We are North Jersey’s premier summer day camp looking for fun, energetic, caring and professional staff who love working with children. Positions include counselors, lifeguards and specialists. Applicants must be available weekdays from 8:30am – 4:00pm for all 8 weeks (38 days) of camp, Monday June 28th through Thursday August 19th. (Camp is closed Monday July 5th.) Orientation and training sessions are mandatory and provided to ALL staff prior to the beginning of the camp season.
SLDC is a magnificent 30 acre campus with a 40,000 square foot pool complex, a 5 acre lake for boating, fishing and a zip line, manicured sports fields, and many specialty areas, offering an incredible summer experience for our staff and our many campers! Specialty positions include fitness, dance, yoga, archery, adventure challenge, nature, cooking for kids, technology, arts, music/drama, martial arts, indoor/outdoor group and individual sports, nurses, gymnastics, and more.
Applicants for our specialty positions should be at least 18 years of age and skilled and certified (if applicable) in the applied position. Our adventure challenge course areas include 5 zip lines, climbing walls, continuous belay systems, high and low ropes courses and more. A certification course is required and is offered at our expense at the camp in the late spring.
Counselors must be at least a senior in high school by the beginning of the camp season. Counselors typically work as a team with two other counselors and one group of children, and are responsible for the physical, emotional and social well-being of their campers each day! Our counselors and campers enjoy all of the activities together!
Applicants for lifeguard positions must be certified and at least 16 years of age. If the applicant is NOT certified yet, an American Red Cross lifeguard certification course is offered on site in June for a fee. SLDC does have a reimbursement plan for the cost of the certification course. They not only guard our pool complex but are trained to teach campers to swim according to the American Red Cross program or work at our lake area and oversee our boating activities.
