Join our Facilities Team
Our Facilities Team includes the Green Team, Kitchen staff, and Housekeeping.
The Green Team is comprised of heavy-lifters…literally. You must be able to regularly lift 50-100 pounds, be on your feet for long periods of time while out-of-doors, and work with a sunny attitude to keep the facilities at Camp Alleghany for Girls working cleanly and efficiently. At the same time, it’s a great team, full of camaraderie and fun!
Kitchen staff attend to meals both in our Dining Hall and for picnics and special events.
Housekeeping staff keep common areas and facilities clean and perform other light site cleaning duties.
Our support staff comprises a range of positions, including medical staff (weekly doctor and nurses), managing the store and post office, managing the Hoppers (wait staff), barge lifeguard, nannies, and more. Often these suit applicants who would like to return to camp but cannot make an all summer commitment.
