A Glen Arden counselor is not only a role model — she is a big sister, mentor, and good friend to the young girls for whom she is responsible. Your influence will inspire campers and make a lasting impression in their lives.

You will be required to operate with a high moral compass and exhibit the best character traits. We carefully select our staff and only hire those with the true intent of making a difference in our campers’ lives.

Why Work Here?

A summer at Glen Arden is one that you will cherish forever. Summers bookended by busy college schedules can offer many opportunities, but none are like spending the summer at camp. It is a time in your life like no other: a time when you can unplug and focus on making a positive difference in someone’s life; and a time for sharing your talents with others. It is a time to be silly and laugh and connect. It is a time to live in an uplifting community that celebrates each person for her accomplishments, both big and small. It is a time to make friendships that last a lifetime. It is a time to grow and learn about yourself while helping others do the same. It is time that only happens during a few years between leaving home for college and starting your career. There is no time better than this summer.
