Camp Nock-A-Mixon is co-ed, single session, overnight (residential) camp. It's first summer was 1939. The current owners bought the camp in 1981 having attended camp before buying. It is a traditional camp which means we do not have a specific activity that is considered a specialty. Instead we offer all kinds of various activities, all kinds of sports, along with lake (waterfront) fun, climbing wall, STEM, nearly all varieties of arts, along with theater, music, and drama as well as several pools. The camp's goal each summer is for the campers and staff to have a safe fun summer. People leave camp with broader horizons, more confidence, and a bunch of great stories and memories.
There are about 500 campers in camp with another 225 staff members. No matter what position you have at camp there are so much opportunity to meet new people, and interact with them daily. The camp also has so many great activities (listed in the description and more detail on the website) that there is something for everyone. So whatever you like to do in your spare time there is a group of people on site ready to do the same. The camp also brings in guest entertainers, DJs, carnival games and floats, along with a list of different camp activities. The great things about working at camp is that you get out of it what you put into it. When you are not working, if you want to chill by the lake with the book you can do that or if you want to jump on the water trampoline, you can do that too.
Camp is like it's own small city. Virtually everything someone needs is already provided by the camp. So you can spend no money and leave camp with your entire check. Food, housing, laundry, wifi, even some camp gear is all provided in addition to your salary. Of course, you can use the facility and the personnel for the area.
The people who well at camp have the same qualities in all camp jobs. First of, they are hard working. While camp (specifically Nock-A-Mixon) is a great place to work is not a job that can be done on autopilot. Energetic and fun people have a great time. Everything at camp can made into something fun with the right mindset. Flexibility is also important. Some days it rains, some times its hot. Something might be broken. People who let that which is out of their control not ruin an opportunity to have a different good time come back to Nock-A-Mixon for years.
Most housing is either private or 1 roommate. All of the housing is free with AC and bathroom.
We are really close to Philadelphia, Atlantic City (beach town) and New York. There are a few National parks in the area but there are many state parks close by. Nock-A-Mixon State park is less than 2 miles. There is a lot of climbing and a huge lake in that park. There are also some smaller towns close like Doylestown and Easton. Both in PA.
All meals are included and served in the camp dining room. As the camp director, I eat all of my meals in the dining hall so do the owners. There is no other meal. So its keep the quality up.
If you want to bring your RV and live there you are welcome to do that. We would have to discuss what you have and what hook ups you would require.
