Be a part of an inclusive community

Eagle’s Nest is an inclusive community that seeks a diversity of staff members to care for, teach and nurture our campers. Our summer camp counseling staff is made up of talented people from a variety of backgrounds, ages, and experiences. Though we have many different skills and experiences, we share a common goal of making a positive impact on the lives of children. 


“I feel that I learned more this summer than I have in three years of school. Eagle’s Nest helped me through a lot of challenges that forced me to think critically and I am so thankful for that. This summer I felt like a real professional within the industry. Your training and confidence in my ability helped me feel that way. I also felt very valued at camp, and I felt like my opinions were heard. I truly appreciate that camp is a positive and loving environment.”
