Summer Staff FAQs
All Camp Eagle employees are expected to maintain personal dress and appearance appropriate for their work position. Please use your best judgment, and dress in a manner that would not be offensive or cause others to stumble. Failure to dress appropriately may be addressed by the employee’s supervisor.
You’ll be in a harness for a good part of most days and one of the most uncomfortable things are short shorts, harnesses, and chafing. For example, the best harness shorts have around a 5-inch inseam.
Good shoes for hiking and walking every day: Chacos, Tevas, Bedrocks, and Tennis Shoes are a couple of examples.
Girls, one-piece swimsuits (or tankinis that provide full cover), and shorts that aren’t too short are required for all water activities.
Guys, keep your shirt on as much as possible unless you’re in the water.
Wearing your Camp Eagle wristband is required at all times.
Out at camp, we do not have cell coverage and rely on wifi for communication. During the summer, wifi is limited for seasonal staff but available during off time.
A landline phone is available and accessible 24/7.
All meals are provided with the summer staff salary and are served family-style. This includes both when campers are on property and on off-days. Coffee is made in the morning (of course), along with a cereal bar and fruit. A salad bar is available for both lunch and dinner. Some gluten and dairy-free options are also available. If you have certain dietary needs that are outside the ones listed above then please reach out to us!
The majority of our summer staff will be living in our dorm-style lodging in the middle of main camp. This 2-story lodging space is gender-specific per floor, with 5 bunk beds per room. There is a shared, community bathroom per floor. Lastly, there is a large meeting space for meetings or hangouts!
Note that Summer Camp Counselors live in cabins or yurts. They share cabin/yurt space with campers during sessions. There is a barn with a hangout space and kitchen for our summer staff.
Wilderness Guides live at our Eagle Quest campus in screen shelters and spend nights out in a wilderness environment with our adventure trip guests. Wilderness Guides also have a hunting style lodge we named, Mi Casa, for hanging out and cooking meals.
Camp will provide washers and dryers which are located close to the seasonal staff summer housing area.
Please bring your own laundry detergent, dry sheets, and laundry baskets!
Off time is a mixture of structured and unstructured free time, including camp-hosted events, spontaneous adventures, and town days. We aim to give at least 24 hours off per week to summer staff. There may also be certain weeks during the summer that will allow up to 48 hours off.
Please note that off time varies depending on the programming area you are working in. For example, Wilderness Guides are out on trips 7 days at a time and have their off-days after returning back from a trip. Summer Camp and Group Camp staff follow different programming schedules and will often times have different off-days.
