Become a kid’s hero at camp

Are you looking to change a life? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

Our programs deeply impact hundreds of participants each year and we need your help to make it all happen. At Bearskin Meadow Camp, DYF hires some of the most enthusiastic and dedicated individuals in the United States and beyond. Camp staff is the backbone of DYF and it is their sense of creativity and professionalism that make our programs a success. We are always seeking individuals who are dedicated, creative, patient, incredibly hard working, and can function in an environment with high demands and long hours. Knowledge of diabetes is an asset but is not required.

Paid positions at Bearskin Meadow Camp include kitchen and maintenance staff, counseling staff, program staff, management and leadership staff.

Summer 2021 | Important Information

Just as is true for campers and families, staffing will look different from previous years. In order to provide safety for our camp community, we will prioritize hiring of staff who have more consistent availability. We encourage ALL staff to apply whether they have limited or full availability, as we will likely need support throughout the entire summer. Below is an estimated timeline for our 2021 summer hiring process:

Level 1 Staff Hiring: Start interviews for staff with full summer availability and specialty or leadership roles at camp.

Do I need to know about diabetes?

You don’t need to be a diabetes expert to apply for a position with us! We will teach you everything you need to know in our pre-camp training and we will always pair you up with an experienced staff member. Some of our best staff have started with no diabetes knowledge-the next one could be you!

Year round volunteer opportunities!

During a typical year, DYF is always recruiting volunteers to lend a hand at our numerous year round events. From our Family Retreats to our one day adventure programs, we are always in need of responsible, fun, and qualified individuals to help make our programs possible. We look forward to continuing our year round opportunities in 2022.
