Warmth, tradition, spirit!
Camp Schodack Celebrating our 67th summer! The atmosphere at Schodack is best described in our camp motto: warmth, tradition, and spirit. We pride ourselves on hiring caring and enthusiastic counselors who love working with children. With 280 campers and 200 staff—an incredible ratio—you will become an integral part of the campers' lives, sharing encouragement, hugs, and cheers on a daily basis. Location: Upstate New York in the foothill of the Berkshires on a beautiful 100 acres of privately owned land. Just 2.5 hours from Boston and Manhattan.
By working at Schodack we can guarantee you two things: you will work hard AND you will have the most rewarding summer of your life. Whether you work in a bunk, coach a sport, or are an activity specialist you will be a role model for children who will look up to you and make a lasting impression on your life. Our staff can’t believe how quickly the summer flies by and we're fortunate that many choose to come back summer after summer. We require staff training in the weeks leading up to the campers’ arrival. All staff attends this training and it provides invaluable information about the Schodack experience. You learn all the details of being a staff member, find out about the campers in your group, and have fun getting to meet and bond with your fellow staff members. By the time orientation is over, you feel you are fully prepared for the campers’ arrival and you have made many new friends on the staff. We may also require additional training or preparation from you prior to your arrival at camp.
