Why Work At Camp?
If you love the outdoors and want to make a positive difference for kids, Camp Sealth may be the place for you! We’re a friendly, inclusive community of campers and staff, accredited by the American Camp Association, and passionate about helping kids become caring, responsible individuals. Working at a summer camp is hard work, but it’s worth the effort. You’ll leave camp with great memories, new skills, and a ton of new best friends. A summer at camp is truly an experience you’ll never forget!
Summer staff must be at least 17 years old by July 1, should be able to commit the entire summer (June 13 to Sept. 1st), and have a clean background and favorable references. In addition, camp staff must be caring, compassionate, and enjoy working with kids. If you are not quite old enough for a staff position, consider applying for one of our Teen Leadership programs.
Available positions include cabin counselors, activity instructors, leadership staff, and support roles including kitchen staff and health care. Salary range is $200 to $400 per week for the entire season, depending on position and qualifications. Room and board are included for all positions.
Before you apply, please read the summer Employment Guide. You may also want to check out the Overnight Camp section of the website to learn more about camp activities, structure, etc. If you have questions about staff positions or to check the availability of jobs, contact us at 206 463 3174 ext. 44 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each summer typically, Sealth hires 20-30 international staff from around the world. This summer – due to limitations in travel due to COVID-19, we do not anticipate being able to hire new international staff.
If you are international and wish to pursue employment at Camp Sealth for a future summer, you must go through an agency to procure a J-1 visa. You must be at least 18 years old to qualify for a J-1 visa. Although there are many agencies that you can apply through, Sealth works primarily with Camp Leaders and Camp America.
