is the summer component of the year round Career Awareness Program. Children, ages 12-15, attend Camp Mariah for three weeks each summer. Participants apply in 6th grade (must be ages 11 – 13)

Campers explore their interests in classes like film, photography, fashion, culinary arts, debate and international relations. A careers class helps campers create resumes and cover letters and conduct mock interviews. Campers also play team sports, swim every day and explore the outdoors in environmental science class.

Camp Mariah is named in honor of Board member Mariah Carey for her generous support. Learn more here.

There are no words to describe camp except the best thing ever! Camp Mariah really exceeded my expectations.

Jai'den, 11, Camper

I have learned a lot here – volleyball, origami, swimming and chess. I also learned how to take photos! I have used a camera before, but now I really know how to make my photos better. I also learned about how to get access to the career I want. We practice interviewing for jobs and making resumes which is really helpful.

The incredible counselors that I had here when I was a camper inspired me to come back as a CIT and work towards being a counselor. Camp as fun, adventurous and exciting!
