Camp Coach Program

Looking for a way to make some money this summer AND give back to your organization? Join us this summer as a camp coach!

This year we have full-day camps at both Rockwood and Squaw Creek! We will also have half-day camps at our Briscoe Elementary and Benbrook Par 3 locations. There’s plenty to do around here!

You’ll gain an understanding of what it means to be a coach and mentor, experience elements of customer service, and enjoy the opportunity to work with friends and peers!


Your responsibilities as a camp coach will include but are not limited to…

  • Conducting Life Skills curriculum during camps and/or classes as a lead or support coach
  • Maintaining participant and coach safety
  • Contributing to the development of new and creative camp activities
  • Assist in occasional events and tournaments which may include the FWJGA Championships, PGA Jr. League, and Cup Series events



  • Be 16 years of age or older
  • Have been in the First Tee program for at least 2 years (if current participant)
  • Have previously volunteered in some capacity with First Tee – Fort Worth (classes, camps, Junior Advisory, etc…) OR have been a previous intern

Don’t meet the requirements yet to be a paid summer coach? Think about volunteering with us and get great experience!



Hours will be based on needs of summer camp registration.

Flexible schedules allow coaches to set their schedules around their plans.


Monday, June 5 – Friday, June 9

Training prior to the start of summer programming is required for all summer coaches, new and returning. Training will include administrative setup, review of risk management, health, and safety policies, child safety training, summer coach training, and creative collaboration on camp activities.


Camps will run from June through the second week of August, with the exception of no camps the week of the 4th of July.

We are flexible with schedules, however we do ask that you notify us of any dates of absence as soon as you know them or no later than one week beforehand.

NEW! Summer Intern Program

Looking for a bit more out of your coaching experience? This year we’re introducing our new Summer Intern Program!

In addition to the responsibilities listed for our camp coaches, one intern will be selected for each of our four program locations to assist site directors with scheduling and site management. Interns will also gain experience in various areas of operations by shadowing First Tee staff and attending select leadership opportunities. Areas of experience may include: operations, human resources, marketing, social media development, programs innovations, project management, and more!

Summer interns will be eligible for a bonus at the end of their summer in addition to an enhanced level of experience beyond the traditional camp coach experience.


Applicants will be selected based on their application responses and recommendations from First Tee – Fort Worth staff. Only one intern per site will be selected. Applicants must be current participants or alumni of the program to be eligible to apply. All those who are not selected for this year’s program will remain as camp coaches for this summer.

How do I get started?
