Summer Employment

Accepting Applications in February for Athenian Summer Programs

Working at Athenian Summer Programs
Working at Athenian Summer Programs provide a dynamic opportunity for caring, dedicated people to be part of the summer program staff as teachers, camp counselors, residential dorm staff, lifeguards, and swim instructors.  Devil Mountain Summer Camp (DMSC) and Summer English Language Program (SELP) staff make a difference in our campers’ lives each day in the summer.  They are the reason why campers want to return year after year and then join our Counselor in Training program …because they LOVE the staff and want to be like them when they grow up.
There are many opportunities to bring your talents to our program.  We want a diverse staff because we want all campers to feel they have someone with whom they can connect.  And thus, having a quieter staff member who patiently helps a camper with an art project is just as valuable as a boisterous staff member who can lead a game of dodgeball.
Our 2018 Athenian Summer Programs begins on June 18 and runs through August 3 with a mandatory staff training day on Friday, June 15.
