For summer sessions, Camp Boggy Creek hires nearly 70 employees to work from mid-May to mid-August serving the more than 1,000 children who attend summer camp. Applicants must be at least 19 years old, and employment is contingent on references, criminal background check, and completion of medical history/physical forms. We try to have summer staff hired by mid-April, so interested applicants are encouraged to apply early.
Camp work is demanding. Please be ready to experience long hours, curfews, limited time off, lack of privacy, Florida heat and thunderstorms! We play hard with children, and the rewards are life-changing. Our staff leaves having learned interpersonal skills, worked in a community that believes in teamwork, made long-lasting friendships, discovered new talents, and contributed to bringing joy and fun back into the lives of children with serious illnesses.
Cabin Counselors: take care of the daily needs of 8-10 campers. The job requires being actively involved in the supervision, guidance, and motivation of campers by building working relationships with kids and staff to ensure that a high standard of care is maintained.
Activity Staff: members prepare, supervise, and facilitate activities such as theater, cooking, archery, woodworking or music, just to name a few.
Kitchen Staff: members help our chefs prepare the food and maintain a clean kitchen and dining hall.
Camp Nurses: must be licensed Registered Nurses with at least one year of experience. Pediatric experience is preferred.
Cabin counselors live in one of our sixteen cabins, sharing living space with co-counselors and volunteers. Campers also live in the cabins, and cabin counselors are responsible for the 24-hour care of their assigned campers. Activity staff members live in staff lodges. Housing for kitchen staff and nurses is also available on camp, if needed.
