How to Apply

Returning Staff, skip down to the very bottom of this page for your application.

First, take a moment to read our 7 Reasons Working at Camp is the Best Decision for your Future!

We are pleased that you are interested in a position(s) at camp. There are plenty of challenges that come with the territory, but the rewards are both endless and eternal.

Note: We generally recruit staff from September through mid-April. We accept applications throughout the year, and it's our desire to help you through the process as quickly as possible. Returning staff can find their application listed below.

There are a few steps to follow in seeking a position:

- Read and understand A Word to Prospective Staff.
- Decide which positions you are most interested in and which may be the best fit by looking over the Available Positions and Job Descriptions. Additionally, please note that we require our staff to work the entire summer (with the exception of the SALT program which operates with 4-week sessions).
- If you are new to camp you can fill out a New Staff Application. (Please use Google Chrome.)
- Rising HS Seniors (current HS juniors) applying to Camp Ridgecrest for Boys should fill out the online SALT Application. (Please note that you will see "Camper Application" after you click on the SALT Application link. It is in fact the SALT Application but some questions may not apply since it is also used for campers. You will need to act as the "Parent/Guardian" while filling out this application. When choosing sessions, select SALT. Please use Google Chrome to apply.)
