Be an Alleghany Counselor
Welcome to Camp Alleghany’s staff page! We thank you for your interest in working as a Ghany Counselor. Our counselors are women ages 18 and older, many of whom attended Alleghany as campers themselves. Alleghany encourages the return of alumnae year after year to help keep camp traditions and friendships strong. We also encourage new and international applicants as a way to diversify our camp community. All staff members must apply, interview, and submit to a background check annually. Additionally, we expect all our counselors to adhere to the Honor Code, the No Gossip Policy, and the Counselor Code of Conduct while employed by Alleghany. Below you will find the application as well as useful information to help you decide which position at Alleghany will best fit your talents and personality. We hope to see you this summer!
