TTT is a program that runs for two weeks at the start of Camp Wyoming’s summer camp season. Because the program is for 4th grade girls who wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to come to camp, we hire 8 additional female staff for those two weeks of camp. TTT camp is a challenging, rewarding, and exciting experience. While this is a job, and you will do normal job-related things like cleaning and providing customer service, it is also an opportunity for you to care for children, lead activities, and interact with a community of people that shares, builds up, and strengthens one another. We are looking for individuals who want to join this program and serve others.
