INSTRUCTOR WORKSHOPS
Some staff members have improved their ability as an instructor by attending a workshop prior to staff orientation. Some workshops offer certifications as well. If there's a workshop in your local area that you'd be interested in attending, let us know. If we approve your workshop attendance prior to you enrolling in the workshop, we'll gladly reimburse you for one-half the cost of the workshop if: 1) You successfully complete the workshop and obtain certification as a result of the workshop, and 2) You successfully complete your summer employment contract from start date to end date. Most workshops are typically sponsored by the American Red Cross. You can contact your local American Red Cross Chapter for more details.

MORE INFORMATION

EMPHASIS ON QUALITY INSTRUCTION – NOT COMPETITION!
Camp Cayuga is noncompetitive in philosophy. Our daily program stresses self-improvement with emphasis on instruction rather than competition. For this reason, we place special emphasis on quality instruction and pursue all applicants who have demonstrated their skill level as a player in the sport/activity, as well as their experience instructing/coaching children in the same sport/activity. Quality instruction with a healthy mix of recreational playing time not only stimulates camper interest, but also develops self-confidence. Instructors are expected to prepare a lesson plan for each activity they have been hired to teach, and each lesson plan is to take into account the different skill levels of each camper. Applicants with current certification in their hired area of expertise are preferred. Other certifications, such as first-aid & CPR, are also preferred.

YOUR ACTIVITY INSTRUCTOR SCHEDULE
Activity instructors will receive a schedule each morning indicating period by period your instructor responsibilities for that day. For the majority of our counselors, this includes instructing 2 periods in the morning and 4 periods in the afternoon. For example, you may be assigned to teach Dance for both morning periods, Gymnastics for 2 afternoon periods, and Pottery for the remaining 2 periods. For the most part, your instructor schedule varies daily.

GENERAL STAFF DUTIES
In addition to instructing/coaching responsibilities, counselors are also responsible for "general" duties. Some of these duties include:

KEEP YOUR CABIN NEAT & CLEAN
Counselors are expected to clean and tidy-up their cabin each morning. Your campers are assigned clean-up duties to assist you. However, only the cabin counselors are permitted to clean the cabin's bathroom since the use of disinfectants by campers is provided. Cabin inspections are performed on a daily basis by your Division Director.

INSURE GOOD PERSONAL HYGIENE OF CAMPERS
Counselors are to insure their cabin campers take a shower and change clothes on a daily basis. You are also expected to visually inspect each of your campers for health concerns on a daily basis.

SUPERVISE YOUR CAMPERS AT ALL TIMES
Counselors are expected to supervise the campers at the activity sites during the activity program. When the activity program is not operating (or when you're not instructing), you are responsible for supervising your "cabin" campers. This would include times like: cabin clean-up, wash-up periods before meals, mealtimes, free-time after meals, flagpole assemblies, rest periods, and bed-time.

PARTICIPATE & ASSIST
All staff are required to get involved with the kids! We want you, as well as our campers, to participate in all activities and have fun at the same time. Participation is required not only during the daily activity program, but also during evening activities (socials/dances, skit nights, etc.), special events (Carnival, Boating Regatta, Olympics, Beach Bash, Backwards Day, etc.) and off-camp trips (amusement parks, etc.). For example, you're not only expected to help your campers with their Halloween costume for the Halloween social, but you too are expected to be wearing a Halloween costume! And, during the social we expect you to participate - whether it be dancing or simply helping the kids. As mentioned previously, you're the role model for your cabin campers. When you dress-up for the social, do some dancing, laugh, and have fun - so will your kids. It's that simple!

KNOW THE NEEDS, INTERESTS, AND OBJECTIVES FOR YOUR CAMPERS
The Camper Profile Form was developed for this reason. This form is completed by the parent and is very informative for our camp staff because it typically includes parental concerns, suggestions, and objectives for the summer. These forms are on file at camp. We expect all appropriate staff to be aware of (and follow-up) all requests noted on the Forms if they concern the staff member's area of responsibility. "The details" is what separates a "good camp" from an "excellent camp", and of course, at Cayuga we're all about the details!

WAKE-UP DUTY, DINING HALL IN-CHARGE DUTY, MEAL-SERVING DUTY
Some counselors will be assigned the duty of waking-up our camp population (we use a bell). This is referred to as "Wake-Up Duty". Counselors may also be assigned to monitor crowd control in the dining hall during meal times. This is referred to as "Dining Hall In-Charge Duty". In addition, some counselors may be assigned to help us serve meals (we serve cafeteria-style) in the dining hall during mealtimes. This is referred to as "Meal Serving Duty". Depending upon your daily instructional schedule and your co-cabin counselor's schedule, you may never be assigned to these duties if it interferes with camper supervision responsibilities.

