How to Apply for a Counseling Position:

Applications are accepted between January 1st and April 15th each year.  Due to the overwhelming response for positions, no applications will be accepted after April 15th, this includes returning counselors.  Counselor interviews will be scheduled in small groups.  You will be notified before the week of interviews for your interview time slot.

Teens, if you are interested in working at Sequoia Day Camp this summer, please apply now! 

Being a camp counselor is one of the most demanding yet rewarding jobs you could choose for the summer.  You are influencing lives!  There is a great excitement in this with lots of responsibility.  You are a role model, leader, friend and caregiver.  The rewards you get from your involvement with the campers are priceless, whether you realize it immediately or after the summer has passed.  The impact you make on the lives of campers and fellow counselors is lifelong.  There are memories to make and friends to meet!

Do you enjoy working with kids?  Would you like to make a positive difference in their lives?  We need you if you are a high energy person who is not afraid to speak up!  Can you lead a small group of kids?  We are looking for teens with character traits who are honest and caring with good judgement.  Can you be safe, fun, goofy, and nurturing with a solid work ethic?  A day at camp in the summer can be challenging when it is hot.  You will need patience, energy, and a smile!

To apply: Please e-mail Lynn Hawblitzel, day camp director, information about yourself.  In your e-mail, include the following: Name, home phone number, your cell phone number, your mother's/father's cell phone number, your age, and the sessions you are available to work. Tell us about your hobbies, interests, experience with kids and why you would like to be a counselor. Counselor interviews are held mid-April each year.  We will respond to you with an interview time the week before interviews in April. You do not need letters of reference.  Please send your cover email to Lynn at

*Returning counselors:  If you wait too long to request a spot for the summer, there may not be any left for the specific session you are available to work.  Please don't wait until the last minute to let Lynn Hawblitzel, Day Camp Director, know you want to return.

Please complete the attached application and return with your email.

As well as emailing your application, please, send a separate email to Lynn Hawblitzel, day camp director, with the following information:

If you are a returning counselor, you must reapply before April 15th to let us know you would like to return. Returning counselors, who received a positive evaluation at the end of last year, will be placed first. This helps with the consistency of the camp.

We LOVE our volunteers and we need them. If you are 12 years old and would like to spend some time with us at day camp, please e-mail Lynn Hawblitzel, day camp director, Let us know about yourself, your hobbies, interests and your experience with kids. As a counselor in training (c.i.t.) you will be placed with a group for the day. Sometimes that stays the same throughout the session, sometimes, we need to move c.i.t.’s around depending on our needs. You also do not need to commit to a complete session, part of one is fine, and day to day is fine.

Your time will be spent helping the younger campers. That might mean you help them find a lost racket, a towel or shoes. You may need to take a child to the restroom, to swim practice, or help them pack up for the day. Whatever it is, it is helpful to the campers and to all of us. Just remember!! Now YOU are the counselor, not the camper. Your job is to help them have a great time and hopefully you will have a great time too. It will get your foot in the door for when you are old enough to apply for a paid position and see if you like it! Volunteers are not guaranteed a paid position when old enough; it does help us get to know you better though. Think about it!
