Working at Marlborough Summer

Who are our Camp Counselors?

Marlborough Summer utilizes talented high school and college students to assist and inspire our K-12 summer school participants. They are provided with extensive training and are mentored and supervised by Administrative Coordinators. Our Camp Counselors are expected to approach their roles with a seriousness of purpose, a love of learning, a joyful spirit, and a strong desire to work with children.

Who can apply?

High school and college students who are 16 years-old or above by June 1, may apply to work at Marlborough Summer School. Applicants must be able to commit to our five-week program, and a week of training. Each summer, Marlborough Summer School selects approximately 60 camp counselors who demonstrate dedication, energy, organization, and leadership skills and display the desire to work with K-9 students. We also offer a Counselor in Training program, and will hire students who are 14 or 15 years-old by June 1 to be part of the program. Space is limited.
