YMCA Camp Kresge Employment Opportunities

Outdoor Education Instructor/Intern

“It’s very rewarding to get kids outside and experiencing nature directly, particularly for kids who would otherwise not have access to a site like Camp Kresge. Each day of work is different with the variety of classes taught and the range of grades and schools that visit. What remains the same, however, is the atmosphere of positivity among the staff when working together and with the groups that come out.”
– Timothy Wychock 2nd year staff member.
