Staff Opportunities

Thinking about working at Camp Beyond Binary?

Every staff member who worked for us last year commented “if only there had been a camp like this for me when I was younger” at some point during camp. We want you to feel that way, too! By working at Camp Beyond Binary this summer, you can provide a feeling of belonging, strong adult mentorship, and the safe space that campers need in this crazy world. At camp, you’ll be able to act silly, get dirty, sing loudly, and make a difference in campers’ lives. Camp isn’t easy, though. Sometimes you wake up early, sometimes it’s raining, sometimes you’ll feel sad, mad, or glad…as long as you’re willing to be flexible, be strong, and be patient, camp might be right for you. We rely on our staff to make an impact and give our campers an experience they’ll never forget. Are you ready to change lives?

So what does it take to work at Camp Beyond Binary? Applicants…

  • Must be 24+ years old at the time of camp.
  • Must be fully vaccinated against COVID 19 at least 2 weeks prior to camp.
  • Must be knowledgeable about and open to LGBTQ+ culture and terms.
  • Must be able to pass a criminal background check and National and NYS sex offender registry check.
  • Must be able to work a full week of camp and the mandatory staff training prior to camp sessions.
