Your summer at Greystone will be fun, purposeful, engaging, and joy-filled. This job is not always easy, but we care deeply about taking care of our staff so that you are equipped to do your work well.
We know that time off is essential so that you can joyfully engage in our community, so we offer our counselors a variety of breaks throughout each week and each session.
Our full-summer counselors have 1 day off during June Camp, 3 days off during Main Camp, and a half day off before the start of August Camp. In between sessions, you will have an additional day off to spend away from camp to refresh. We also give our counselors additional time off during the week, as well as some evenings off throughout each session.
Your time off is your own, and we encourage staff to use their breaks in ways that are most restful to them. We also offer resources and spaces to help you make the most of the time you have. Staff can take advantage of our day off house and our Counselor Hut, as well as our full camp facilities. Whether you stay on camp property or venture out to our surrounding cities, we will help make your time off as restful and fun as possible!
At Greystone, we value hard work, and our pay is competitive in the camping industry. We offer a substantial full-summer bonus and additional pay for years of experience, certifications, and job responsibilities.
