Staff Application Form (PDF)


We require 3 references with each application. Your application will not be complete until we have received your references. Make sure to use someone you have worked for, volunteered with, or been a student of. Good references are teachers, coaches, volunteer supervisors, or work supervisors. A reference should be able to judge your character and abilities to work with children and others. Do not send a reference from another student, a family member, or friend.

When completing our online staff application you will be asked to provide email addresses for your references.  Your references will be emailed a link to complete the reference form online.

Reference Form (PDF)  – ONLY use the PDF version if you references prefer to complete the form by hand and not online.


After we have received the completed application and both reference forms, we will call/email and set up a time for an interview. Most interviews take place over the phone or by Skype, but if you are close enough to camp, we will request an in-person interview.


After the interview and reference check process, if you are offered a position, you will be mailed a contract packet with the following five forms:

Contract for Employment: One copy to be mailed back to camp by the date indicated. Contracts not submitted by the return date will be void and the position offered to someone else.

Personnel Policies: A complete listing of Camp Hidden Meadows’ personnel policies that should be read prior to signing and returning the contract.

Background Check Form: Because our staff members work with children under the age of 18, we require that each staff member be submitted to a national criminal background check.

Driving Record Form: Staff members must provide us with a completed driving record from the Department of Motor Vehicles prior to the arrival at camp – no later than June 1.

Physical Examination Form: All staff members must complete our medical form and have it signed by a physician. This form must be returned prior to your arrival at camp – no later than June 1. All fees for the examination are the responsibility of the staff member.

Qualified Applicants are considered for all positions without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, marital or veteran status, or the presence of a non-job related medical condition or disability. Camp Hidden Meadows is an Equal Opportunity Provider and Employer.
