Summer Employment 

Spend your summer working in the mountains of the beautiful Pike National Forest at the Colorado Lions Camp, while making a difference in the lives of those with special needs. We are currently seeking exceptional individuals who possess strong leadership skills, who have a desire to help others, are team-oriented and love to have fun in the outdoors. Join our team for the summer experience of a lifetime!

Quality staff

Each summer, the Colorado Lions Camp employs up to 30 staff and volunteers to care for the camper's personal and medical care needs. On-site camp staff includes: Executive Director, Camp Director, Executive Assistant, Program Director, Registered Nurses, Camp Counselors (age 18+), Counselors-In-Training (age 15-17), Activity Specialists (Arts & Crafts, Sports & Nature, Music & Drama), Food Service, Maintenance, Housekeeping, and numerous volunteers. Registered nurses provide routine medical care and administer medications. In addition, we have an on-call physician readily available to assist. 

CLC staff and volunteers are required to complete an intensive 50+ hour training geared towards camper care, medical & emergency procedures, behavior management, risk management, programming, and CPR/First Aid certifications. In addition, all staff and volunteers are required to complete the FBI and CBI background checks prior to interacting with campers. By maintaining a low camper-to-staff ratio of 4:1 or better, campers receive top-quality care and support with their daily needs.

"Thank you for helping me go to your camp.  Every year I am so excited when we get to the month of June and I will go back to camp.  It is so much fun doing the high ropes course, roasting marshmallows, and seeing my old friends.  Camp is my favorite thing to do!"
