Paid Summer Staff Positions


Our Summer Staff are the foundation of Camp! From late May to late August, The Painted Turtle hires approximately 60 people to fill our paid summer staff positions. Though working at Camp is demanding, it is tremendously rewarding. Each camp day involves long hours and limited time off. We expect a lot from our staff, but we also expect staff to gain a tremendous amount from their experience at The Painted Turtle.

Many former staff describe their camp experience as life-changing. Our dedicated staff team is made up of individuals from all over the world, bonded together by one goal: to shape our campers’ experience at The Painted Turtle into an incredibly empowering adventure they won’t ever forget. Our summer staff positions offer the opportunity to grow and contribute more than you ever thought possible in 3 months time. We invite you to read more about our staff positions and consider joining our team. 

COVID-19 Update: Following the recommendations of the State of California and the Department of Public Health regarding the COVID-19 virus, we share with a heavy heart that we have decided not to conduct Spring Family Weekends or residential camps this summer. At this time we are not accepting seasonal staff applications for our summer programs. To read The Painted Turtle’s full statement about COVID-19, click here.
