The Fiver Children's Foundation is a comprehensive youth development organization that makes a 10-year commitment to children from underserved communities throughout New York City and central New York. Through character-building summer and year-round out-of-school time programs, Fiver empowers children to make ethical and healthy decisions, to become engaged citizens and to succeed in school, careers, and life.

Job Description

Fiver is seeking camp counselors for our unique, residential summer camp that serves 450 children ages 8 to 18 from some of the New York area’s most oppressed and marginalized communities. Counselors are responsible for providing supervision, guidance, support and leadership to the campers in their cabin. As the camper’s primary caregiver during their two-week stay, counselors must be attentive to the camper’s physical, emotional and social needs. Through our character development program, Fiver teaches campers to be a Friend, an Individual, a Valuable Team Player, an Environmentalist and a Risk Taker. We are looking for outstanding role models to inspire and mentor our children!


Counselors should possess skills in a specific program area (art, dance, sports, waterfront activities, computers, etc) and be comfortable teaching this subject matter. Working together as a dynamic team, counselors should be fun-loving, kid-friendly, open-minded, patient, flexible, willing to learn, mature and compassionate!

Qualifications       

At least 19 years old by June 2021       

One year post high school experience working with children preferred



Located in beautiful upstate New York, Camp Fiver is a four hour trip from New York City and is 45 minutes southeast of Syracuse. Truly a “home away from home,” Camp Fiver’s 129-acre refuge includes a lake, a river, woodlands, a learning center, dining hall, horse barn and more. Counselors live at Camp Fiver for all six 8-day session including one week of training prior to camp.


“Just because you have a campsite, counselors and campers doesn’t mean that you have a camp. A true camp is one in which everyone can work together to help one another achieve their personal goals. Camp Fiver is not only a true camp; it is also a family.”  ~Written by a 5th year Fiver camper
