Camp Director / Assistant Director
You’ll be the envy of all your friends.
You’ll manage a team of dynamic, creative young adults. You’ll forge tight bonds with hundreds of campers and their parents. You’ll help cultivate future film producers and fashion designers (don’t forget to ask for autographs). You’ll gain real-world management experience — relationship building, training & supporting staff, customer service, operations, and more. Not to mention pie throwing, tower building, and hiding the rubber chicken. You won’t believe you’re getting paid for it. You’ll get training and support from seasoned camp pros. You’ll be encouraged to develop new ideas and approaches. You’ll be responsible for the day-to-day operations of one of our locations.
“Where?” You might ask. At Steve & Kate’s Camp.
We’re the people who introduced individualized learning in a summer camp setting, pioneered flexible enrollment and automatic refunds and implemented technology so aggressively that Apple featured us on their website. We’ve been around for 33 years but it wasn’t until the 26-year marker that we decided to grow. We’re just getting warmed up. Our philosophy and approach is what has set us apart from other camps since 1980. Take a close look on our website at www.steveandkate.com
All you have to do to be successful is…
Bring a strong work ethic to the table…this is no cakewalk. Be a firm believer in our philosophy and approach and have the confidence to make decisions aligned with our philosophy. Build strong relationships with parents, campers, and staff. Problem-solve and take initiative. And know when to ask for help. Be flexible and open to new perspectives and passionate about learning. Effectively juggle multiple responsibilities and demands on your time and attention. Never settle for ‘good enough.’
To be qualified you will…
Be a master communicator — in person, on the phone, and over email. Have a college degree, but find learning to be a lifelong process. Past management experience is a plus. Have reliable transportation to get to camp, trainings, and campers’ imaginary kingdoms. Be able to bench press a 5 year-old and physically move (& think) quickly to respond to any situation. Fingerprinting background check required.
