We are a children’s summer day camp looking for education majors and recent college grads with teaching certifications to work with our campers this summer.

You probably decided to work in education because you discovered early on that you have a natural talent for connecting with children. We can provide you with an environment that will give you a chance to work with children on a daily basis and let you gain even more classroom experience. You will be working with people who share your passion for teaching. I was in your shoes at one time as an education major that was looking for any opportunity to practice my teaching and coaching skills. Camp gave me the perfect place to get that practice. Everything I was learning in my education classes I could put into practice during the summer. It made all the difference and helped me going into my first interviews and my first teaching job in Bergen County.

We can help prepare you for your future career in education by:
1) Giving you experience with a specific age group.
2) Helping you discover what age group is ideal for you.
3) Helping you get comfortable with a grade you had previously thought would not be a fit.
4) Gaining more confidence running your own classroom, with behavior management, and how children go about learning.
5) Getting you coaching from the experienced teachers and school administrators who work at Ramapo.
6) Helping you make a connection with those same principals and teachers who are at Ramapo that may also be looking for talented teachers to join their school staff.
7) Giving you specific experiences beyond student teaching to talk about in your teaching interviews. It will show those who will one day interview you that you sought out as many teaching environments as you could to make yourself a better educator.
8) Being around others who share your enthusiasm for the teaching profession.

2022 Camp Dates: June 26th to August 18th  - (39 Camp Days)

There is also an employment application you can complete on the website.

We have full summer positions available - 8 weeks. If you are not available for the full camp season we also have 6, 5 and 4 week positions.

We look for four things in hiring a new staff member:
• “We hire the smile, train the skill.” - You can’t teach someone to be a nice person.We can teach a nice person how to improve any skill.
• Maturity beyond their years - How does this person carry themselves?
• Does this person care? – What empathy, care, warmth and enthusiasm do they have for wanting to be a part of a
child’s summer camp experience.
• Is this someone who would rather do more or less?

We invest time to make sure anyone we hire meets these important characteristics. We also feel people who have these characteristics want to be around other people who will care the way they do.

We welcome any questions you may have please call or e-mail us with them.
