Do you work hard and play hard?

Want to have a rewarding but fun job this spring and summer?  We’re looking for a few good balancing acts!


Summer Camp Counselors:
Are you a leader that can balance a fun-filled summer and leading some great kids? We’re searching for counselors at YMCA Camp Arrowhead who can balance long, hectic days with the responsibility of making a difference in children’s lives.

As a counselor, you’re always on stage, helping campers, setting an example, teaching, and playing games. Our campers have a busy schedule of activities throughout long summer days, and you will need to be on top of it – from planning activities to making sure the campers are where they need to be to leading games. You can bring your own special talent, whether it is swimming, sports, archery, music, or dancing. You’ll need a desire to teach others and the energy and attention to detail necessary to make a busy camp schedule work. We’ll teach you everything else you need to know.
