At Steve & Kate's, we put kids in the driver’s 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 they’ll 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 that’s ready to play hard, be goofy, and help kids learn to trust themselves, to join our team. As a Summer Staff member, you’ll 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:

And if you’re inspired by what we do but not cut out for a Summer Staff role, we’re also hiring for Assistant Director and Admin positions at our Winter, Midwinter, Spring and Summer Camps (check out our to see our other openings).
A bit more about us.
We’re 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 & Kate’s, campers have license to determine wherever across camp they’d 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. We’re owned by a husband and wife named Steve and Kate, and we’ve 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 & Kate’s 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.
