Applications for Summer 2020 will open on Dec 1st for new staff members. Any applications received before this time will not be looked at until Dec 1.
Our staff makes the biggest impact on the campers, and we are looking for the best to work at CCO. Making a difference in the life of a young person, learning skills that will help you throughout future jobs, and gaining lifelong friends in the progress is a wonderful way to spend your summer!
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have previous experience working with children.
International applicantswill need to work with an agency prior to applying to CCO unless you hold duel citizenship and the USA is one of those two countries. This does not guarantee a position on staff. We do not handle work sponsorship through the camp office.
Why work at Camp Chief Ouray?
This is what our staff had to say:
“I don’t get homesick, I get campsick. I love camp and all the people here.” Matt, 1st year counselor
“My cabin cared for each other with all the love they had and that’s why this was my best week of camp ever.” Cameron, 3rd year counselor
“Though one week at camp may seem fast, it isn’t for a child and the experience they can gain in that one week can shape them forever. It is always something they will remember.” Jacob, 6th year counselor
“Camp Magic is about laughter, pure joy, fresh air, shooting stars, deep forests, friends, love, hidden places and the smell of pine. Above all, camp is about finding who you really are. If you do it right, it never leaves you.” Aku, Former Counselor and Current Camper Dad
