Camp McKee has over fifty jobs available every summer in a wide range of fields, from program support to administration. Long-time camp staffers will tell you that working at camp is fun and immensely fulfilling. As a camp staff member, you’ll be paid a weekly salary, eat for free in the dining hall, and be given free housing in one of our on-camp staff areas.
