Join the Akita Summer Staff

We're excited you're considering working at Camp Akita! We are looking for fun, high energy, hard working, dedicated, responsible applicants who will model a loving spirit to our campers. We want to hire a staff with diverse backgrounds and passions, so whether you have been to Camp Akita all your life or have never heard of it before, we want you to apply.

Summer 2021 taught us that camp can be safe (and fun!) during the pandemic. Our 2021 COVID policies were successful; we saw no COVID outbreaks! While we are hopeful that camp will feel even more “normal” this summer, we will continue to make informed decisions to keep the full camp community safe.

For 2022, we will continue to require all staff to be vaccinated. Campers and staff must be prepared to wear masks on-site. New challenges may arise in 2022, and we will adapt our health and safety policies as necessary. In the meantime, please reach out if you have questions regarding our COVID policies.
