Summer 2018 Dates
It is extremely important that you know that you can commit to working at Alleghany for the entire summer.

The 2018 Summer Camp season runs from June 11, 2018 – August 4, 2018. If you are unavailable for any significant portion of the contract dates, please do not apply.

What Else Do I Need to Remember?
Returning counselors have an even higher expectation on them.
Because you know what’s expected in this job and shouldn’t re-apply unless you’re willing to commit to the job as earnestly as you did the very first time. Part of this is because you’re now not only setting an example to campers, but also setting the standard for Junior Counselors and new staff.
