Are you interested in joining the Camp Nuhop team? We select staff based on maturity, sensitivity, and the ability to relate well with the young people who participate in our summer programs for students with learning disabilities.
Our staff is dedicated to facilitating a positive experience for every child and helping them see themselves in a positive light. Staff and campers canoe, hike, and camp together—but most importantly, they take risks together and accomplish goals that may initially seem impossible to the camper.
2022 Employment Details
Who works at Nuhop?
We only hire dedicated and caring people who are ready for the responsibility of working with children with special needs. We expect employees to create and maintain the structured, nurturing environment our children need to succeed. The hours are long and sometimes difficult, and you are repaid with sincere smiles, fulfilling experiences, and life-long memories. With a busy schedule, counselors are busy too but do have some time off during the summer. We allow for one night off during each session and one full day off in between camps.
All Camp Nuhop staff are responsible for the safety and success of all Nuhop campers. We promote unconditional acceptance of everyone in our Nuhop community; all seasonal employees are expected to live up to this ideal. You are required to attend ALL SCHEDULED DATES and meetings, including the Summer Staff in-service and six sessions of our special needs camps. The Staff in-service is designed to create staff community and to teach counselors our mission, camp activities, behavior management techniques, and more. Room and board are provided for the summer.
The Assistant Director and Mentor Staff Counselors will be responsible for attending an additional leadership in-service as directed by the Summer Director.
Camp Nuhop accepts applications at the beginning of each calendar year until all positions have been hired. You will be notified shortly after we receive your online application.
