Pilgrim Lodge Summer Staff

The Pilgrim Lodge staff plays a vital role in supporting the program and ministry of camp. There are longer-term positions available and shorter, summer roles for residential staff.

Staff applications are now open for 2023!

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but interviews will begin on January 26, 2023. Please submit your application by January 24, 2023 if you’d like to be considered in the first round of interviews.

Please check out the job descriptions before applying. The season will run from June 12, 2023 (including staff training) to early August, 2023.

Some things to consider:

  • If you love working with children and can be silly and engaging, while keeping safety as your number one priority, camp is the perfect place for you!
  • A role on the summer staff if a great way to give back to Pilgrim Lodge or contribute to the transformational experience that camp can offer
  • You will be living and working closely with other staff members in an intentional community that seeks to uphold the mission and values of Pilgrim Lodge with a Code of Conduct for all staff members
  • You must be at least 18 years of age (or will be by June 2023)
  • You will be doing meaningful, but hard work, fulfilling a variety of responsibilities from supporting campers to helping camp operate. This can make for some long, but rewarding days.

      Campers often say that PL is great because it is a place where you can truly be yourself. Imagine getting to experience that feeling of authenticity all summer! The four summers I spent on PL staff allowed me to challenge myself in new ways, develop leadership and collaborative skills that I now use everyday, and build lifelong relationships with people from all walks of life. For me, PL was more than just a summer job – it was one of the most formative experiences of my life.” – Adam

      My summers on camp staff have made me who I am today. The bonds I made with fellow staffers, the skills I learned through all those “other duties as assigned”, and the quiet moments immersed in nature are things I take with me everywhere I go.” – Ruth
