Thank you for considering Hermann Sons Life Camp as your potential summer home. Please complete this application to apply for a position on our seasonal summer camp team. As an ACA accredited summer camp program, all seasonal staff will be thoroughly screened to include:

• A criminal background check for all staff 18 years of age and older.

• At least three (3) reference checks (and verification) of previous work (including volunteer) history.

• A personal interview by the executive director (or designated representative).

• A check of the National Sex Offender Public website of all fifty (50) states.

Our Camp is a traditional sleep-away camp for members aged 9 to 14. We offer a variety of positions for staff members aged 16+ in food service, maintenance and housekeeping along with positions for 17+ year-olds in programs and 21+ in administration.

While our preference is for staff members to work the entire summer, we do have some positions for staff to work as few as three weeks. Hermann Sons Life Camp also works with the Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas to provide a half-week session for children who've lost a significant person/loved one in their life.

We will begin staff trainings and certifications as early as the spring of 2022. We offer our staff the opportunity to become Challenge Course certified as well as certified lifeguards and CPR/FA certified through the American Red Cross free of charge. We will also train our staff in archery and riflery.

Camp sessions run from 6/12/22 – 7/31/22. We have two summer camp sites separated by only one mile: Riverside Camp for girls and Hilltop Camp for boys. Our campers attend camp for one week.
