What is the work environment like?

We have a work hard, play hard mentality at NEOC. We intentionally design the summer to be as fun for our team as for our campers! With a diverse team of counselors, specialist roles, and additional team needs, there is sure to be a role that is interesting and fun. Additionally:

  • Work alongside staff from around the world
  • Host an international team member to take out for dinner or an evening activity
  • Join in weekly, evening events on our Elm Bank campus or on the campus of our dorms
  • Sign-up for group weeknight or weekend events (Six Flags is a popular day trip each summer)

What are the employment dates and work hours?

  • Camp runs June 12th through September 2nd
  • A minimum of seven weeks of work is required (this includes one week of training)
  • Work Monday through Friday
  • Exact hours depend on position, most staff hours are from 8:00am - 4:30pm.

Is working at NEOC equal to an internship?

The skills developed and honed at NEOC — whether as a counselor, Camper Care Specialist, or any of our other positions — can result in a summer experience that is easily comparable to an internship opportunity.

  • Gain essential career skills: communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and contribution
  • Practice leadership in a real-life context
  • Receive professional development, training, and certifications
  • Earn college credit or internship experience (if applicable to your institution)

Do you offer housing?

We offers accommodations in close proximity to our camp location for team members, with shuttle service to and from camp each day. While primarily housing international staff, accommodations may be available to other staff members needing summer housing if space is available. For those living in our housing, room and board are part of the compensation package.
