Staff training begins before any meetings take place at camp. Camp Chipinaw utilizes Expert Online Training to provide the finest online training program. Each staff member is assigned a specific curriculum of video modules that teach them how to supervise, lead and nurture healthy relationships. The faculty of instructors include leaders in the field of child psychology, summer camps, youth development, and education. We also provide a week long orientation at camp.

Thank you for your interest in working at Chipinaw & Silver Lake!

Our summer camp is only as good as the staff it hires. That is why we search the globe for the most experienced and enthusiastic staff members we can find, from England to Australia and across the US.

We are looking for general counselors, specialist counselors, leadership positions, and support staff for the upcoming summer. The leadership roles we fill each summer range from department heads and group leaders to medical staff and office assistants. Our support staff members work behind the scenes as kitchen staff, maintenance workers, groundskeepers, and housekeepers to ensure the day to day operations of camp are handled professionally. Generally, most of our counselors are aged between nineteen and twenty-five, while our leadership staff are more experienced and have worked their way up the camp ladder. For a complete list, view our staff positions.


If you feel you have the outgoing, fun personality to be a part of the Chipinaw Family, then make sure to apply! Don't forget to visit our FAQ's section to learn more about our traditional coed summer camp.
