SYAP Employment

Why Work for the Rice Summer Youth Activity Program?

Some of the best reasons to be on staff with SYAP this summer may surprise you. Sure, working with kids is rewarding and spending the summer being physically active is enticing, but have you ever considered that working at summer camp might actually be good for your career?

If you are at least 17 years of age and considering a career in athletics/recreation, sports management, coaching, teaching, dance, theater, fine arts, child development, child psychology or management of any kind, working for us will provide you with practical, meaningful experience to build your resume. We offer a dynamic work environment with competitive pay. Apply today to join our team of counselors!
