Camp Leadership - Openings
Camp Leadership roles exist at all camps in slightly different forms and fusions. What they all have in common is close collaboration with Camp Directors, a strong hand in managing operations and a goal of making camp amazing for every camper. A few role specifics:
- Assistant Camp Director
Inspiring leaders of staff, enthusiastic builders of positive and unforgettable camper programming, Assistant Camp Directors work closely with their Camp Director to provide overall leadership for camp programs. Assistant Camp Directors manage staff and lead many camp activities, often including the camp's Extended Care program. Natural born leaders, initiative takers and characters of all kinds encouraged.
- Extended Care Coordinator
Extended Care Coordinators oversee all aspects of the camp location's Extended Care Program. We are looking for a dynamic, flexible individual who will help us shape this new camp staff role. Working closely with the Camp Director and Operations Coordinator, Extended Care Coordinators are responsible for ensuring a high level of camper safety, strong program delivery, and quality staff, camper, and parent experience. You will help generate enthusiasm and inspire our campers after the traditional end of camp, where they will engage in additional activities and structured down-time.
- Operations Coordinator
The organized face of camp operations, customer service, and parent peace of mind, each camp's Operations Coordinator provides administrative support to the Camp Director and the camp staff. Multi-tasking mavens, computer pros and project management gurus welcome.
Camp Director - Openings
Camp Directors preside over staff selection and supervision, manage day-to-day operations and serve as the smiling faces of camp in their communities. Undeniable leaders and skilled collaborators, Camp Directors interact masterfully with campers, parents and community members, while working with their staff teams to craft their camp’s unique traditions and personality.
Regional Staff - Openings
Regional Lead Instructors and Team Leaders provide multiple camps in a geographic region with leadership and support throughout the summer. Generally veterans in their areas of responsibility, Regional Staff feel comfortable jumping in wherever's needed - on different staff teams, with different groups of campers, teaching different curricula. Leadership skills required, gymnast-like flexibility a plus.
Substitutes - Openings
Substitute Lead Instructors and Team Leaders are an elite force of flexible staff that fill in for planned and last minute summer staff absences. A perfect opportunity for those open to or requiring a shorter summer commitment, substitutes fill in for absences lasting a day, a week, and sometimes longer. To appropriately compensate these staff for the on-call nature of these positions, substitute compensation includes potential for a sizeable summer bonus.
