Summer Staff

Overview

Paid Summer Staff Positions

Our Summer Staff are the foundation of Camp! From late May to late August, The Painted Turtle normally hires approximately 60 people to fill our paid summer staff positions. This year, with our summer looking very different, we are only able to hire a handful of staff to bring our Virtual Camp at Home programs to life. 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 are currently hiring a handful of staff to bring our Virtual Camp at Home programs to life.
