Camp Taconic is home to approximately 500 campers ages 7 to 15 and close to 300 staff. We are located in the beautiful Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Our staff comes from all over the United States as well as Canada and abroad. Our community thrives on the diverse backgrounds and cultures, which our counselors bring. We are all bound by one common thread: our passion to work with children.
At Taconic, we have a full program of activities. One of our premier program areas is the Waterfront! We have many activities at the waterfront, including sailing, waterskiing, boating, swim instruction and fishing. Each of these areas has a qualified staff that works alongside our outstanding Waterfront Director and Assistant Director. Taconic is located on beautiful Lake Ashmere and a position at our waterfront is amongst the most popular areas to work at camp. During a summer at camp, counselors gain invaluable experience teaching, mentoring, working with children and more!
This is the perfect opportunity for college students looking for a summer job and internship. We provide room and board for the summer, a competitive salary, travel reimbursement, internship credit and it is an overall wonderful experience!
“Working on the water and getting to coach kids in the water sports that I’m passionate about made for one of the best summers of my life. You can feel and see their excitement after finally finding success and standing up on either a wakeboard or water skis” – Connor Hollister (Massachusetts Maritime Academy)
