Summer Seasonal Employment

Camp Boggy Creek is hiring a seasonal staff team to keep our campers, volunteers and staff members feeling safe, respected and loved.

 

Our staff members will leave 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 into the lives of children with serious illnesses.

 

For the summer of 2022, we will hire nearly 50 employees to work from the beginning of June to the beginning of August, serving the children with serious illnesses who attend summer camp. Applicants must be at least 19 years old, and employment is contingent on reference checks, receipt of passing the criminal background screening, fingerprinting and medical / immunization requirements.  We try to have summer staff hired by the end of 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. 

 

All voices are needed at Camp Boggy Creek, and every new member of our team is an opportunity for our Camp to grow.  We want to hire a camp staff that is reflective of the campers we serve, so we strongly encourage diverse candidates to apply.  Camp Boggy Creek is intentional about growing in our diversity, equity, and inclusion, as we want all children and adults to feel safe, respected and loved here.

 

Please note:  summer staff must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and must be able to successfully wear a mask throughout the day.
