Prospective Staff

Interested in working at Camp Alvernia? You should be! It’s a fantastic place to spend a summer. There aren’t many summer jobs where you get to work outside, have fun, and know you’ve made an impact on a child’s life that they’ll remember forever.

We require every employee to work the full 8 weeks of camp.
