Camp Augusta

About Camp Augusta

“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” Dr. Seuss.

Camp Augusta is not your average summer camp. We have the longest staff training in the country, 150 + activities, an organization built on a flat hierarchy, nonviolent communication, success counseling, AND fortnightly oatmeal fights. We are focused on counseling skills, creativity, camper choice, and imagination part of the core of our camp - see more in our vision page here:

Come be our next Gandalf, Dumbledore, or Yoda. Come be part of the adventure!

“Camp Augusta likes to create magic for children -- that means that your time at camp as a staff member is also a magical one! There is a huge investment in personal growth for counselors. With the onboarding, longest staff training in the country, and a point person to support your growth throughout the summer, my experience at Camp Augusta has had far more personal growth than any other camp I've ever worked for (Augusta is my 3rd camp work experience). If you are interested in growing your knowledge of child development and communication psychology in fast-paced hands-on environment where you also get to to dress up in costumes, sing loudly, and let your silliness shine, this is the place for you! ”

“I loved the people. I've worked at a handful of other summer camps for 5 years, and every single one of them depends on a small group of dedicated people to turn ordinary experiences into magical ones for the campers they serve. The people at Augusta are passionate, goofy, responsible, caring, and so much more! ”
