Employment at Camp Timbers

West Branch, Michigan

We believe a summer camp experience can make an positive, long-lasting impact on a child.  We strive to help all campers experience new adventures, connect with new friends, and grow in mind, body, and spirit.  Our campers leave with greater self-confidence, improved social skills, and a “home away from home” where they are empowered to be the best versions of themselves possible.

None of this is possible without a remarkable staff team.

At YMCA Camp Timbers, our staff our role models.  They’re professional, energetic, and selfless agents of change.  At the end of their summers, they’ll have positively impacted the lives of 700+ campers.

We’re currently seeking like-minded, impact-oriented role models to join our 2018 summer staff team.  Are you ready to have the best summer ever?  Who do you know that should join us?
