Miniwanca Jobs

Summer Opportunities

The Miniwanca summer camp community is a vibrant gathering of people from around the world who support youth in discovering and developing their own best self.

Set in the forested dunes and beside the shores of Lake Michigan and Stony Lake, Miniwanca exists as a place apart. Step away from the fast-paced world this summer, and join our rich community of over 700 campers and 150 staff members from around the United States and the world.

A summer at Miniwanca offers more than just a pay check. Here you will join a community, find a place of belonging, and be a part of a team making a difference in the world. Whether you seek a role on our Facilities or Food Programs team or you see yourself working more closely with our campers in the cabins or on our adventure trips, Miniwanca offers a chance to create a positive community, to help our campers discover and develop their best, and to discover and develop your own best self.
