YMCA Camp Chingachgook (pronounced “Chin ja cook”) is now hiring outdoor educators, program instructors, and interns to lead outdoor education programs.

We are a dynamic community of curious, playful, and compassionate individuals committed to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

Located on Lake George at the base of Buck Mountain in the New York Adirondacks, YMCA Camp Chingachgook is a wonderful place to live and work. Our campus includes fields, woodlands, wetlands, stream, lake, and mountains as well as sports fields, courts, a multi-faceted challenge course, rustic cabins, farmyard, organic garden and a fleet of small-craft.
