working at Vacamas

At Vacamas we offer camping experiences for children aged between 7 and 16. We know from experience that each age group has different needs. Just as we hire different types of counselors to offer certain activities like swimming or woodshop, we also hire counselors who will be able to support different age groups of campers. At Vacamas there are no all camp activities, we are decentralized by age group in order to offer all children a challenging and interesting program. Each age group is called a division and although there are age guidelines, campers are placed for maturity and needs as determined by their camp interview so ages can vary.
