Shady Side Academy offers several opportunities for high school students interested in working in one of our SSA Summer programs. Becoming a member of our close-knit staff is a wonderful opportunity for responsible, vibrant and outgoing teenagers looking to work with children. We provide opportunities for leadership and advancement, while also giving training, feedback and positive reinforcement. Working at camp can be one of the most memorable and instructive jobs you'll ever have.
Leaders-in-training, or LITs, are rising 9th graders who attend our middle school day camp, Camp Ren, while spending several hours each week volunteering with our elementary-aged Day Camp Discovery children and receiving leadership training. Rising 10th graders are eligible for fellowships as assistant counselors or teaching assistants. Rising 11th and 12th graders can become junior counselors and help counselors lead co-ed groups of 10-16 elementary campers.
