For summer 2017, we are accepting application for Lifeguards (must be 16) and Water Safety Instructors. We are no longer accepting applications for Counselors-In-Training (CIT) at this time.
Camp Briar Hill is a great place to work! We have a tremendous staff that we are very proud of. Much of our staff returns year after year. We feel that Briar Hill is a terrific place for young people to gain valuable experience while still having fun.
Most of our camp staff start as counselors in training (C.I.T.s). These are unpaid positions for young people that are at least 14 years of age, although they do receive tips from parents at the end of the summer. They “learn the ropes” from more experienced counselors. Our paid counselors are almost exclusively chosen from our C.I.T.s. We occasionally hire specialty staff or group leaders from outside when we do not have suitable internal candidates.
You must download and submit an application. To be complete, applications must include three contact references. Each reference must provide a written recommendation. We begin accepting applications in December and scheduling interviews in January after we have heard back from our returning staff. Interviews consist of a short meeting with two members of our leadership team so that we can get to know applicants. Hiring is selective. Not all applicants will be interviewed and not all interviews will result in an employment offer. Please fill out your application carefully and tell us why you will be a great addition to Briar Hill.
