MountainCamp Staff

MountainCamp – A UU Summer Experience

Are you interested in changing the life of a youth by being a positive Unitarian Universalist role model? Do you want to motivate and inspire a camper to be the best that they can be? If you are, then you may be a good fit for a Summer Staff position at MountainCamp! MountainCamp is one of several youth programs offered by The Mountain Retreat and Learning Centers Inc. At The Mountain, each camper is treated with respect, kindness, and consideration; we celebrate their individual gifts. A balance is maintained between establishing structure and boundaries to keep youth safe and creating opportunities for them to “test their wings.” MountainCamp fosters belonging and acceptance.

During MountainCamp, several opportunities for rewarding experiences and possibilities for personal growth exist. Salaries run from $145 to $250 per week, dependent on position and experience, plus room and board.
