Employment Interest

We are now hiring interested Wilderness Trip Leaders for summer 2018!

Summer 2018 dates: May 15 to August 11


  • You must have a current Wilderness First Responder certification.

  • You must be at least 19 years old. (This is 3 years older than the oldest campers; average age of staff is 23/24; it is not uncommon to have 29 year old counselors… 39 happens too!)

  • We have a strong preference for folks that can start in mid-April and stay through Mid-September, working pre- and post-season groups (family camps and school groups).  Post season work closing down camp is available as well, lasting until October.  There are also a few site readiness positions beginning the start of April.

  • If you are wondering about applying, please call us up — we are very friendly and would love to say a quick hello!  

General questions?  Feel free to e-mail us (applications@campaugusta.org) or give us a ring: 530-265-3702
