Summer Employment Opportunities

Hiring only the best at Summer @ BB&N!

We are excited to have so many of our fabulous counselors return to work with us year after year, but we are always eager to welcome new, energetic, and committed staff as well. If you think you have what it takes to work with us, we would love to hear from you.

We work hard but we LOVE what we do. If you feel the same, check out the tabs below to find out what positions we have available and how you can apply.

We will be reviewing our returning staff first for re-hire and then will be reviewing all new applicants. We will reach out to you should we feel as you may be a good fit.

Open Positions

We have NO OPEN positions for Summer 2019.

All of our staff have been hired for Summer 2019!

Starting in January of 2020 you can apply for Summer 2020 for the following positions:  

  • Activities Counselor: Are you pretty awesome at offering an activity to campers every day? Art, woodworking, science, nature, sports, dance, drama, music.. if you excel at any of these, you could be a good fit as an Activity Counselor. 
  • Camp Counselor: Work hard, have fun and be a positive role model for our campers. Must be dedicated, responsible and eager to make every day fun at camp. We hire both Head Counselors (college graduates or similar in age) and Junior Counselors (15yo through college ages).
  • Lifeguards: We look for a multi talented staff to fill the role of our lifeguards as our guards are an integral part of our campers experience. Must be certified and up to date on all trainings as well as be willing to interact with campers both on and off the deck, in and out of the water, and be able to command a room of campers and staff alike. Our lifeguards will support the CRA guards at each pool with our BB&N guards taking the lead on instruction at the Wellesley Pool (WSC).
