Counselor Employment



What are you doing this summer?

The Head-Royce Summer Program employs nearly 125 high school and college-aged counselors from all over the bay area and beyond to become our resident “superheroes” to our campers. The young people in this role are the backbone of our program and by far, our biggest asset. We give the title of “counselor” and not simply "staff" as they do so much to support the social and emotional needs of the campers.

What does it mean to be a counselor?Are you a good fit?

Successful summer superheroes (aka counselors) bring energy, enthusiasm, and a passion for working with kids. Counselors are responsible for helping campers feel safe, included, and seen. Counselors support campers with transitions from place to place, leading team building games, and participating alongside them in a variety of enrichment activities like dance, art, drumming, and cooking. Attendance for all training and camp dates is mandatory for call counselors. Interested? Click through the tabs below for more details and instructions on how to apply.
