Seasonal Facilities and Kitchen Staff

Ashford, CT

All applicants must be at least 16 years of age. 

Our priority is to keep our staff and our precious campers, patients and families safe. It has become increasingly clear that vaccines have proven to be the best protection from COVID-19. Effective September 1, 2021, all staff and volunteers will be required to have received the COVID-19 vaccine and be fully vaccinated.


Application Process

The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is planning to return to camper-exclusive programming in summer 2022 with seven, five-day sessions operating at a reduced capacity and various COVID-19 safety protocols incorporated including a requirement that all participants be fully vaccinated. The summer program will also include two, four-day Family Camps for those unable to participate in camper-exclusive programming, which will follow the 2021 summer program model with on-site testing, physical distancing, masking and other COVID-19 safety guidelines. And a wide array of alternative and virtual programming will also remain available to our children and families.

While we remain hopeful that Hole in the Wall’s 35th summer will more closely resemble a traditional season, Camp’s medical team will continue following local, state and national public health guidelines and those considerations will ultimately determine how we can most safely conduct our on-site program.

Applications will be reviewed as they are received, and we will consider candidates for phone interviews. Staff positions may require several phone interviews. All hires will be contingent on positive references, criminal background check, proof that the applicant is legally authorized to work in the United States, and the completion of comprehensive Medical History/Physical Forms. Medical forms will be provided once an applicant has been accepted.

Application Deadline

Positions will be filled on a rolling basis until all positions are filled.

Reference Forms / Letters

Three references are required for each applicant; at least one must be a professional reference. References from family or friends will NOT be considered.
