Job Description

Camp Manito-wish YMCA is located in Northern Wisconsin in the quaint tourism community of Boulder Junction. We have been in operation since 1919 and offer multiple programs including Summer Camp, Outpost Wilderness Tripping, Family Camp and Leadership Programming. Our property is located on 300 wooded acres on the shores of Boulder Lake and we are surrounded by the 225,000-acre Northern-Highland American Legion State Forest and nearly 200 lakes and rivers, which means there are an abundance of opportunities available for our campers exploration. Our staff is a wonderful group dedicated to enriching character and leadership skills, and we are focused on promoting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

DATES: Full summer would be June 1-August 26. These dates are flexible as we also need additional help on Opening Days and Closing Days, as well as other busier and gap dates throughout the season. We are interested in learning your availability.

SALARY: Current starting salary is $180/day with an additional $75 for an overnight shift. Housing is provided for RNs. At least one RN must be on site 24 hours a day.

CAMPER DISCOUNTS: We are able to offer a minimum of 40% discount off Summer Camp registration fees to nurses who work a minimum of 14 days. We still have spots available for both Boys and Girls Camp.
