Employment Opportunities at Hale Reservation
Summer Employment Opportunities
Applications open on January 2, 2013 for summer jobs.
During the summer, Hale Reservation is a vibrant community with over 120 employees delivering programs to children and families from throughout Greater Boston.

Hale hires summer staff for three distinct program areas - Membership Beach, Hale Day Camp & Agency Camp programs. Although jobs and programs differ greatly, the type of person we are looking for does not - energetic, enthusiastic, dedicated and honest people with a good sense of humor. Please make sure to indicate your area of interest on the application.