LOOKOUT DUTY
Some counselors will be scheduled to assist our lifeguards as a “lookout” for special events and evening pool parties. By the way, all counselors are given a swim test and are given training as a “lookout” during staff orientation.

OFFICE DUTY
Occasionally a few counselors may be assigned a period or two to help our office staff or evening program staff with a special project. (We first ask for volunteers & typically get enough help.) Some of the program projects include preparing materials for our evening activities, special events and trips. Some of the office projects include sorting mail & packages, delivering phone messages, and preparing mailings to campers' parents.

2 SEPARATE CAMPUSES
Cayuga's natural landscape divides 350 acres into two separate campuses on the same estate. This is a unique feature that distinguishes Cayuga from other traditional summer camps! Each campus is located on opposite sides of our lake and operates self-sufficiently with its own Dining Hall, Gymnasium, Creative Arts Pavilion, Swimming Pool, Activity Sites, Infirmary, & Program Office. Campers entering 8th grade & lower reside on Junior Campus, which accommodates about 120 boys & 120 girls. (Click here for more details about Junior Campus.) Campers entering 8th grade & higher who are 13 years of age & older reside on Teen Campus which houses about 75 girls & 75 boys. (Click here for more details about Teen Campus.) With two separate campuses, we can provide two separate programs geared to the different age groups on each campus.

EVENING ACTIVITY PROGRAM
The highlight of each day at Camp Cayuga comes at night when we begin the evening activities. Whether it's MTV Nite or the Counselor Hunt, this is the time when the entire camp unites, and camper enthusiasm & spirit peaks! Our Evening Activity Program is different every night of the summer. On Junior Campus the evening program begins at 7:45pm just after flag-lowering. On Teen Campus the evening program starts at 8:45pm. In the interests of our youngsters & teenagers, most evening activities are scheduled separately on each campus. (Click here for this summer's Calendar Of Events, which includes all evening activities.)

SPECIAL EVENTS & TRIPS PROGRAM
Special Events are scheduled weekly and include some of the wackiest activities of the summer. This summer's Special Events include: The Camp Cayuga Carnival, Apache Relay, Camper-Counselor Day, Backwards Day, Annual Camp Olympics, Boating Regatta, Wacky Water Carnival, Beach Bash, Visiting Days, and full-day trips to Dorney Amusement Park & The Wild Water Kingdom, and Hershey Amusement Park & The Chocolate World. They're great days! (Click here for this summer's Calendar Of Events, which includes the dates of all Special Events & Trips.)

STAFF ORIENTATION
In an effort to get our staff members acquainted with one another and become familiar with Cayuga's facilities, an Orientation is held at camp a few days prior to the arrival of our campers. During Orientation we hold training sessions & group workshops; explain camp policies & procedures; and organize social events for our staff members. During the first-half of Orientation, counselors are housed in cabins with other counselors to help everyone get to know one another. During the second-half of Orientation, counselors move into their assigned cabins for the summer. Orientation is an important training tool for our staff because it produces a close-knit staff team, confident of their skills and prepared for their campers!

INSTRUCTOR WORKSHOPS
Some staff members have improved their ability as an instructor by attending a workshop prior to staff orientation. Some workshops offer certifications as well. If there’s a workshop in your local area that you’d be interested in attending, let us know. If we approve your workshop attendance prior to you enrolling in the workshop, we’ll gladly reimburse you for one-half the cost of the workshop if: 1) You successfully complete the workshop and obtain certification as a result of the workshop, and 2) You successfully complete your summer employment contract from start date to end date. Most workshops are typically sponsored by the American Red Cross. You can contact your local American Red Cross Chapter for more details.

BENEFITS PROVIDED

A LIFETIME REWARD
Spending your summer at camp with happy kids & a high-caliber staff team, who are from all over the world, is a benefit that can’t be underestimated! You’ll develop strong friendships that will last a lifetime. You’ll have the opportunity to make a positive impact upon the lives of our campers! You’ll utilize your talents & skills in your role as an instructor! You’ll learn to be more patient & understanding! You’ll learn all sorts of things about kids! You’ll learn about the summer camp business (policies, safety procedures, camp regulations)! You’ll also learn a great deal about yourself! And you’ll learn whether or not you still want to be a school teacher by the end of the summer (ha, ha)! The valuable rewards you’ll gain at Cayuga this summer will last forever! Yes indeed, your experience at summer camp is unlike any other life experience! (To read comments by parents & staff, click here.)

SALARY
Summer salaries vary according to the applicant's educational background, current certifications, skill level, summer camp experience, experience working with children, general talents, and your level of ability as a player & instructor for each activity you're hired to teach.

