Camp counselors who reside on the premises of a seasonal camp of an organized not-for-profit corporation are not subject to the adult minimum wage if the camp counselors work 40 or more hours each week and receive a total weekly salary of at least the adult minimum wage for a 40-hour week. If a counselor works less than 40 hours each week, the counselor must be paid the minimum hourly wage for each hour worked. Employers of camp counselors are entitled to an allowance for meals and lodging as part of the hourly wage rate. A camp counselor employed at a day camp is not subject to the adult minimum wage if the camp counselor is paid a stipend on a onetime or periodic basis and, if the camp counselor is a minor, the minor’s parent, guardian or other custodian has consented in writing to the terms of payment before the job begins.
