Camp Towanda is a family operated, 7-week, coed, traditional sleep away camp nestled in the countryside of Northeast PA. While honoring our 95 years of tradition and continuing to innovate, we offer all land and water sports and many other activities that develop key social skills by reinforcing group bonding and respect. For a full list of our activities and facilities check out our website! We are filled with down to earth people that know how to have a good time. Working at Camp Towanda, you get to make a real difference in children’s lives and contribute to the tradition and spirit of camp, while learning real-world career-building skills, such as leadership, management, public speaking, responsibility and accountability. We offer internship opportunities for credit too! The role of a counselor varies. Department heads, specialists, group leaders, general counselors and support staff all play a vital role as being a part of the team. Staff members must be patient, fun loving, spirited, and genuinely concerned with the welfare and development of young people. In fact: we only look for staff members who will serve as role models for our campers.
