Why should I DreamBIG this summer?

If you are looking for a quiet, “laid back” summer then STOP! DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!  However, if you are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children and want to work in an environment where your peers are just as passionate as you are, then Dream BIG Day Camp may be the place for you this summer.

If you are looking to work in an environment that is challenging, demanding, and intense, but some of the most fun and most rewarding experiences you will ever have, then check out Dream BIG Day Camp. We are looking for AMAZING people who are eager to give kids a euphoric experience!

Being a counselor at Dream BIG is an empowering job. You live, work, eat, sleep, teach, play, and have fun with kids and your co-workers.  It is so true that the more you put into any experience with children, the more you are going to get out of it. This is the mantra at Dream BIG.

The summer season runs on two campuses for 7 and 10 weeks total from approximately May 28 – August 2 which includes our staff orientation. Whether you love sports, theater, arts or science, we think that’s great. Whether you are highly skilled in an activity, or just learning, we celebrate every camper and every staff member for their own unique gifts that they bring to our community. Counselors have an opportunity to earn college credits working with us.

Each staff person completes an application and goes through an extensive interview. In addition, we ask that you submit 3 professional  references in order to be considered for a position at camp. These references must be people who have supervised your work. Please note that peers, friends and relatives do not qualify as professional references.

All staff members participate in an extensive orientation. Staff orientation is a wonderful opportunity for staff to “play camp,” understand our philosophy and program, get to know each other, and feel comfortable at camp before the campers arrive.
