Room and board are provided which include air conditioned staff dormitories affording the staff separate living quarters from the campers. Staff share cabin duty on a rotating basis.

Working with adults with disabilities is often a very real challenge. Campers may need help with personal care including feeding, dressing, and toileting. Some campers exhibit behavior problems. Patience, energy, good judgment and enthusiasm are important attributes for a position at Camp Courageous. The hours are long. An unselfish attitude and an emphasis on teamwork are needed. Staff members are expected to put the campers’ needs before their own. If you possess these skills, consider applying for a position.
