We'll say it: we have the BEST camp staff on the planet. How do we know?  Because we scour the globe every year for the most talented, enthusiastic, committed youth development professionals in the world.

Working at overnight camp is unlike working in any other industry. Camp staff are held to incredibly high standards 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are charged with creating a fun, dynamic, high-energy, engaging environment for campers – all the while, making it look easy. Staff must place their individual needs and desires second, prioritizing instead the needs of the kids and the camp. It is a commitment to a program, to a philosophy, and to a group of people much larger than oneself.

Working at camp is also, arguably, the most fun work you could ever do! Employment at camp is collaborative, it is energizing, and it is empowering. The time spent at camp can be some of the most memorable of one’s lifetime. Friendships forged in the camp context – among campers and staff alike – happen quickly and endure indefinitely.

Staff roles are those to which one should apply only if the description above sounds inviting, exciting, and rewarding. We welcome adults (18+) from the USA to apply here. Those looking to apply internationally should click here. And young adults aged 16-17 may learn more about our internship here.

There isn’t a day in which I don’t go through all my camp pictures; I smile thinking about each moment. It was the best summer. The kids are beyond amazing. I didn’t expect my experience to be so good: nurturing and full of campers and co-workers that feel like family since day one. I think that is my favorite part about Camp Stonewall, that family environment. To feel so comfortable in a new place, far away from home, surrounded by strangers? Definitely home away from home. It makes everything easier and allows me to be my real self. Camp Stonewall has been my dream come true. I will always think of it like that.

The best decision of my life was to work at Camp Stonewall. I had an amazing three summers and loved every last minute of it. It seemed like a good chance to work during the summer and see as much of America as possible, but man, it is so much more than that! The kids and camp staff make you feel so at home that you never want to leave. I can't explain what this camp has done for me. The staff bawl their eyes out on that last day and never want to leave. You can’t waste a single second of it!

-Aidan ’15-’17, Scotland

I got the chance to work at Camp Stonewall for 5 years, and in that time I experienced friendships from around the world with so many amazing people. Everyone has so many talents that kids are able to enjoy in a safe, fun and unique environment. We make a positive impact on a lot of kids and in ourselves. We learn every day and we get to be that role model for kids that we once had when all of us were younger. Camp takes us and the kids into a different world, a world worth trying at least for once in your life.”

-Luis ‘17-’19, ‘22-’23, Bolivia

I chose Camp Stonewall because I wanted to find many new friends from the around world and learn about their cultures. Camp changed my view on meeting new friends, traveling, and spending the summer working hard. Being a camp counselor is the best experience ever.

-Dan ’16, Czech Republic

I decided to work at Camp Stonewall because I felt like I had skills and culture I could share with the kids. Working at CSW meant being part of a safe place for children. I had no idea how much a kid can love camp and miss it the whole year; the impact that those 7 weeks have is huge! Counselors are a vital part of Camp Stonewall; it is being a leader, a role model, a friend that kids really need. And it prepares you for life; it has a huge impact. The teamwork, putting the others first, and focusing on leadership has helped me in ways that I will always be thankful for.

-Cesia ’15, Bolivia

I had never been to summer camp as a kid, but being a counselor was amazing. Sharing languages and life experiences made CSW an eye opening and incredible place to be. CSW is a continuous learning environment that fosters not only individual growth but growth as a community and team. If I could go back and do it again, I would in a heartbeat.

-James ’12-14, USA

I had no idea summer camp would be so fun! Everyone at CSW makes camp feel like home and family. I was nervous going to a new country, but CSW made it the easiest and most enjoyable time ever. It was hands down the best two months of my life. I have found my passion of working with kids and have turned it into my career since camp Stonewall.

Jani ’17, New Zealand

I worked at CSW because I love working with children. They instill joy, peace, and love all at the same time. Being a counselor means being the highlight of a child’s summer, giving them the confidence to try new things in a warm and loving environment.

-Paul ’17, Ireland

CSW is the best summer of your life. You may travel miles to get there, may become exhausted or overwhelmed, but trust me: these 7 weeks are life-changing. I loved it so much that I returned for a second summer and the memories and friendships I’ve made I know will last a lifetime. Campers are a burst of life on campus, and they always end up teaching you something new! Aside from awesome activities, Camp Stonewall has some of the best special events! From dances to water carnival and colour wars – these are some of the most fun moments of the summer. Make History!

-Kirsty ’13-'14, Scotland 

To me, being a camp counselor means being a role model for a lot of kids while also making sure they have the best summer of their lives. Each child needs to have the best time possible, and that is up to you. The Camp Stonewall experience does so much. I've gotten jobs and opportunities since CSW because I was a camp counselor, and people understand what that means: leadership, communication, and working as part of a team.

-Garrett '13-'16, USA

I chose to work at Camp Stonewall because I wanted to return to the place I had enjoyed so much as a camper. My experience has been amazing as I have met so many cool people and had so much fun the last two summers I’ve been working. It’s helped me grow and become more outgoing and responsible each year I’ve come back.

-LP ‘22-’23, USA

I signed up to come and work at Camp Stonewall through Camp America in 2021; I was so excited to come to the US and experience what it’s like at a camp. When I arrived, I knew there was nothing like Camp Stonewall. Words cannot describe how much Camp Stonewall means to me - coming from the UK I have found a home miles and miles away. Camp Stonewall truly changed my life.
