Now Hiring: Adventure Camp Counselors

Apply to become a counselor at Variety’s Adventure Camp!

Variety St. Louis is looking for kind, enthusiastic staff members and volunteers (ages 14+) to join our team for Summer Camp 2023. Our unique camp programs are free to area children and teens (ages 4 – 20) with a physical or developmental disability. Counselors and volunteers work closely with campers to ensure the children have a fun and memorable experience while trying new things, participating in engaging activities, and making friends.

Summer Camp 2023 Schedule:
Week 1: June 5 – 9

Week 3: June 19 – 23
Week 4: July 10 – 14

The location of camp will change daily to accommodate different activities and adventures. Each will be located within the St. Louis region. We are looking for staff in all paid positions – counselors, lead counselors, and specialists – as well as volunteer counselor assistants.

Counselors work one-on-one with a camper to provide support and encouragement through daily camp activities, which include swimming, ice skating, fishing, playing games, making crafts, music time, visiting area attractions and more. Lead Counselors lead a group of campers and their counselors, assists, and guides as needed. Specialists plan and lead specialized activities, rotating between camper groups and working with all campers and counselors. Volunteer Counselor Assistants will be assigned to a child/counselor to provide additional support and encouragement throughout daily camp activities. Click here to learn more about each position.

Come join our team at Adventure Camp and experience what it’s like to give the gift of independence, self-esteem, and friendship to kids with disabilities this Summer!
