Staff Positions

Typically, college level staff members at Romaca have “dual” responsibilities. Your day is reasonably divided between teaching in an activity area and carrying out the responsibilities of bunk counselor. In your capacity as an activity specialist and bunk counselor, you will be teaching alongside other Romacan staffers.

Limited availability exists for select candidates who wish to live with, and chaperone our youngest age group of campers (1st & 2nd grades completed).

Previous experience with young children is required for this position.

Department Head & Group Head (Advisory Staff)

Often, positions in our Advisory Staff group are promoted from within our existing population of camp staff. However, we do hire from outside of this internal pool. At all times, we seek highly qualified, mature adults, with requisite experience to lead specific major program areas or divisional age groups. Candidates who are applying for positions in either of these categories should possess strong skills of leadership, instructional ability and have previous supervisory experience.

  • You must be highly motivated, possess excellent communication skills, and be capable of autonomous organization.
  • For Department Heads, you will be responsible for developing lesson plans, scheduling and skill training for a group of 10-20 adults, in addition to rotating groups of campers.
  • Group Heads actively supervise, coordinate and participate all aspects of camp-life within their age division. Groups include 30-36 campers and 10-14 staff. Group Heads have high levels of contact with camper parents.
  • Advisory Staff generally do not live in bunks with children, however, they participate fully in all camp activities and special events.
