According to Snagajob, Camp Counselors tend to get paid around $7.50 per hour or close to the minimum wage in each state. Almost all camp counselors work seasonally or part-time.
Wages for camp counselors vary by state and the duties that are performed. While most camp workers make close to minimum wage, they may earn premiums if they are hired for director positions. They may also earn premiums or a salary if they are expected to perform their duties overnight. Recreational job opportunities are expected to increase within the decade, which could lead to a wage increase, more hires or longer working hours.
