Welcome, Staff!


Staff Overview

Not all summer camps are the same. Camp Mah-Kee-Nac has been a leader in the camping field for 90 years! Over 200 families entrust their children to us for up to seven weeks because of the culture and community that our staff create, as well as our commitment to excellence. Most important is our commitment to recruiting, training and supporting an outstanding staff.

crafting-2Mah-Kee-Nac is a private seven week boys camp in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. We have 300 campers, ages 6 through 16. Cabin groups, programs, and all special activities are geared to the needs of each age group, and we bring everyone together for exciting all-camp events. We take great pride in the quality of our facilities and the excellent staff we assemble each year.

Most importantly is the passion staff uphold to want to live and work with children.  In addition, staff members are required to have completed high school, submit qualified references and possess the background and enthusiasm necessary to be an instructor in one of our program areas. We stress skill development and positive self-esteem, and FUN for our campers.

Much More Than Just Another Summer Job…

Being a camp counselor is the experience of a lifetime. The personal growth, the rewards of working with children, the excitement of an active community and the close friendships that you build will stay with you long after the summer ends. Working at camp will make you a better person. And you’ll take that with you wherever you go.
