Camp Soles is more than just a summer camp. We are a home to a lucky few, and home away from home for many more.

You will have an opportunity to see children flourish under your care… to see yourself grow in such a short period of time … this is the profound change that so many staff members experience. Friendships among staff develop here that can last a lifetime. Our staff members come from various local universities as well as out of state and as far as Australia and Europe. Working at camp can truly be life-changing!

We are looking for people:
  • Who support our mission to enable children to build friendships, develop responsibility and create memories
  • Who can be positive role models to their campers and fellow staff members
  • Who have a genuine love for positively impacting the world around them
  • Who are kind, patient, and have a great sense of humor
  • Who have a love for the outdoors and are happy to share that with children
