Day Camp Counselor


Hoover Adventure Center is a Girl Scout day camp located in Tully, NY. We run 5 weeks of day camp each summer for girls K-8th grade. At Camp Hoover we  provide a variety of fun, engaging outdoor activities such as shooting sports, STEM, nature, handicraft, swimming, and boating. We support girls as they strive to build courage, confidence, and character. 

What do we look for in our staff?
We’re looking for young people who have a passion for the outdoors and working with children! We want staff who are interested in making meaningful connections with both their co-workers and girls who attend camp. All staff should believe in the Girl Scout mission of “building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place”, as this is at the core of everything we do!

The Counselor is responsible for acting as the primary caregiver for their assigned unit campers, including ensuring a safe and healthy environment is maintained, supervising camper behavior, identifying and managing hazards, and promoting the tenets of the Girl Scout Law. The counselor is also responsible for assisting in teaching different activities throughout camp, such as swimming, boating, shooting sports, STEM, nature, and handicraft.

A day at Hoover starts with drop off at 9 a.m and pick up is at 5 p.m., with a brief staff meeting afterwards. Camp runs Monday-Friday and staff go home at night.  A bus from Destiny USA may be available for any staff who need transportation.

Employment runs from July 6th- August 15th 

We strive to provide a safe work environment for our employees and follow the latest CDC and NYS recommendations for COVID safety.
