Being part of the Brooks School Summer Programs team is far more than a summer job… it’s an unforgettable experience. Here at Brooks, you’ll have an opportunity to work in a place where you will forge friendships and gain skills that will last a lifetime.
Sending a child to camp takes an enormous amount of trust on the part of parents. At Brooks, we take that responsibility seriously and maintain an environment that both encourage safety and health. Through our Summer Begins at Brooks initiative, we seek to introduce campers to new activities, providing them with opportunities for emotional and physical growth. Our ultimate goal is to provide an enjoyable, exciting summer experience that allows campers to develop self-confidence, social achievement, and leadership skills.
Each season, we develop the Summer Programs team from alumni, students, and faculty from regional schools and colleges. We look for people with personality, character, maturity, professional training, experience, and, most importantly, a sincere desire to work with children.
As a staff member, you will enjoy working in a community environment. Our salaries are competitive and vary according to age, education, skill, and experience.
A multi-day staff orientation session, before the arrival of campers, lets you get to know your colleagues while you plan and prepare for opening day. We revisit our goals for the summer and use a variety of mediums to help you prepare for a successful season.
All-camp staff meetings are held every other Monday. These meetings give us all a chance to evaluate camp as a whole, announce items of interest, and discuss areas of improvement.
Group meetings, led by group coordinators, are scheduled weekly. These meetings allow you to discuss, plan, and support the needs of your individual campers.
The Brooks School Summer Programs office embraces an open-door policy. You are always welcome to contact the director, supervisors, and coordinators on an informal basis, with any of your concerns.
Brooks School strives to be an anti-racist school, understanding that this work is continuous and is central to our role as an educational institution. Racism and other forms of systemic oppression are deeply rooted in all institutional and societal structures: We condemn institutional racism and white supremacy in all forms, including those that exist at Brooks. As a community that values each member’s sense of belonging, our goal is to foster an inclusive environment in which everyone can live, work and learn free from prejudice, discrimination and marginalization. While we recognize that racism occurs both intentionally and unintentionally and is often a result of unconscious bias, we also know that its presence hinders our ability to provide the most meaningful educational experience our students will have in their lives. Therefore, at Brooks School we are united in the fight to identify, acknowledge and dismantle systems of oppression and inequality. In order to do this work effectively, we will draw on our foundation: strong community, core values, and commitment to care, support and growth of every member of the community.
Brooks School does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, color, sexual orientation, disability, or religion in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, employment policies, financial aid and loan programs, athletic programs, and other school-administered programs and activities.
