INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Looking for some summer work?  

The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis is looking to hire more than 650 people ages 14 and up. The jobs include lifeguards, swim instructors, camp counselors, and camp-site directors.

For day camps, the YMCA is hiring nearly 500 people ages 16 and older to provide programming for children and serve in all camp positions. Hourly pay will range from $10-$16.50 depending on the position. 

The YMCA will look to hire 150 to 200 people to staff indoor and outdoor pools as lifeguards, swim instructors, and more, with free training and positions available for applicants as young as 14. 

The Y offers flexible schedules so employees can work around sports, band practices, other jobs, and more. The positions pay between $9.25 to $15.  

There are over 15 camp locations throughout Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, and Marion counties, with 10 indoor and outdoor pools.
