Summer Camp Counselor
General Program
Hands-down the most incredible staff experience in the camping industry! We are Camp Chen-A-Wanda, a premier traditional summer camp located in Northeast Pennsylvania, a short drive from New York City and Philadelphia. We are family-owned and operated, and we have been making an impact on our campers' lives since we opened in 1939. We're located on beautiful Fiddle Lake, where our campers and staff enjoy waterskiing, kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, or having a blast on our Aqua Park. Our water activities are just scratching the surface as we have over 70 activities on site including, but not limited to: baseball, soccer, basketball, tennis, lacrosse, hockey, volleyball, golf, archery, whiffle ball, mini-golf, skateboarding, mountain biking, mountain boarding, ATVs, rock climbing, adventure, circus trapeze, gymnastics, dodgeball, Zumba, dance, weight-training, yoga, spin classes, theater, videography, photography, cooking, baking, pizza-making, hibachi, robotics, laser-etching, 3-D printing, rocketry, water gun action course, archery tag, music, arts and crafts, tie-dye, ceramics, and so much more!

Our seven-week program is based around a fun and well-rounded experience where every camper can be the best version of themselves, and as a staff member, you'll find the best version of yourself! Come join our team where our staff members regularly exclaim at the end of the summer, "I can't believe that this was a job!". We know the feeling...

Summer Camp Counselor


Camp Chen-A-Wanda is one of the hottest camps in the United States, with staff coming to us from all over the world. Our programming is second-to-none with every sport imaginable, from water sports to outdoor adventure with ATV's to arts & crafts and so much more! We have become one of the most successful camps in the world by genuinely valuing our staff and embracing the undeniable fact that the happier a staff member is, the better our camp will be. Working at Camp Chen-A-Wanda will be a life-changing opportunity for you, and the experience itself is what keeps our staff members coming back year-after-year. We work round the clock to provide our staff members with the best extra-curricular experiences in the industry. We offer a welcoming culture where everyone feels like they're a part of the community from the moment they set foot on our camp. Staff will receive pay at the end of the summer and be given room and board for their entire 9-week stay at camp (June 12 - August 14, 2021). Travel bonuses are negotiable based on experience and skill set as well as expenses in coming to camp.

Every year we are searching for dynamic staff members to fill our most crucial roles at camp. The prominent three roles we recruit for are General Counselors, Specialist Counselors, and Division Heads. Each of these roles can be simply a fantastic summer job or can be tied to your school internship program as a paid internship in numerous fields of study!

General Counselors live in a bunk with approximately a dozen campers and 3-4 other counselors/specialists. They will work with this same group of campers all summer long, forming incredible bonds as these campers become your little brothers/sisters for the summer. General Counselors take their campers to every activity on the schedule, meaning that a General Counselor gets to do everything on camp! When it's time for waterskiing, get ready to jump into the lake! When it's time for baseball, throw on a baseball glove! The General Counselor role is the best way to get the full authentic camp experience.

Specialists are counselors who also live in a bunk with a group of campers and counselors. Unlike a General Counselor, when the activity day begins, a Specialist will leave their group to teach, coach, and instruct at his/her specialty area. Lifeguards will head to the waterfront. Adventure Specialists will head to the climbing tower. Soccer Specialists will head to the soccer fields. A Specialist gets to meet every group of campers throughout the summer as they visit that specialty area while also getting to form unique bonds with their own group of campers. We look for Specialists in the following areas: lifeguarding, boating, waterskiing, arts & crafts, ceramics, dance, Zumba, fitness training, guitar, drums, piano, rock-climbing, golf, archery, mountainboarding, skateboarding, ATV's, baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis, hockey, lacrosse, softball, football, circus trapeze, gymnastics, videography/photography, and more!

Division Heads are staff members who are in charge of a division of campers and their staff. Requirements include: Must be at least 21-years-old or have a university degree. Teaching program students or graduates preferred, but not required. Must be organized and able to inspire dozens of children and staff! Bonuses are paid for Division Heads with Teaching Credentials and Master's Degrees in Education!
