Lake Creek Youth Camp has immediate openings for a Cook. This is a full-time SEASONAL positions running from mid-May through the camp closure, usually around the end of September.

Anyone with experience cooking for groups or an interest in cooking is encouraged to apply. The Cook may also be asked to help out with other projects and duties between camps or with events where we don't do the cooking.
