About

St. Francis Camp on the Lake takes pride in recruiting the highest quality of staff and volunteers. In order to provide the best camper care and quality programs, St. Francis Camp on the Lake searches out individuals with a unique blend of compassion, selflessness, flexibility, creativity and the desire to live and play together in dignity, respect and love. There are many opportunities available to work at St. Francis Camp on the Lake including Medical Staff, Counselors, Lifeguards, Program Staff, Cooks, and Culinary Aides. Although many of our staff are students in the education and human service fields, experience working with individuals with developmental disabilities is not required.

Our counseling staff is at the heart of St. Francis Camp on the Lake's summer camp programs. Although it is a lot of hard work to provide an enjoyable and memorable experience for the campers, staff are rewarded with life-long friendships, fond memories, and a one-of-a-kind summer experience. In order to ensure the team at St. Francis Camp on the Lake is providing the best programming, camper care, and camp experience, our staffand volunteers participate in a 30 hour pre-camp training session. Specialized training is provided in: CPR, First-Aid, waterfront and boating safety, camper care, communication skills with non-verbal campers, medical needs, adapting activities for various disabilities, and much, much more!
