DuBois Center offers traditional and specialty summer camps. We utilize a faith-based curriculum and theme that are integrated into our daily life at camp; so all summer staff members are engaged with faith-based as well as traditional camp activities.
Employment is for 7-9 weeks for leadership positions and 9-11 weeks for supervisory positions. Training begins in late May. Our first full week for campers in 2019 will begin on Sunday, June 9th. Each summer, we hire approximately 18 spirit-filled staff members to share God’s love with children, youth and families in a welcoming, outdoor environment.
Check out the Summer of Service flyers below to learn about the benefits, as well as the joys and challenges of spending your summer at DuBois Center.
Note: Minimum age is 18 for leadership positions and 20 for supervisory positions, although those aged 21 and above are preferred
Note: Lifeguard Certification is a PLUS for all positions. At least 7-8 of those hired must have this certification, so if you are a swimmer of moderate to advanced skill, you will give yourself an edge by becoming lifeguard certified. Check with your local Red Cross office, YMCA, recreation center or college for classes. We are also specifically looking for individuals with teams/challenge course experience and/or a guitar playing ability.
