Welcome to Nichols Day Camp’s Summer 2020!

Whee! Our 57th summer is upon us!

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, 2019 you can enroll in the second session of the CIT Program and be considered for employment the following summer.

To apply for a counselor position or the CIT program:

When you register, you will choose “staff” as your choice and then choose the session called “staff applied”.  Bypass protection plan offer by choosing “decline” and click register. Then go to Health Profile which will have General information, application part 1 and 2.

All counselor and CIT applicants will be subject to a background check prior to employment.

CIT program:  Please use our Registration tab to sign up for CIT training. When you register, you will choose “CIT” and choose which “CIT applied” session you would like.  The program will guide you through the rest of the process.

Hope to see you at camp!

I don’t think anyone could ever understand what Nichols Day Camps means to me. I have had the privilege of being a part of the Nichols staff for two summers of my life and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
