Camp What If isn’t like most summer camps, and we like it that way. You will too. We’re hiring camp counselor and assistant counselor positions.

Camp Counselors are college-aged or older adults who work directly with campers on a daily basis, mentoring and getting to know them, having fun with them, and leading games and activities. Camp Counselor positions are paid $2,100 for our camp season, running from June 4 – July 18.

Camp Assistant Counselors are 10th – 12th grade students who work do a mix of working directly with campers every day as well as helping the logistics of camp to run smoothly. Assistant Counselors are responsible for raising their own salaries with logistical assistance from TomTod. Assistant Counselors can earn up to $400 per two weeks (set-up, camp, tear-down) of camp; up to $1,200 for the summer season.
