Get your summer off to a great start by working at Camp Waldo, a two-week overnight summer camp in southern West Virginia. If you have experience working with children or in nature, this could be the perfect job for you. Earn money working in June to fund the rest of your summer!

We are looking for college students to join us for one week of training and two weeks of camp, June 9-30, 2019. We are paying staff $1200, plus providing all meals and housing. We’re also looking for a few counselors to stay an extra week to help set up and pack up camp for extra pay.

If you are interested in an internship following camp, we are happy to work with you! Camp Waldo is hosted by Appalachian Headwaters, a nonprofit organized to create a sustainable economy, restore our natural resources and strengthen communities throughout central Appalachia. We have programs in reforestation of mined lands, beekeeping science, native plant horticulture, and economic development. Learn more at

Camp is also a great way to build your resume! Check out these resources on how to translate camp experience in your job search.
