Come work at Camp Harrison!
A camp is only as strong as its staff team. Camp Harrison is staffed by the most qualified and experienced men and women in the camping field. Education, experience, training and good character are all components of the selection criteria. Our staff team is what sets us apart and makes your camper's experience a phenomenal one. We serve as excellent mentors and role models focusing on the needs of campers both in the cabin and activity areas.
Camp Harrison is staffed with head counselors, senior counselors and junior counselors that all work together. With a 4:1 camper to counselor ratio, our cabin leaders meet daily, one-on-one, with each camper to ensure that they are thriving at camp. Cabin counselors are excellent mentors and role models who are focused on the needs of campers.
Eighty percent of Camp Harrison staff are Senior Counselors who must have completed a minimum of one year of college, attended an extensive orientation, and uphold the values of the YMCA: responsibility, respect, caring, honesty and faith. All staff are trained in First Aid/CPR, AED and the majority of our staff are trained lifeguards. We screen all applicants through an in-depth interview, reference check and background check through state and national authorities. All administrative staff have college degrees and/or exemplary camping backgrounds with a combined years of experience in the residential camp setting.
