Traditional Camps

The Upper Midwest

Camp fires, blue blue lakes, wake up bells and beautiful backdrops found deep in the woods. Often passed generation to generation within families, Traditional Camps are what we think of when we think camp.

They are fun places that are values based, campers come for anything up to 8 weeks and often have a huge array of activities (on and off site) and great facilities.

The camps we work with are up towards Canada, in the Northwoods, in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Think bald eagles and moose, walleye and porcupines. Camps have been going in this region for over 100 years. There is good climbing on the shores of Lake Superior, great trips to be had in The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness which is over a million acres of protected land and much much more.

Its the perfect place for outdoor adventurers.

How we match

We take your skills, aspirations, availability and experience to match you to your camp that we know, we've been to and we know the team who run it.

You've got the skills, we've got your summer job

Who are FireSide Camps?

We've worked with camps for the past 10 years and have now decided to offer the best outdoor roles to skilled applicants.

We're looking for a small group of experienced and enthusiastic people to head to the camps that we know.

We are a small family business who find great people for great camps.
