We’re looking for folks who love working with children, who value empathy, and who thrive being outdoors. 

Our camp guarantee: we return kids dirty, tired, and happy.

Chances are, you’ll end each day that way too. Come spend the summer building forts in the woods, wading creeks, singing songs, and looking for critters at our North Carolina day camps.  Your days might be long, but they’ll be filled with adventure and laughter. If you’d like to get an idea of what a camp day can look like, check out our photo galleries! If you’d like to get a little more information on the specific ins and outs of our program, our Parent Handbook is a great place to start.

Our mission is to create kind, curious, and confident kids. If you’d like that to be your mission too, please click the links to the right to find out more about our available positions in Durham, Orange, and Wake counties.
