Job Overview

The Day Camp Coordinators are responsible for managing the facilities and the staff. We are looking for someone who likes to create and organize schedules, run meetings, and back up Instructors with enthusiasm and participation when things get silly, muddy and wild! Putting your maturity hat back on, Coordinators are responsible for the camp’s parent interactions and communication, both face-to-face and over the phone. Emotional intelligence is sought in a Coordinator Candidate so they can offer help to staff in times of need, including situations involving campers. They help lead large-group activities, storytelling and swim time. When possible, they observe and provide feedback on staff instruction and group management. Coordinators must have previous experience managing a team in the outdoors so they can be confident in their decision-making leadership if events occur such as extreme weather, injuries, emergencies, or when disciplinary action is needed.

The summer camp season runs June 3 through August 10, with a week of training and a break week July 1-5. If you need housing, you are invited to stay at our Staff Camp. Here there are individual tent spaces, shared outdoor covered kitchen, shower, internet and toilet amenities as well as the comradery of living beside your coworkers and diving deeper into natural living skills.

Compensation: $950/wk starting pay
