If you are interested in our camp positions, we encourage you to apply. Before you begin please read all the information presented carefully. Only then can you understand what Wayfarer is all about and the commitment it takes to be on staff with us.

“Seeing the camp from the perspective of a camper, a CIT, and now as a counselor has given me the opportunity to see how truly amazing Wayfarer is…;I could write for pages upon pages about how much Wayfarer means to me, but I think I will just sum it up by saying that I will always consider Wayfarer a second home and you both as “2nd” parents. Thanks so much for the opportunity to work at camp this summer.”

Summer Job Asheville

Before applying for a camp job, ask yourself if you are ready, willing and able to…

  • Be a selfless team member living within a camp community?
  • Conduct myself in a positive manner?
  • Be timely?
  • Be consistent in my attitudes and actions?
  • Be counted on?
  • Follow workplace policies and regulations in working with children?
  • Complete a thorough national background check as well as take a drug test?

If you have answered ‘no’ to any of these questions, you may want a different summer experience. If you answered a resounding ‘yes’ to the questions, you are on your way to the most rewarding way possible to spend a summer.

We can’t wait to meet you!
