Do you have a passion for introducing youth to the natural world around them?  Do you know someone who does? If so, the Michigan Out-of-Doors Youth camp is the place to work this summer. Our camp program is looking to create an awesome team of 24 young adults that will create an amazing program for our campers. Our camp program runs for 5 weeks plus a week of staff training, at the beautiful Cedar Lake Outdoor Center in the Waterloo Recreation Area.

We are currently on the hunt for a Health Director, Waterfront Director, Range Officers’, Conservation Educators/Counselors, Lead Chef, Food Service Assistant, Facilities Manager, and Program Assistants. For most positions, you must be at least 18 years of age and be CPR and First Aid certified. The Program Assistant and Food Service Assistant positions require a minimum age of 16. The Health Director requires a minimum age of 21. Our goal is to create an incredible staff made of people that enjoy working with children, have a love for the outdoors and feel that it is important to get our youth off the couch and outside.

All of our positions are paid positions that not only come with a bi-weekly paycheck but also three square meals a day and housing for the camp season, along with your camp uniform. Whilst the monetary benefits are great, for many people it is the fulfillment of what we do that keeps them coming back. Working with children from so many diverse backgrounds can be extremely rewarding and watching one kid’s eyes light up from experiencing something brand new in nature will make the entire summer worth it.
