Camp Lohikan is a traditional summer camp for boys and girls of the ages 6 to 15. We feature instruction in 65+ daily activities and a caring, nurturing camp community where the happiness and safety of our children is the highest priority. For 60+ years we've been providing children with fun-filled, memorable summers and we love it. Join us! This will be the BEST SUMMER OF YOUR LIFE.
We pay the best salaries to recruit the best staff!
Nothing is more important than our staff and we know it. If you are a hard working individual who enjoys children, you may be just the person we're searching for. Staff members must be able to put kids first at all times.
It is also essential that staff members be strong role models for our campers. And because we're working with kids, we have strict policies in many areas including cell phones, alcohol, smoking, curfew, etc. While it is preferable that our staff members have some experience working with children, this is not a prerequisite. Many program areas require skills and certifications to safely operate and this is a priority.
