With eight locations across Chester County, YMCA camps offer a summer of fun, adventure and friendships for kids ages 3-15.

Our campuses offer acres of amenities and leverage all of our robust indoor and outdoor spaces to keep each day fun and exciting – rain or shine! Some fun activities include: daily swimming, gaga pit, slingshots, archery, inflatables, arts and crafts, canoeing and more*. 

*Camp activities vary depending on camp location.

Become a Camp Counselor

There are so many great benefits included with working at summer camp including:

  • Free YMCA membership
  • Fun Work Environment
  • No Weekends, No Nights
  • Having a positive impact on the youth in our community

In addition to great benefits, we just created yet another great reason to work as a camp counselor at the YMCA of Greater Brandywine.  SUMMER CAMP BONUS!  That's right, you as a camp counselor can earn a summer camp bonus of up to $425 this summer.

Guidelines for bonus: Get $350 for working 350 hours in camp during the summer.  (excludes training hours) If you work during the last three weeks of August (August 15 to Sept 2), you will earn another $25 a week for each week that you work over 30 hours.  That is another $75 you could earn. Bonuses will be paid in September.
