People can have a job, a career, or a calling. Camp Augusta is looking for folks who have a calling. Work, play, learn, struggle, and grow in a vibrant community this summer facilitating the growth of children, yourself, and others in the community. Just because you can get a job at any camp, doesn’t mean that you want a job at any camp. Camp Augusta is different than most camps because we operate on a structure of flat hierarchy, consensus and intention with every action. We also have many activities that you are unlikely to find at other camps.

We are a residential summer camp located in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Northern California. We have six sessions during our season, 3 one week and 3 two week, with 90 campers (aged 8-16) each session. Our staff training begins on May 14th and the main season runs through August 10th.

We aim to give children the experience of living without many of the modern conveniences that are present in their everyday lives. They get the chance to experience living in an open-air cabin without electricity. We offer a variety of activities that they may not have tried or even seen before: sword fighting, whips, fire spinning, high and low ropes, archery, and horseback riding to name a few. We also have a wilderness program offering 5-day backcountry trips in backpacking, rafting, climbing, and horsepacking. There is a great deal of information on our website regarding the philosophy of camp and the activities we offer. If you are interested in Camp Augusta, please look those over carefully.

We are hiring for all positions including Village Leaders, Wilderness Trip Leaders and Counseling Staff, detailed below! Staff must be at least 19 years old by May 2019 and available from May 14- August 10.

How to Apply At Camp Augusta, we want to get to know you as a real human, not a set of numbers or boxes to fill out. Our application starts with you pondering on and answering 6 questions, the first of which is "Who are you?". If you are intrigued and delighted by this idea, we want to hear from you!

To apply, fill out our Google Interest Form or check out our website for more information about our program! Or give us a call at (530)-265-3702, we would love to chat with you! Check out stories from this summer on Facebook or Instagram
