Culture is important - Camp Zeke - Sleepaway Summer Camp

Camp Zeke’s culture

Camp Zeke’s culture is a tremendous sense of pride for our staff, campers, and parents; and our staff are the torchbearers of that culture. Our entire team is driven by a deep sense of purpose and commitment to a shared vision for our community. Staff members embrace Camp Zeke’s mission of health and fitness, live our core values all summer, and experience tremendous personal growth while instilling Camp Zeke’s values in our campers.

Read about Camp Zeke’s Mission and Values

This is no ordinary job, and it’s certainly not an internship in a sanitized office. You will have mission-driven work, amazing colleagues who become lifelong friends, a management team that genuinely cares about your personal development, and the power to build and shape the entire camp community. By the end of each day, you will be tired in the most satisfying possible way.

We organize regular special events for staff on their time off, including dance parties, board game nights, swimming adventures across the lake, special breakfasts on your day off, hikes on our trails, ice cream trips, fitness classes, and happy hours with wine and beer for our 21+ staff.

Camp is a unique environment where our biggest goal is for everyone to be happy – the staff, the campers, and the parents. We’re convinced that a happy staff is the foundation of it all! If the staff are happy, the kids are happy, and if the kids are happy, the parents are happy.

Every summer we survey our staff to hear more about their experience at camp. Here are some of the things they told us after the summer of 2018:


said they learned skills that will translate to work outside of camp and look strong on their resume.


said they would recommend working at camp to a friend.


said they were highly satisfied with the overall experience.


said they enjoyed the camp’s social environment.


said that camp's senior management was high quality, professional, approachable, and provided staff with the opportunity to grow personally and professionally.
