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 disabilities. 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 great outdoors. Join our team for the summer experience of a lifetime!


At the Colorado Lions Camp, we employ up to 15 staff and volunteers each summer to ensure that our campers receive the best possible care. Our on-site staff includes an Executive Director, Business Administrator Program Director, Registered Nurses, Camp Counselors (age 18+), Counselors-In-Training (age 16), Activity Specialists (Arts & Crafts, Sports & Nature, Music & Drama), Food Service, Maintenance, Housekeeping, and numerous volunteers. Our Registered Nurses provide routine medical care and administer medications, and we also have an on-call physician readily available to assist.

We're proud to say that our staff and volunteers are required to complete an intensive 50+ hour training that focuses on camper care, medical and emergency procedures, behavior management, risk management, programming, and CPR/First Aid certifications. We also require all staff and volunteers to complete the FBI and CBI background checks before interacting with campers. By maintaining a low camper-to-staff ratio of 4:1 or better, we're able to provide top-quality care and support to meet our campers' daily needs.

The Colorado Lions Camp is committed to employment equality and encourages all qualified candidates to apply. We value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all staff and campers. If you require accommodation at any point during the hiring/employment process, please let us know, and we will work with you to meet your needs. All responses will be handled with strict confidence.

To apply, please fill out the employment application, along with three (3) reference forms, and email them to our Executive Director. Join us in providing an unforgettable summer experience for our campers while also gaining valuable skills and experience yourself!

Just as we go out of our way to train our staff and develop skills in teaching, coaching and learning, you will in turn teach campers the invaluable skills of independence, personal growth, teamwork, goal setting, and more. Serving a summer at camp provides for exceptional personal and career development.

If you are a college student considering a career in athletics, sports management, coaching, teaching, dance, theater, fine arts, child development, psychology, or management, summer camp provides a practical, meaningful experience to build your resume.
