Working at RMDC
Rocky Mountain Day Camp doesn’t just hire counselors, we hire role models. Everyone on our staff loves working with children and they are also specialists in the activities they teach. It is the goal of the Rocky Mountain Day Camp team to make a positive impact on every camper, every day, every summer.
“My kids love you and look up to each of you more than you know, and I am thrilled they have such fantastic role models.”
– Julia, Camp Mom

When and where is RMDC orientation?
In order to build the cohesive community that we are known for, we first begin with our staff. All staff are required to attend a four day orientation prior to opening day of camp. This training begins the Thursday before the start of camp and is held locally.
Due to a prior plan, I cannot make one of the days of orientation, is that okay?
We do ask that you do everything in your power to attend our staff orientation. If this is not possible, we do have alternate options to get you the information you will need in order to be successful.
Am I paid for the orientation?
How and when do I get paid?
Staff are paid via direct deposit four times throughout the summer.
How many hours should I expect to work?
Staff hours are from 8:15am – 3:45pm, Monday – Friday.
Camp hours are from 9:00am – 3:15pm, Monday – Friday.
Do I get time off during the summer?
We do our best to honor requests for time off. In the perfect camp world we would love for you to spend all summer with us. This helps build the bond between camper, staff and family. We understand you may have other plans. We ask that you let us know as soon as possible when this happens. We will do our best to accommodate all requests for time off, but can’t guarantee it.
What is the camp alcohol/drug policy? How is it enforced?
RMDC has a zero tolerance policy for being under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs while at work. We operate on school grounds where even legal substances are not allowed. We kindly ask that you refrain from bringing anything questionable to work with you as this may be cause for termination.
I am only available for part of the summer. Should I still apply?
