Brant Lake Camp is hiring for summer 2023!
Being a counselor at Brant Lake is an incredibly challenging and rewarding experience unlike any other. Working with young children and adults, and making a difference in their lives will leave you feeling fulfilled and will even make a profound and significant impact on your own life. Why work at BLC?
Who Are Our Staff?
Our staff consists of around 100-120 counselors each summer, with half returning from previous summers. Additionally, we have 30 Key Staff members, who are over the age of 25 and have been with us multiple summers. About 70% of our staff are coming from the United States, and about 75% are male. In addition to Brant Lake Camp, we also run Brant Lake Dance Camp (BLDC) and Brant Lake Sports Academy (BLSA), which allows us additional employment opportunities for female counselors.
Why Work at BLC?
Making a Difference. Working at Brant Lake is both challenging and rewarding in equal measure. Working with young people and making a difference in their lives is a profound and significant contribution to the world in which we live.
It’s fun! It is difficult to have a bad day when you are working in a picturesque environment in the Adirondacks, surrounded by good people and happy smiling campers. Many of our campers and counselors describe their time at BLC as the best experience of their lives. Many return, just to visit. Working at BLC is challenging- but guaranteed you will make new friends, have fun along the way and memories to cherish.
Friendships. Once you walk onto the Brant Lake campus you become part of our family. You will undoubtedly make new friendships. As evidenced by the longevity of our Key Staff, some of these friendships will last a lifetime.
Philosophy. At Brant Lake Camp, we believe we have a unique and thoughtful approach to caring for kids. It starts with really knowing each and every one of them– from their unique personalities, to what sports they like, whether they are lefty or righty, who their friends are, and a whole lot more.
