Summer Camp is one of our most treasured programs. We devote the majority of our collective staff time and resources to developing this immersive experience, where youth of all backgrounds and walks of life can spend time in nature together, learning to cooperate through work and play. We hire skilled and caring people, ages 18 and over, who love to work with children in an integrated, intergenerational, community setting. Are you passionate about social and environmental justice, movements of peace and equality, and/or the natural landscape of rural Michigan? Want to share that passion with a group of unique and inspiring kids as you learn and grow side by side? Summer staff must be available to work from June 28 to August 16, 2017. LGBTQ and POC are especially encouraged to apply. See seasonal jobs for longer term employment options at Circle Pines Center.
