Welcome to Nichols Day Camps’ Summer 2022!

Whee! Our 59th summer is upon us! 

We are now hiring for a Nurse and Camp Counselors!

If interested, please email We look forward to hearing from you!


Counselor Openings

NDC’s high-quality returning and new staff are our greatest assets. Come join us and you will participate in a pre-camp, week-long intensive leadership training program. This training program emphasizes the care and well-being of our campers and teaches you quality activities and programming. We will also focus on building relationships with campers, parents, CITs, fellow counselors, directors and other members of the Nichols Day Camp summer community.

Carefully selected and trained, our returning and new counselors ensure that NDC has the best possible role models for our campers and younger counselors.

Counseling is serious business! Ask any parent what it’s like to hand to strangers their most precious loved-ones for the first time. But it can be a lot of fun, too. It provides you with lifelong skills, certainly, but also memories of fun and laughter that will last your entire life. We suggest you go to the Nichols Day Camp Facebook page and “like” it to read what former counselors and campers from 10-50 years ago have to say.

If you are 14 years old you can read about our CIT Program, which is our leadership training program for former campers wishing to become a counselor. Successful CITs  in Session 1 must be 15-years-old and will be considered for employment immediately following training, which means you could potentially be a counselor later this summer! If you will be 14 years old by June 15, 2020 you can enroll in the second session of the CIT Program and be considered for employment the following summer.

This is a wonderful camp with very committed and enthusiastic counselors, in a wonderful location on Walker Pond. Unlike snooty and expensive camps that provide too much to children, this is an unpretentious environment that teaches respect for self, others and nature.
