Work at Camp

Do you have more than just a passion for camp, but also the unique skills that make you the best version of yourself when at camp? 

Tsuga Staff are typically recruited from Multnomah County’s Outdoor School, the Northwest Outdoor Science School, and other affiliated summer camps.  Those who have participated in one of our programs are also great candidates to continue their involvement as staff.

Tsuga Staff have been developing their unique style of camp programming since 2006 at more than ten different camp sites around Oregon.  In 2008, this group of camp professionals founded the Tsuga Camp Staff Coalition running programming as an Oregon LLC.  Since 2010 when TCC incorporated as a nonprofit organization, staff who have served for at least two summers are issued an Oregon Camp Staff Coalition (OCSC) fraternal number (see below preceding each name).  The Camp Staff Coalition thrives as an organization of young professionals, mutually encouraging career development opportunities through their experiential learning, service to a nonprofit organization, and by enjoying the lifestyle of a summer camp community.  To all those listed here – Thanks for your talent, passion and community stewardship.
