Why work at Maplewood?

At Maplewood Country Day Camp we know the staff is what makes the Maplewood difference for our campers, but we also understand it's equally important to make a difference in the lives of those whom we employ.  

This is more than a summer job, it is an amazing 8-week experience that will allow you to learn and grow.  We would like to invite you to come and join our camp family.  

When it comes to family, there is nothing we take more seriously.  Our staff, many of whom were former campers, are the ingredient that makes Maplewood so special.  Some of our Staff members have been with us for 10, 15 even 25 years!!

This is an invitation to join our family, and when it comes to family, there is nothing we take more seriously.

You, above all else, are our most important asset.  

Our goal throughout the summer is to make sure that you have a positive and meaningful experience...and we will do everything in our power to make it so.  

So why work here? Why join our family? Here are FOUR great reasons:

Friendship

The people we hire have a diverse range of personalities.  They are fun-loving, energetic and compassionate. When your mission is to create an environment predicated on family, it is no surprise that our staff develops strong relationships!  Friendship happens here. Our staff truly enjoy spending time together.  They love coming back here year after year because of the strong sense of family.

  • We strive to continually evolve and improve our programs.  
  • We value new ideas and take every suggestion presented very seriously.
  • We know our staff is experienced (we hire them) and we look for their input and feedback.
  • We are devoted to our children, to their growth.
  • We care about their experiences.

Fun

This is an experience unlike any other. No matter how old you are, we want summer camp to be fun for all involved, and we take great pride in making it so. While the activities are geared towards children, our adults still find joy in doing things they have never done before. We strive to create a culture focused on spirit and positive energy. So come join us for a summer you will never forget.

If you are someone who is passionate about working with children, then Maplewood is the place for you.

Career & Leadership Development

Regardless of where you are in life, teacher or student, Maplewood is focused on your development.

If you are a teacher, summer camp is an opportunity to gain confidence in front of a diverse group of children in a completely different setting. It is an opportunity to manage a group of young adults, learn how to evaluate them, and create a system of accountability and high expectations. No matter where you are in your career, our focus is on helping you become better at what you are doing or what you plan to do in the future.

If you are a student, Maplewood will build self-confidence, teach responsibility, and allow you the freedom to explore your interests.  Regardless of what career you choose to pursue, Maplewood provides you with the opportunity to learn how to communicate and work with different people and personalities. By summer's end, we will help guide you and evaluate your strengths and weaknesses.  

If you don't believe us...watch for yourself!
