We Have Jobs!

Tyler and I have not been in the office much lately.  We have been driving all over the state visiting universities.  We have attended six job fairs in the last 10 days.  We are visiting these job fairs to recruit the 2018 staff for the Michigan Out-of-Doors Youth camp.   Each year we hire roughly 20 people to help run the camp. All of these positions are paid salary positions that include housing and meals.

We have a few more job fairs to attend in March and will continue to recruit until all of our positions are filled.  The ideal candidates will have knowledge of conservation, outdoor skills, and environmental education as well as demonstrate a mature and responsible attitude.  We have hired back several of our very best staff from last year but we still have openings in several positions. We are currently looking for a Lifeguard/Waterfront Director, a Grounds/ Facility maintenance person, a Health Officer and as always male counselors.

Each of our camp staff learns the importance of teaching techniques, camper motivation, behavior management, leadership and emergency procedures plus the many different curricula they will be instructing as part of their training. Background checks are completed for all staff hired and participation in a weeklong training session is a requirement for employment. All staff must also to be willing to become First Aid and CPR certified before the beginning of the camp season.

We are extremely proud of the staff we have hired over the years at Cedar Lake Outdoor Center.


If you are interested in working at the Michigan OutofDoors Youth Camp during the summer of 2018, now is the time to apply. If you have questions or would like to see what jobs we currently have available, you can visit the camp website at www.mucccamp.org.  You can also contact Camp Director Tyler Butler, via phone (517-346-6462), email (tbutler@mucc.org) or post…
