Camp Nicolet

Work at Camp


A summer camp job is a great way to positively impact the lives of youth today, spend lots of time outside, and meet new people from all over the world. When working at camp, you are here to enrich the lives of our campers. Staff work together as a team to provide a positive, safe, and exciting camp experience. Days are long, but at the end of the summer you will be able to look back and realize the positive contributions and impact you have made. Creativity, a good sense of humor, maturity, and a willingness to work hard are a must!
