Dear Camp Counselor Applicant,

Thank you for your interest in applying to work for Saltaire Day Camp as a counselor or CIT. There are a number of steps to applying but the most important first step is figuring out if this is the job for you. Here is how you can do that. Ask yourself these 5 questions:

  • Can I commit to working 4 weeks in a row this summer?
    Weeks begin on Monday and end on Friday. The camp day is from 8:30am to 12:15pm. YES? this could be the job for you.
  • Do I like working with children?
    Being a camp counselor at Saltaire Day Camp involves spending time keeping children safe and happy. YES? This could be the job for you!
  • Can I let myself be playful?
    Being a camp counselor at Saltaire Day Camp involves letting down your guard down and participating in activities that involve being playful, silly, messy, relaxed, and more. Sound fun? This could be the job for you.
  • Am I ready to work hard and be 100% engaged?
    Being a camp counselor at Saltaire Day Camp is fun–and it’s a lot of work. Even if you are not leading an activity the expectation is that you will participate and be engaged: no sitting on the sidelines. No being on your cell phone. No side conversations in front of campers where campers are not the focus. Sound like something you can do? This could be the job for you.
  • Am I ready and willing to take the time for the training necessary to work?
    In order to work at Saltaire Day Camp you must attend the mandatory orientation training sessions below. You also must participate in a mandatory online PESH (public employee safety & health) training with the Village of Saltaire and meet in person with the camp onboarding team. The orientation training session dates and times are below:


    • Wednesday, June 29 from 10am to 1pm
    • PESH Training: online

Have you answered yes to all 5 questions?

The next step is to fill out a Saltaire Day Camp Request to Interview Form (button below) and email it to the Camp Director Molly Davis. Her email address is molly@saltaire.org.

Once Molly has received your application she will reach out to you to set up a phone or online interview.  Keep in mind that if after that point you are offered a position there is an employee onboarding process you must complete in person with the Village of Saltaire (referenced above) in order to begin working and be paid. 

Happy Camping!

Molly Davis
Camp Director, Saltaire Day Camp