LAUNDRY SERVICE PROVIDED
Your salary includes a weekly laundering of your clothing and linens. Since the washing is done in bulk by cabin group, it is required that all staff members label their belongings for identification purposes. This free service is voluntary. There are local laundromats in Honesdale for those individuals who prefer to do their own laundering on their nights or days off.

FOOD SERVICE PROVIDED
Your salary includes 3 meals daily. All meals, with the exception of barbecues and cookouts, are served cafeteria-style in the Junior Campus and Teen Campus dining halls. Counselors sit with their cabin campers at assigned tables during meal times. We take a lot of pride in the quality of the food we serve to our staff. Our Food Service Manager is certified by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Bureau of Food Safety and has managed Cayuga's food service for the past 5 summers. Assisting the Food Service Manager are 3 restaurant-trained chefs who prepare three well-balanced, nutritious meals daily. Our menu changes each week and is designed to appeal to the taste buds of our campers & staff. Our meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit are of the very best quality. Fruits and vegetables are served daily, in addition to a complete salad bar at the lunch and dinner meals. If you’re a vegetarian or have any other dietary restrictions, you need to discuss your limitations with us during the hiring process. (To view a typical weekly menu, click here.)

ACCOMMODATIONS PROVIDED
Counselors reside in comfortable modern cabins with their assigned campers. Most cabins on Junior Campus accommodate 10 campers and 2 counselors. Most Teen Campus cabins accommodate up to 21 campers and 3 counselors. Each cabin has its own bathroom. Most Junior Campus cabin bathrooms include 3 private shower stalls, 3 private toilets, and 4 sinks. Most Teen Campus cabin bathrooms include 7 private shower stalls, 7 private toilets, and 8 sinks. (To see interior photos of a typical camper cabin or to take a virtual tour of a cabin, click here.) On the other hand, Senior Staff members share a room & bathroom with another adult(s), and do not reside in the camper cabins as do counselors. Camper cabin assignments take into account the child's school grade & camp session. Counselor cabin assignments take into account your day-off schedule and your daily instructional schedule, as well as your co-cabin counselor's day-off & instructional schedule. In order to provide 24-hour supervision, there's always a counselor on duty with each cabin group!

YOUR FREE TIME
There really isn’t much free time at camp for anyone! Our campers are “in-action” from morning until bedtime, and our staff members are “in-action” too … supervising & caring for the kids! (Click here for typical daily time schedule.)  But after your campers have retired after an action-packed day/evening program, you & your co-cabin counselor can rotate your free time in Cayuga’s staff lounge. As long as one of you are at the cabin with your campers, the other counselor can enjoy some “down-time” at the staff lounge. The lounge was recently constructed and features satellite television & high-speed internet access (you supply laptop). It’s a nice cozy place reserved exclusively for counselors, kitchen, & maintenance staff. Incidentally, the Cayuga Game Room is located in the same building and available to all counselors during downtime too! 

NIGHTS-OFF & DAYS-OFF
All staff members receive 12 nights-off and 6 days-off and during the camp’s 54-day season. Six nights-off are scheduled on the evening before your day-off and the remaining 6 nights-off take place on the evening of your day-off. For example: If your day-off is Thursday, your nights-off are Wednesday (the night before your day-off) and Thursday (the night of your day-off). For this example, you can depart camp at 7:00pm on Wednesday and need not return to camp until after midnight on Thursday night (it’s actually 12:15am on Friday). Your cabin curfew is 12:30am. (Senior Staff curfew is 1:00am.) Having a night-off, followed by a day-off, and the night of your day-off is a nice block of free time to visit the neighboring Pocono Mountain attractions, such as Bushkill Falls, white water rafting, and Scranton's discount clothing outlets. In the past, some counselors have visited other fun places like New York City, Jersey Shore, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC. In addition, Camp Cayuga is only 6 miles from the village of Honesdale (the birthplace of the American Railroad!). Honesdale is a fast-growing community loaded with many conveniences, including sandwich & coffee shops, McDonalds, Wendy’s, Pizza Hut, Dunkin Donuts, K-Mart, Walmart (open 24-hours), the Townhouse diner, local library, movie theatre, laundromats, car rental service, auto repair shops, and plenty of gas stations. By the way, you’re welcome to spend your days/nights-off at camp (but you’d be crazy - ha ha!). Most camp facilities are available to off-duty staff members as long as your use doesn’t interfere with our camper’s activity program.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICANT

INSTRUCTIONS FOR "COUNSELOR" APPLICANTS
All counselors are responsible for instructing various activities throughout the day. You can apply for as many instructor positions as you'd like.

