At the South Mountain YMCA Camps we are constantly working to identify and recruit program and leadership talent. More than skills, we want people on our team that love working with children, families, and adults – we want staff that love seeing people grow.
If you believe you have the character, the skills, and the desire to develop and serve the visitors to our camp community, you may be the person we have been looking for. We look forward to meeting you soon.
