Get Outside This Summer and Play for Pay!


Get outside this summer and play for pay! Our summer programs invite children to play, create, imagine and socialize outdoors. Children need outdoor activities, friends and fun more than ever and we want you to help make it happen. The Township Supervisors have generously increased the hourly starting rate for summer counselors (aged 18+) to $15 per hour. Being a summer counselor is a rewarding role providing a healthy, memorable and fun summer for many children. Where can a summer job working with kids lead you? Many of our staff have enjoyed the opportunity as a career springboard to become teachers, counselors, nurses, police officers and more. Where can it lead you? Will you step up to the challenge?

Reasons past and current staff enjoyed being a summer counselor:

  • Lead and plan fun activities and events for children
  • Work outdoors playing sports, games, making crafts and go on field trips
  • Being looked up to as a leader and friend by the children and coworkers
  • Making friends, memories and a paycheck
  • Competitive starting pay ($15 hour) and a great job reference