In addition, we're interested in learning the reasons why you feel confident to lead the activities you've selected to instruct. Please remember to indicate all valid certifications you currently hold & any other certifications that were previously held but are now expired.

If the results of the background check are acceptable, we execute your contract and mail you a copy. Afterwards, we remain in touch with you via email and newsletter mailings. As you can imagine, the hiring process takes a lot of time and effort on our part, but it’s all worth it – because our staff is the #1 reason why Cayuga is successful!

APPLICANT REQUIREMENTS

THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST IN EMPLOYMENT
We welcome your interest in summer employment with Camp Cayuga. Before you complete our staff application, please take the time to read the pages in this "Job" section of our website. We believe this information will enable you to make an intelligent decision about your summer employment. Our hope is that a forthright presentation will attract individuals with a high success potential and discourage those who might not do well in the camp environment.

ELIGIBILITY AND AGE REQUIREMENT
Although many of our staff members return year after year, each summer we hire a number of individuals who will be spending their first summer at Camp Cayuga. Staff applicants must have completed one (1) year of college/university or must be at least 19 years of age. Our staff members are high-caliber individuals who are attending/have attended fine colleges and universities throughout the United States and Europe. Our youngest counselor is entering his/her sophomore year of college. Some of our counselors are young teachers and/or graduate students who are 22 or 23 years old. The average age counselor is 21 years old.

LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS
Each summer we employ many individuals from England, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, and other English-speaking countries. If you're not a United States citizen, you are required to obtain the appropriate legal documents authorizing your job position in the United States at Camp Cayuga. This includes a valid work visa, green card, or valid J-1 visa with IAP-66 form. Without proper legal documentation, you're ineligible to apply for employment. To obtain the appropriate legal document necessary to authorize your position at Cayuga, please refer to the "Instructions" page in this "Job Section" for more details, or click here.

THE #1 REASON FOR OUR SUCCESS IS OUR STAFF
Each year we receive over 2000 applications for staff positions at Camp Cayuga. It is a difficult and time-consuming process in deciding which individuals will perform best in our camp environment. Our experience in camping since 1957 has taught us this fact - the key factor for a successful, safe, and fun-filled summer is our staff. YOU are the #1 reason why Cayuga is successful! For this reason, we place special emphasis on hiring individuals who have demonstrated competency in working with children and the capacity to provide warm mature guidance. We pride ourselves on our staff and our close-knit family atmosphere!

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Camp counseling is not an easy job and it can be very difficult at times. In order to do well in camp, it's important to have a genuine interest in children. Unless you truly enjoy living and working with kids on a 24-hour basis, it is best not to seek employment at a summer camp. Job satisfaction has to be a key element in your desire to work at a summer camp. Since camp counseling positions, for the most part, do not pay as well as other summer jobs, the rewards you derive from working with children must be significant. Otherwise, the job will grow very tiresome during the course of the summer and your desire to continue employment will wane. Enjoying your time with our campers is critical. Being able to relate to children and assume responsibilities of supervision & care for children are essential qualities of a successful staff member. In short, we’re seeking talented, fun, outgoing, enthusiastic individuals who can provide quality instruction on various skill levels in 2 or more activities. Some questions you might ask yourself in order to evaluate your potential for success at Camp Cayuga are:
* Have you enjoyed working with children previously?
* Have you had a positive camp experience as a child?
* Have you ever worked at a summer camp before?
* To what extent have you worked with children?
* Can you live with children on a 24-hour basis?
* Can you adjust to the camp community with its rigid schedules, rules and regulations?

WE’RE SEEKING ROLE MODELS
As part of Cayuga's staff, you become a role model for our campers. Your behavior will have a big impact upon the lives of these youngsters! It stands to reason, therefore, that we are seeking individuals with high moral character. In the past, our staff members have exhibited good sportsmanship, strong loyalty, honesty, and the ability to work hard in order for the camp experience to be a memorable & positive one for our campers! We intend to continue this tradition at Cayuga this coming summer.

WE'RE SEEKING MULTI-TALENTED COUNSELORS
We're seeking multi-talented counselors who are qualified to teach more than one activity. Counselors are typically hired to instruct up to 5 different activities. With multi-talented counselors, we always have 2 or more instructors qualified to teach the same activity. This allows for more variety in the instructor's daily schedule. It also gives our Program Director the opportunity to assign instructors to an activity where they're needed most. In addition, hiring multi-talented counselors allows us to continue our daily activity program for 60 activities without any interruptions. Keep in mind that you may not be assigned to all of the activities you were hired to instruct. It simply depends upon the number of counselors who are qualified to instruct the same activity.
