Camp Sequoia is the premier summer camp in the Philadelphia area for children ages 8-18 who need help with social skills. Most of our campers are diagnosed with one or more of the following: ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, high-functioning Autism or a Non Verbal Learning Disability. The focus of our camp is helping campers to have fun, make friends and improve their social skills through an innovative approach.
Our facilities are incomparable in the summer camp world as we are located on the campus of a prestigious boarding school. .We offer a great work environment, competitive salary, time off and ongoing staff training. Unlike most overnight summer camps which are located in rural areas we are in a suburb with public transportation right outside our door. Downtown Philadelphia is an hour away.
The majority of our staff are undergraduate students, grad students and teachers who are early in their careers or going into the fields of education, counseling or psychology. All of our positions require clearance checks as mandated by law. Applicants must have experience working with children, experience working with children with learning disabilities is preferred.
