We are always looking for motivated, positive people to join our amazing staff.
Cedar Brook’s goal is to attract and secure the best and brightest camp professionals during the off-season. Just having a pulse and a winsome smile isn’t enough to qualify as a Cedar Brook team member. Our screening process involves challenging job-interview questions, contacting all provided references, and thorough background checks. This exhaustive process results in us hiring team members who do much more than help kids play kickball or draw pictures. Our Counselors and Specialists are youth-development professionals that foster an atmosphere of trust and respect, promote learning, and trying new experiences. We don’t hire teachers and college students who just want a summer job; we want a team that’s passionate about working with young people.
