Who says learning and growing your skills professionally can’t be fun? You have found the perfect summer job, that is pure fun, better than Disneyland as campers will tell you.
Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp exists to empower children and adults with developmental disabilities through equitable access to the outdoors and recreation. The Camp’s primary program is Summer Camp, a residential sleep-away camp occurring from June to August and serving over 500 individuals with developmental, cognitive, and physical disabilities at our 22-acre campsite on the slopes of Mt. Hood.
All positions require the ability to live on Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp property for the duration of the session (2-week intervals). Housing and meals are provided while campers are on the property. The person who accepts this position must be flexible, be able to support a team, can be social, and be surrounded by the camp family 24/7. We also love and encourage our staff to be high-energy and love to sing camp songs!
MHKC is committed to creating a safe, inclusive, and equitable workplace. We value our staff immeasurably and will provide a fun, supportive, and welcoming space for you. You will be immersed in a hands-on learning environment with guidance and room to set goals to grow personally and professionally.
Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp (MHKC) honors organizational diversity with regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, culture, language, and all abilities. This deepens understanding in everyone, making MHKC a more equitable and inclusive organization to the benefit of all. We seek to raise self-awareness of our gaps in equity and inclusion by consciously creating, monitoring, and maintaining diversity among our campers, staff, volunteers, and board of directors.
We acknowledge that racism is pervasive and exists. As an anti-racist organization, we vow to purposefully identify, discuss and challenge issues of race and color and the impact(s) they have on our organization, its systems, and its people. We will acknowledge and dismantle any racism that occurs within our organization, whether it be conscious or unconscious. We will also challenge ourselves to understand and correct any inequities we discover and gain a better understanding of ourselves during this continual, purposeful process.
