More About Camp Augusta
Housing and meals are provided. Live in a cabin, yurt or treehouse! Meals are organic, locally-sourced and made fresh every day!
Staff must be available from May 18 - August 14th, 2021, which means being at camp and ready by May 17th. Staff training is 3.5 weeks long followed by 9 weeks of main season camp. Opportunities are available to work pre and post season assisting with family camps and school groups before staff training (start of May) and after the summer (August and September).
We acknowledge these are unprecedented times and strive to prioritize health and safety of campers and staff so we can continue to bring wish, wonder, and surprise into children's lives through magical days spent at summer camp. In response to the ongoing risks of COVID-19, we are taking steps to develop a comprehensive policy for summer operations. As part of this response, Camp Augusta will be a closed site for 2021. For staff, this means that all staff will be required to remain on-site all season including time-off with the exception of predetermined essential reasons. The overall experience of our staff is very important to us, and we remain confident that being a staff member at Camp Augusta provides one of the most worthwhile and life changing experiences in the camp world. If you would like to know more, we are happy to chat about details during the application process.
The depth of training and ongoing professional support you will receive as a Camp Augusta staff member (in the realms of education, personal development and communication, and activity skills) can offer far-reaching benefits for many other parts of your life.
Daily life while at Camp Augusta:
Working at camp is an experience unlike any other. Our days are beautiful, demanding, inspiring, educational, hilarious, frustrating, silly, surprising, intimate, active and most importantly, full of opportunity. Staff have the opportunity to learn and teach an astounding variety of camp activities. We offer over 150 different activities, and we are always excited about any creative contributions you bring to the table. Staff also have the opportunity to develop themselves personally and professionally. In our 3.5 week staff training and throughout the summer, staff can learn and practice progressive models of child development and counseling, communication techniques like clean communication and Nonviolent Communication, diverse leadership styles as well as how to live in a tight-knit community. Come with an open-mind, a trusting-heart and plenty of ambition. Leave with your heart and mind on fire!
