Join our Team

Would you like to be one of us? Our summer camp staff team is primarily comprised of three types of leaders:

Teachers/professionals - Many of our activity specialists are individuals who work in their craft year-round as teachers or as professionals in their respective industry. We are always looking for more talented individuals with the credentials and the background who can contribute to the strength of our program.

Parents - The MLDC offers a parent-counselor program that allows parents who have daytime availability to work with us while their children attend camp for a reduced fee or at no cost whatsoever. Like all staff, they are screened via CORI/SORI checks, references, etc. We have found that parents are great role models for our younger staff and help to keep the culture of child care at a superior level. More info on this program can be found by clicking here.

College students - All primary staff are a minimum of 18 years of age and they are chosen for their enthusiasm, leadership skills and their dedication to providing the highest quality camp experience to our campers and our program. In speaking to our college students, you will find that the majority are majoring in some aspect of childhood education and welfare or they have already have a background in working with children.

We operate ten weeks every summer, which includes a week of staff training and eight one week sessions. General staff training begins during the third week of June. Our day camp is operational Monday through Friday from the fourth week of June through the third week of August.
