About this camp

Chipinaw is full summer residential children’s summer camp located in the Catskill Mountains of New York State.  Chipinaw @ Silver Lake is a 2 shorter session camp.  Both campuses offer over 60 activities to their campers from Arts & Crafts to Waterskiing and everything in between.  We are looking for skilled specialist counselors to run these activities.  We hire very few General counselors.

If you are applying to work as a specialist instructor you NEED to have experience in coaching or teaching in this field and a large amount of personal experience. You may be the only instructor in this area so you will be expected to teach all facets of the activity to all our campers. Please bring, certificates, awards and a portfolio of your work. We can’t just take your word for it.
