Summer Staff

Strong Staff    Staff 2013   Staff Boys


The most important aspect of any camp is the quality of its staff. At Camp Herrlich we pride ourselves on our long-standing tradition of hiring caring, competent, and experienced individuals, many of whom return year after year. Our staff is carefully selected from around the world and around the corner based on skills, maturity, ethical values and the ability to provide a positive experience for all the children we serve.  We are a family at Camp Herrlich and we have the highest expectations for all of our staff members.  

We are looking for dedicated, reliable and responsible individuals to join the Camp Herrlich team. Caring for children is a special job that requires patience, creativity, a good sense of humor, and leadership. We go to great lengths to find those persons who will be positive role models, will be true to the Camp Herrlich mission and uphold our philosophies, and will enrich the lives of the campers the most.  Campers will remember their "favorite" counselor for the rest of their lives.

When considering a staff position at Camp Herrlich, remember that we exist for the camper, and their needs always come first. Your role as a Camp Herrlich staff member will be challenging and demanding, rewarding and exhilarating at the same time. In short, we like to say "it's the hardest job you'll ever love!"

If you think you have what it takes to be part of the Camp Herrlich Team, we invite you to complete a staff application. Three references are also required when being considered for hire. These references must be completed by individuals who are not family members.

Positions are limited!  We will begin accepting applications in December 2014 for Summer 2015.  All applications AND completed reference forms are due before March 1st, 2015.

As a Camp Herrlich staff member you will be required to complete an orientation before the summer begins.  You will be given orientation dates during your interview.
