Before you apply, ask yourself:

  • Will I enjoy living and working with children, 24 hours a day, six days a week, for two months?

  • Are there any factors that might prevent me from working at  camp this summer? (Summer classes, boyfriend/ girlfriend/ significant other, family reunions, vacations, and other obligations)

  • Do I need to make a certain amount of money this summer?

  • Will I be able to be flexible about schedule changes and trying new things? Am I able to “go with the flow?”

  • How do I feel about spending the summer away from home, in a new place full of new people?

  • Am I able to commit to the two weeks of Staff Orientation and seven sessions of camp with children?

  • Am I willing to live by the standards and expectation set forth for Camp Howe staff?


Working at summer camp is a huge commitment. While certainly not without personal rewards, this is earned by making personal sacrifices. We want staff that are 100% committed to creating an inclusive community for the entire summer. If you are ready for the challenge, please complete the application below and one of our staff will be in contact with you. 


PLEASE NOTE: We recommend that you take the time to think about your application. You may wish to write your responses in a word document and cut and paste in the appropriate boxes to assist in spell checking and making sure your response completely answers the question and give us the best representation of yourself. 


This application is probably easier to complete on a computer or tablet!
