Job Description

Camp Mather - Now Hiring Seasonal Employees

Get out and Play in Yosemite Valley!!

Choose your favorite summer recreation and you will find it at Camp Mather in the High Sierra/Yosemite Valley. In a setting unparalleled in the West, you can work at one of the premier family camps with a wide variety of activities available at San Francisco’s own ‘vacation land.’  This will be our 100th anniversary year at Camp.

We need Camp Assistants, Recreation Leaders, experienced Lifeguards and Food Service Staff to lead exciting outdoor activities in this locale of spectacular beauty. If hired for a Recreation Job, you can possibly assist or lead recreation activities of all types and for all ages, campfires, camp talent show, and our very own new experiential ropes course.  Experienced rope course leaders are especially desirable.

Crystal clear lakes, surging streams and quiet mountain forests surround Mather and offer unlimited recreation to visitors. Help us create fun-filled days followed by entertaining nights of dances, campfire songs, skits and games for San Francisco camp patrons.

From dusk to dawn, help us create memories that will last a lifetime and through the generations while slowing down the quickened pace of modern life.  Campfire entertainment, sport activities, supervised recreation programs for children, fine dining, all are yours in exchange for your working with us this summer up at Camp Mather!
