Camp Lincoln and Camp Lake Hubert are premier, residential summer camps in the Midwest. Our camps offer more than 40 water and land activities and remain two of the oldest summer camps in the U.S. We have a tradition of hiring top-notch collegiate athletes, coaches, teachers and skilled instructors, passionate about their activities from across the globe. Our staff always deliver quality care, opportunities, and programming to the campers.
Our camps are “skill-based” we use that term to describe the activity experience. Campers work toward skill development in each of the areas they choose. While you are teaching and leading the campers, working as a positive role model, you are teaching them social skills, community living, and group communication. The opportunity to be a positive influence to children and youth for three months of the year, is life affirming, challenges you daily, and encourages you to be better, more confident, and rounded.
Here are a few other reasons to enjoy working at camp:
• Great Food
• Competitive industry salary and travel pay
• Room and Board Included
• Shuttles to local attractions
• Daily personal growth and professional development opportunities
Have you got what it takes?
Working at a summer camp is not for the faint of heart. Our Winter Office is dedicated to bringing together the best summer staff team that has what it takes to deliver quality care and instruction to our campers. It takes someone with determination, level headedness, and compassion to help make a summer successful. Being tasked every day with the care of other people’s children is no small feat. For staff, the days are early and the nights are long, but the memories you make with your campers makes it all worthwhile.
What is in it for you?
The relationships you make at camp are unforgettable. After 10 weeks at camp, you will walk away with not only a deeper sense of who you are, but also an understanding of the impact that you had on a young child’s life. The experiences you gain from work at camp not only benefit your personal life, they also benefit your professional life. Working at a summer camp greatly improves your time management and communication skills. Your growth can be seen in the years following during college projects, public speaking opportunities, and job interviews. When an employer sees your experience as a summer camp staff member, they see an employee with tenacity, integrity, and grit.
So, why do you want to work at Camp Lincoln and Camp Lake Hubert?
Each summer, we ask our staff why they want to work at camp. The answers generally focus on “impacting the lives of kids” or “I want to do something different this summer.” It is true, camp does not pay as much as working at the mall or the local fast food place, but a summer at Camp Lincoln and Camp Lake Hubert is not about what you put in your bank account.
We have a saying here: “CFAB” (pronounced sea-fab), which stands for Camp Friends Are Best. You will not know how true that is until you have left the front gates to go home. Once you work a summer at camp, you will never want to go back to anything else.
Everyday we all are constantly surrounded by technology. Having time in the woods of Minnesota without the distractions of cell phones, tv, video games, etc makes someone really learn to appreciate the beauty of nature and life.
Let me set the scene for you...Nineteen year old me, just finished my freshman year of college, and had no idea how to productively spend my summer. One of my best school friends mentioned that he was planning on working at a summer camp in northern Minnesota, and I thought 'why not?...,What I didn't realize at the time was that camp would not only define my summer, but would define my life.
Deciding to work at CLH was easily the best decision I've ever made! Camp welcomes its staff with open arms. It was such a safe environment to learn, make mistakes, and share successes. I've never experienced a place that has strengthened my character and challenged my limits while also giving me lifelong memories and friendships.
