The Adventure Starts Here

Thanks for your interest in working for The Fresh Air Fund this summer! Here’s how our application process works.

1. Fill out an application.
Please click on the link below to fill out the online application. During the application process, you will have the chance to indicate which position(s) you are interested in applying for as well as your top two camp preferences. To learn more about our five different camps, click here. Staff are encouraged to apply to the camp(s) of their choice, regardless of gender.

While we do not have an application deadline, we encourage interested applicants to apply as early as possible since we hire staff on a rolling basis until all positions are filled.

2. Your application will be reviewed by one of our Camp Directors.
Once we receive your application, our directors will review it to determine if we wish to move forward with an interview. If you are selected for an interview, we will contact you to schedule a time to speak with one of our Camp Directors. We conduct interviews over the phone, Skype or in-person (for local applicants).

3. We will collect three references for you. 
During the application process, you will be asked to provide contact information for three references. The people providing references should know you in an academic or professional setting, such as teachers, mentors and current/former employers. We will send your references an online form to complete later on in the application process.
