Camp Augusta – Our Intention

This site was created by a group of campy people from the woods of Northern California. We run a small operation called Camp Augusta, a non-profit that runs summer camp and family camps.

We know that dedicating your summer to working at a camp requires a lot of commitment and planning. There are thousands of camps across the U.S., each with their own perks and unique personalities, so it should come as no surprise that narrowing down your search can be tough. 

We’re not here to tell you which camp is the perfect one for you, but we do have a LOT of knowledge and information that we are more than happy to share. Our goal is to share our wealth of knowledge and experience so that you are prepared to find, and apply for, the summer camp job of your dreams. There’s nothing fishy here either, such as hidden sign-up fees or anything weird. The intention with this web site isn’t to apply here, It’s simply to help potential camp staff all over understand the wide world of counseling, the intricate details, and to help get you to the right summer camp!

As a crew that comes from a camp of our own, we think it’s important to share that we don’t want you to apply to work at our camp unless it is a great fit for you. There is no application on this site, as our goal here is to be of service, inform, and guide. We know the importance of finding the right camp fit, and we recognize that ours might not be the one.  

If you do decide to learn more about Camp Augusta, and decide it could be a great fit for you, then we gladly invite you to apply to work with us!

For transparency, we’re not interested in making money. If we were, then we wouldn’t be a non-profit. Instead, we’re excited about getting potential camp hires to a space that they will best fit and where the camp will best serve them. Only you can ascertain fit for a camp!

Our greatest hope is that you can utilize these resources to find a camp that fits your needs. If you have thoughts on how we can be of better service in your search for a camp, let us know, and we’ll likely add your question/information to this site.

A Little More About Camp Augusta 

Camp Augusta is a non-profit camp located in the foothills of Northern California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. Every summer, Augusta’s staff work hard to realize the camp’s vision, which is to reclaim and foster the beauty, wonder, awe, potential, and innocence of childhood. 

In a small, tight-knit community housed in natural splendor, campers develop self-confidence, independence, social skills, creativity, environmental awareness, friendships, and healthy living skills. Campers also learn what most modern children have forgotten — how to simply play and be a kid, without social pressures or technology.

Camp Augusta’s staff is like no other. With a staff selection process that puts most job applications to shame and one of the longest staff trainings in the country, our system is a national model used by camps from coast to coast.
