Work at Camp

Summer at Santa Catalina camp counselor walks with campers

Summer at Santa Catalina seeks joyful, hard-working, enthusiastic, and motivated individuals to serve as residential counselors, day counselors, and teachers. We offer highly competitive pay to our employees.


Our residential and day counselors build community, assist teachers in the classroom, and help campers grow into their best selves. In the process, counselors gain valuable leadership and communication skills that will help them stand out to future employers. Residential counselors must be high school graduates, while day counselor positions are open to rising 12th graders. Requirements and responsibilities vary, but all counselors must be available from June 13–July 26.

Our summer teachers are critical to the camper experience at Summer at Santa Catalina. As a camp teacher, you will lead up to four classes a day, each class being an hour and 15 minutes. We offer a wide variety of classes from sports, art, drama, and dance, to science and tech. We seek professional educators with unique educational experiences and expertise in their field. Summer teachers build community around shared interests and are skilled at teaching multiple ages (grades 3-9) and building relationships. Teachers work Monday through Friday for our 5-week camp program and join us for our two closing days at the end of each session. Join us and help our campers discover new passions and build lifelong friendships.
