Each morning, right at sunrise, a pack of young and rambunctious puppies drag their parents into our daycare, and can't wait to greet their fellow pup-mates. The pups are full of energy and literally bouncing off the walls. Sometimes they play with each other nicely, but other times, they play too rough. Or they may have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed that morning, and would prefer to stay away from the other dogs that day. On top of that, the pups are prone to having accidents, usually of the pottying variety.

This is where you come in. As a Canine Specialist, you will be in charge of the dogs when they want to play with each other, and when they don't. You'll encourage them to play nicely with each other, but must be ready to step in and interrupt them when they start to play too rough. You'll also need to recognize when a dog is having a bad hair day, and needs your help to keep the other dogs away. Your day will also be filled with constant cleaning, as potty accidents are frequent, and must be cleaned immediately.

All our team members are passionate about caring for pets.  We work together as a team, and are committed to being the best in the industry.  The work is hard, but we always carry a positive attitude, and recognize that our hard work is helping dogs live a happier and healthier lifestyle.  When we do a great job, we give credit to the team members that made it possible.

Key Results Areas:

Safe animal care — handling dogs ethically, and keeping them safe with minimal fights and injuries

Fun animal care — keep dogs engaged and happy through physical activity, mental activity, and dog training games

Cleanliness and sanitation — keeping the facility clean and odor-free

Client interactions — always eager to help our pet parents and provide them with frequent stories about their pup in daycare

Attendance — punctuality and prompt communication about running late and scheduling conflicts

Communication — frequent communication about the dogs, customers, and how to improve our daycare

Additional Requirements:

• Passion and love for all canines

• Great at talking to people

• Always clean and organized

• Comfortable with all dogs, including large dogs

• Able to lift at least 50 lbs

• Perform physically strenuous work all-day

• Must be 18 years of age or older

• Able to start shifts as early as 6:30 AM, or shifts that end as late as 9:00 PM

• Takes initiative and is innovative in a start-up type of environment

Previous experience in dog care helpful, but not required. We will provide training in play group management, dog handling techniques, and sanitation.  Having a valid driver's license is also helpful, but not required.

Compensation range is $15.59-$20.58 per hour, depending on performance.  We also provide an opportunity to earn performance-based bonuses and additional income opportunities.

To summarize, we are looking for individuals who find immense joy in interacting with animals and their human pet parents.  We are also looking for individuals who have an appreciation for new businesses, new ideas, and a strong desire to achieve great results in a supportive team environment.

Camp Counselor at Summer Day Camp Where Kids Rule
Camp Session: Jun 15 - Aug 14, 2020 (start and end date will vary depending on site-specific training and move-in/move-out dates)
Location: The Cove School, Corte Madera, CA

At Steve & Kate's, we put kids in the drivers seat and staff come along for the ride. Campers choose minute to minute what they do, with whom, and for how long, because kids who learn to make decisions today build the self-confidence theyll need to wrangle unknowns tomorrow. Sound like something you can get behind? If so, we're looking for motivated babysitters, teachers, coaches, students, athletes, art, tech, food and education enthusiasts, and anyone else thats ready to play hard, be goofy, and help kids learn to trust themselves, to join our team. As a Summer Staff member, youll sharpen your inherent leadership skills and do meaningful work, while getting an immersive summer of creativity and play.

The job in a nutshell.

We have a range of full-time Summer Staff roles at our summer camps including:



  • Support Staff for our youngest campers, who are tireless advocates for our 4 and 5 year olds that help them transition into camp by introducing new activities, encouraging friendships and ensuring their basic needs are met.


  • Activity Leads, who act as guides and facilitators to inspire campers curiosity while ensuring children are safe, engaged and supported in activities such as The Sewing Salon, The Media Lab, The Bakery, Blocktopolis, The Arcade, The Drawing Room, Karaoke Club, Crochet Corner, and more.


  • Sports & Rec Leads, who run epic Dodgeball tournaments, fierce Capture the Flag competitions, and spirited Soccer matches (along with other sports activities), in addition to operating outrageous recreational equipment like giant inflatable slip and slides and obstacle courses.


  • Photo Video Lead, who will spend most of their time organizing live action film shoots with kids and helping them in our Media Lab, but also snap pictures and videos of campers in action to send to their parents (Note: Youll shoot on an iPhone / iPad and do basic editing using iMovie for iOS)


  • Food Operations Staff, who interact with and keep hundreds of campers, staff, and parents nourished and happy each day by overseeing The Market. (Note: There is little to no food prep on site, so no culinary experience is required, and its totally fine if you dont own one of those silly chefs hats.)

  • And theres typically plenty of opportunity to mix and match roles, so if youre a coder who likes to crochet, or a sporty seamstress, you wont have to settle on just one of your passions!


How do you know if youre the right candidate?

If you answer yes to all of the questions below, definitely apply now.


  • Do you appreciate and agree with our self-directed approach for kids?

  • Are you comfortable leading groups of kids on your own, but also working with and being accountable to a team?

  • Do you have the stamina to keep up (literally) with 4-12 yr. olds bursting with energy and creative potential? And, if needed, can you bench press a kindergartener (or at least lift up to 30 lbs)?

  • Are you serious about having fun, willing to work hard but also let loose when the time calls?

  • Please read this doc for additional details regarding Steve & Kate seasonal staff responsibilities and requirements


Even if youre new to working with kids or dont have experience in our specific programs, if youre motivated to learn, well get you up to speed with our paid training and development program. And if youre inspired by what we do but not cut out for a Summer Staff role, were also hiring for Assistant Director and Admin positions at our Winter, Midwinter, Spring and Summer Camps (check out our Jobs page to see our other openings).




A bit more about us.

Were the people who pie-oneered self-directed summer camps starting way back in 1980 and introduced the most flexible and fair attendance system in the industry. At Steve & Kates, campers have license to determine wherever across camp theyd like to explore: The Media Lab, Sewing Salon, Blocktopolis, The Bakery, Crochet Corner, and more. Kids decide what they do and where they do it, giving them the confidence to risk, fail and rise and develop self-knowledge and deep trust in their instincts and capabilities. Were owned by a husband and wife named Steve and Kate, and weve grown to nearly 40 locations in 10 states.

In order to create a camp where every child feels safe, respected, empowered, and a sense of belonging, Steve & Kates needs seasonal and year-round teams that represent the richness and diversity of our local communities. We are an equal-opportunity employer that strives to have staff members of all races, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, religions, socio-economic backgrounds and abilities join us in helping kids (and adults) learn to trust themselves and one another. We also strive to create an environment where work, learning, and play is inclusive, equitable, and accessible for all.

Camp staffers work hard. Very hard. You can expect days in which theres a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it.
