Work for Camp Glen Brook
If you are looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of countless young people, build a strong community, and be part of creating a second home to generations of campers, then look no further!
At Camp Glen Brook, we believe that staff deserves to be nurtured and cared for. In order to be a role model and a strong educator to others, you must also continue to be challenged, embraced, and mentored by others. This is a place where young people learn to connect to the natural world and each other while cultivating a sense of wonder and excitement about stewardship and service to the world around them.
We can’t do it without you!

Our biodynamic farm is the lifeline of the camp and the kitchen is its heart. In the summer months, we never stop beating – making 3 meals and two snacks a day from scratch. We are a small but motivated team churning out homemade granola, scratch bread, breaking down our chickens raised on our pastures, and churning out pizza after pizza from our cob oven.
We are innovators and artists. We accept and we are grateful for what we can do in this moment, but we know that we can always improve.
We are on time, playful, and hardworking, so that at the end of the day we will be totally free for a swim in the lake, a scamper in the woods, or a game of hardcore meadow soccer. Not sure what meadow soccer is? Oh, it’s a multi-age free-for-all like you’ve never seen before. No cleats required.
Please contact our Culinary Director, Robyn Morin at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Glen Brook’s CIT program is an intensive leadership-training program for students who have completed 10th or 11th grade and are 16 or 17 years old.

6 to 9-Month Positions
Spring through fall positions.
The Land Steward/Outdoor Educator position runs from spring through the end of fall. This position works closely with our School Programs Director to deliver our various school programming throughout the spring and fall seasons.
Winter camp employs numerous counselors and some kitchen support staff. Counselors must have a passion for the outdoors and enjoy introducing campers to activities such as sledding, Nordic skiing, ice-skating, and snowshoeing, and snow fort building. Indoor activities like arts and crafts, cooking, and board games round out the day.
All counselor positions are residential, one-week positions that coincide with school vacations in mid-February. Positions require applicants to be 18 years old or older.
