Staff Opportunities

WE’RE LOOKING FOR GREAT PEOPLE WHO LOVE WORKING WITH CHILDREN

KenMont and KenWood Camp is looking for staff members who have a love for working with children, enjoy being part of a team, and believe that mutual respect and positive values can make a difference in a child’s individual development.

As a staff member your responsibilities include guiding children to build good habits, make sound personal judgments and embrace the fundamentals of teamwork. We believe in a work ethic which embraces playing, cheering, learning, caring, and having fun while never losing sight of the ultimate goals of safety and responsible leadership.

We are looking for special individuals who feel comfortable being a child’s role model, provide genuine warmth and sound decision making. Our emphasis is on having our campers build lasting friendships within a family atmosphere of warmth and caring. Our camp environment nurtures development of individual character, self-confidence, and the learning of new skills.

New cabin staff must be completing high school in 2023 or a college student to apply to work at camp.

The local town of Kent, 4 miles from camp, is a classic New England village with craft shops, summer fairs, and fun restaurants. Also nearby you will find the Housatonic River renowned for its whitewater kayaking and waterfalls, beautiful State Parks, and of course outstanding shopping malls as well. On some staff days off we provide staff transportation to the Metro North Train Station so staff can visit New York City.
