Camp Towanda is looking for experienced, charismatic and enthusiastic swimmers to work at our beautiful waterfront as lifeguards, water safety instructors, swim instructors and/or boating instructors. Having a Lifeguard/WSI certification is not a requirement prior to applying, although certainly is a plus! We offer onsite training and certification at no cost! Need to recertify or already certified? No problem!
Our facility includes a 30 acre natural spring fed lake and Olympic solar heated pool. Check out our virtual tour! In addition to teaching instructional swim to campers of ages 7-17 with varying abilities, our lifeguards supervise campers in the pool, on recreational floats, slides, water obstacle courses, aqua volleyball and Tarzan Swing. We offer fishing, waterskiing, boating, water polo and various other water activities as well!
Waterfront Staff are considered Activity Specialists and will help teach groups of 20-40 campers for instruction and help supervise General Swim when the majority of the camp is down at the Waterfront. When you are scheduled to be at the waterfront, you will be with your assigned camper group on campus. As a counselor you will be ensuring safety, team-building, growth and development in all activities and life at camp. You will be under the guidance of your Group Leader and assist in supervision of the campers’ daily schedule. You can read more about camp life in our company profile page.

CAMP AND COVID
In May of 2020 we made the tough decision to close our business for the season. You can view our closing message here. Looking ahead to 2021, we are confident that we will be prepared and ready for the challenges. We are working closely with our Medical Team to safely make this summer the best one yet! Now more than ever, the importance of Camp is evident; the fresh air, connecting with nature, impacting our youth and fostering a healthy, nurturing environment for the next generation to grow.
The next step is to fill out our online application. We will then connect to set up a video interview over Skype, Facetime or Zoom. Our internships are integrated with our hired camp counselor positions; there is one application. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. 570-253-3266 or firstname.lastname@example.org
