Location: Camp Cody is conveniently located two hours from Boston, and just a short drive away from the Lakes Region and White Mountains National Forest, which are great locations for sightseeing, shopping, hiking, and canoeing.
Camp Cody’s lakeside setting on Lake Ossipee is truly spectacular. The glacial lake, which is 4 miles long and 2 miles wide, is spring fed and has natural sandy beaches. Surrounded by hills and mountains from the White Mountain National Forest, our property includes shoreline and woodland walking and biking trails.
Working at Camp Cody: Camp Cody strives to maintain an environment that both encourages personal growth and creates an unforgettable summer experience. The Cody Community, which is a caring and supporting one, sits at the core of everything that takes place at camp.
While Camp Cody’s facilities and location are terrific, we believe that it’s our camp counselors that make the summer experience truly special. At Cody you will find a tremendous concentration of “nice campers” and “great role-models” that provide a wonderfully inclusive environment for our campers. We have so many first-time camp families in large part because of the emphasis we place on recruiting seasoned staff and outstanding camp moms.
Cody’s staff join us mostly from colleges and universities within the USA. Having a good match between staff and camp is very important. We look for staff who have strong skills in a teaching area, plus a GENUINE interest in working with children. We hire staff who come to camp to “give of themselves” to campers. Our staff also have the necessary levels of maturity, common sense, dependability, trust, and selflessness required in working with children. We have high expectations and requirements for behavior. All program staff are activity instructors or assistants. Non-program staff work in office, dining, maintenance, and medical areas.
Activities: Camp Cody’s lakeside setting offers a wide variety of recreational activities, including lakeside or woodland walking and biking trails, as well as tennis, basketball, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, sports, and ropes courses.
Camp Cody offers a well-rounded and progressive “Trips Program,” which includes lower scenic falls, Echo Lake Park, Diana’s bath, deep sea fishing, rock climbing, zip lining, paintball, monkey trunks and several overnight trips. Each two-week session includes a bunk trip (e.g. hiking Mt. Washington), outdoor adventure trip (white water rafting) and waterpark trip (Watercountry!) that varies depending on age, gender and years at camp. In doing so, each summer and two week session is entirely unique. Every year there are new challenges, trips and adventures!
In addition to 30+ activities and 20+ trips, each day camper will focus on improving one or more of our Core Activities (tennis, swimming & waterskiing). Whether they’re getting up on skis for the first time or perfecting a serve, campers receive individualized instruction from our staff who work to develop, improve, and inspire a love of these life-long skills.

About Camp Cody Camp Jobs
The camp season is open to campers for an 8-weeks period, but staff arrive early for pre-camp staff training and orientation. During “staff week” we open cabins and set-up equipment. Intensive briefings also take place on camp operation, policies, games, and camper reviews. It is both a fun and busy week.
Although, Cody runs for eight weeks, nearly half of our campers attend only one of our two-week sessions. Campers live in same-gender cabins with boys or girls in the same age bracket, attending for the same time period.
A dozen or so staff choose to arrive early and up to several dozen stay “post season” (for one, two, three, four, six or eight weeks throughout the summer) to help with other mini-camps we run and to do general fix-up work as needed. If this is of interest to you, please let us know ahead of time.
Camp Cody is hiring for Activity Counselors. View the post on our job board.
