Working at Blue Lake Fine Arts camp is both rewarding and demanding. It requires a great deal of stamina, enthusiasm, interpersonal skill, and patience, as well as the ability to work effectively with others. Days are long, with many hours and little time off. Nevertheless, staff members must remain receptive to our campers’ needs and take seriously the responsibility of nurturing them in a safe and engaging environment. Our number one priority is to ensure our campers have the most amazing summer camp experience. We therefore suggest that you carefully consider these expectations, along with your personal commitment to them, before applying to work with us this summer.
Before applying, make sure you have read the information provided about the positions, assistantships, artistic opportunities, policies, and dates of availability. There is no deadline for submitting application materials. Blue Lake interviews candidates and fills positions on a rolling basis, as we receive completed applications.
