Camden officials seeking youth and adults for summer jobs

With the temperatures heating up this week, summer is on many people’s minds, including Camden City Mayor Dana L. Redd.

Redd announced Wednesday that the city’s Summer Recreation/Food Service Program is accepting applications for a number of adult and youth summer jobs.

Temporary summer employment in the city pays between $7.25 to $15 an hour, depending on the position. Jobs available for adults and youth include summer program monitor; recreation site supervisor and aide; pool coordinator and lifeguards.

The city’s Summer Youth Employment Program is designed to provide a six-week educational experience and financial incentive for Camden teens. Youth must be between 14 and 17 years old to work. Applications are due May 25.

For more information, contact the City of Camden’s Bureau of Recreation, North Camden Community Center (1000 N. Sixth St.) at 856-757-7096. For more information regarding youth employment, contact the City’s Office of Youth Services, Charles “Poppy” Sharp Community Center (713 Broadway) at 856-757-7368.
