Outdoor Skills & Adventure Director
Camp Waldo is an overnight camp on the banks of the Greenbrier River in southern West Virginia. We teach 4th-9th graders to respect, conserve and protect the environment. Camp programs include ecology, overnight camping trips, paddling, archery, a ropes course, arts, and other adventures and educational opportunities.
We are hiring an Outdoor Skills & Adventure Director to plan and execute Outdoor Adventure programs for our campers in southern West Virginia. We are looking for a candidate that is motivated to extend our camp experience and build a rich outdoor program rooted in environmental ethics and the resources of Appalachia. One of our defining traits as a camp is our strong environmental ethic and we hope that the person filling this position will be an extension of that.
The Outdoor Skills & Adventure Director will lead trips that will include hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, and paddling. This position will also teach campers camp craft, wilderness survival, navigation, and other technical skills. The OA Director must be capable of working with diverse counselors (young adults) and campers. This person would also work closely with another Outdoor Adventure Lead in the day-to-day coordination and execution of this program.
In an effort to align with our mission, Camp Waldo serves vegetarian. We work with all campers and staff that have dietary restrictions.
This job will require onsite work during the period of May 30th to July 30th with some preparation work in the month(s) leading up to camp.
