StaffApply for Summer 2024!
This Is The Summer Job for You!
We are looking for enthusiastic, fun-loving, and caring counselors to lead our campers. We’re looking for YOU! In everyday situations, counselors model integrity by helping, encouraging, and inspiring campers to grow in character.
CBS is one of the few summer jobs where you can help shape a child’s life - mentoring them and participating in their lives in a meaningful way. You will live in the cabin with the kids, start your day with them, eat meals with them, lead and participate in their activities, play games with them — it’s a full day!
This summer, you can expect to work hard, play harder, build friendships that will last a lifetime, and want to come back to do it all again!
The right men and women for the job.
Each summer, we welcome counselors from over 25 college campuses who are passionate about spending their summers with at camp, working with our campers, and serving as positive role models.
