Each term is five (5) weeks long, and the full summer is nine (9) weeks long.
Summer Leaders are asked to commit to at least one term, minimum. (Returning Summer Leaders who have availability less than one term are welcome to apply, but will not be issued contracts until spring 2023, on an as-needed basis.)
If you are interested in working more than one term, we will contract you for a different position or location for each term. (IE, if you want to be at Indiana Overnight all summer - be a counselor the first term, and then an Activity Specialist the second term; if you want to be a counselor all summer - spend the first term with a Day Camp, team and the second term at Michigan Overnight!)
Whether you are working one term or the full summer, you'll be able to request one (1) week off!
Leadership positions and some specialist positions will only be available if you commit to the full summer (both terms).
All Summer Leaders will be required to participate in preliminary online training as well as on-site training (dates TBA).
If you've recently spent a summer at a SpringHill Overnight Camp, you know what cross-training is.
In 2023, we are hiring Summer Leaders to be a Counselor OR an Activity Specialist…not both at the same time. (However, if you want to do both, check out what we have to say about that under the "Terms" section.)
Guest Groups typically involve a church or other large group coming to camp and bringing their own counselors. The SpringHill Summer Leader team helps to facilitate the Guest Group's week at camp in various ways.
Some Summer Leaders will be doing the same job, as if it was just a normal week of camp (like Activity Specialists). Other Summer Leaders will be serving in different roles, depending on what the needs of the group are.
Needs change with every group, so it's a great way to see a new aspect of camp!
We'll be trying out a brand new SpringHill Experience this summer called Family Experiences.
More details as summer gets closer — stay tuned!
Overnight Camp is how SpringHill started! Every summer thousands of kids come to one of our Overnight Camp locations for a week of adventure, learning, and growing. Whether in Evart, Michigan or Seymour, Indiana, SpringHill Overnight is a fast-paced, high-energy experience for kids in grades 1-12.
A job at Overnight Camp requires no travel, kids spend the night, and you live on a SpringHill property all summer.
Overnight Camp positions include counselor, lifeguard, horse wrangler, videographer, photographer, activity leader and more!
Day Camp is all about bringing a SpringHill experience to communities throughout the Midwest. We partner with local churches to provide the fun and excitement of SpringHill to kids pre-K – 5th grade…right in their own community.
When you work for Day Camp it's like being on one giant road trip all summer long! Travel to different cities, serve in different neighborhoods, and meet kids from different backgrounds. Spend the summer serving the local church and providing a fun summer experience to families.
Positions at Day Camp include counselor, media director, inclusion counselor, and more!
