Weekly salaries can range from $444/week for most program positions to $1,040/week for some of our leadership or high skilled positions. You also are provided room and board at no cost! That’s right, unlike some residential employers, we do NOT deduct room and board from your paycheck! This allows you to save nearly all of what you make! Check out all of our rates in the jobs brochure.

Many of our operations positions (Food Service, Facilities, Office) start as early as mid-May and end in August. Most positions begin on June 7th and end on August 9th. If you have specific schedule requirements, just talk with us! Some positions have flexibility. 

You’ll be provided meals and housing for the summer. Some staff who are local to the Quincy, CA area choose to live off-site in their own homes but most staff live on-site. Some staff live in private lodging with electricity (preference given for staff with greater experience) and some staff live with a fellow staff member as a roommate. Staff have access to private bathhouses with regular toilets and warm water.

That depends on the role! Program, Office, Housekeeping, Facilities, Store and Kitchen Staff all work hard, but have different schedules and duties. 

Most of our positions are six day work weeks and are capped at 40 hours per a week, however some positions are only scheduled 5 days a week (for 8 hours a day).

Our program positions typically start right before breakfast and last until the end of evening programming around 8:45 p.m. Time off is in shifts; you may have evenings off or specific hours for time-off during the day if you are working in the evening. You will also get at least one full 24-hour period a week as your designated off day. You can head into town, explore the nearby trails, mountain lakes or swimming holes, do laundry or relax on site at camp.

Located just outside of Quincy, CA, nestled in the Plumas National Forest, OFRC is a rustic, mostly outdoors site. 

You will participate in staff training that encompasses big picture concepts while also focusing on the specific skills required for your role. Our team of experienced camp leaders will be sure you have everything you need to know!

Some positions, such as the Camp Health Supervisor or Program Leader/Lifeguards, require specific certifications. Outside of those areas, we do not require special certification. However, any CPR/First Aid/WFR/AED certification is always useful in a camp environment!

We will provide all of the necessary equipment needed for your job as well as your staff uniform. You’ll just need to bring bedding and personal items like clothing, footwear, toiletries, etc. We’ll send a detailed packing list in the spring to all staff, but you won’t need special equipment. You’ll have to leave pets, alcohol, drugs, and weapons at home. Free laundry service is offered weekly for all staff members and staff members always have access to washing machines and supplies.
