If you know anyone looking for summer employment, tell them about the OCA and share this page with them. Consider where their interests might have the most impact. For example, a budding artist may enjoy working at an arts and crafts camp. Do they want to go away for the summer at an overnight camp or work at a day camp with the flexibility to come home in the evenings? Remember, previous camp experience is not a requirement for many camp jobs!
