Camp Director/Campground Manager

Updated: Position Filled

» See Job Details

The Wannakumbac Summer Director position will look much different this year compared to a typical summer. With our pivoted business model to adjust to the pandemic, we are looking for a leader who can organize volunteers while also getting their hands dirty. This role for 2021 may better be described as a Campground Manager.

As the Director, you are responsible for coordinating “day camp” style activities offered to the patrons of our campground. Communication with volunteers will be a main duty of the Director. You will be tasked with organizing volunteers to run the games and activities, while also scheduling regular cleaning and maintenance. At times you may be required to lead games or be a part of the cleaning schedule yourself. Other duties will include secretary tasks such as answering phone calls and emails regarding the campground, assisting with campground bookings, and taking payments.

We are looking for a candidate who shares our values. Our vision with Wannakumbac remains to create a space of acceptance and diversity within campers and volunteers alike. The Director will also play a vital role as we continue our efforts in making camp more sustainable and eco-friendly.

Responsibilities

  • Ability to work long hours on your feet
  • Can work well under pressure
  • Communicating with the public (written and oral)
  • Leadership and coordination of campground volunteers
  • Maintain a strong line of communication with Management
  • Abide by general safety regulations and camp beliefs
  • Great customer service
  • Work in a team environment

Requirements

  • Three months of full-time work (35 hrs/week) with flexible hours
  • Flexible start/end dates (preference would be from mid-May to mid-August)
  • Must live on-site and be present during work hours (accommodations provided)
  • Previous experience as a Wannakumbac camp counsellor
  • Organizing volunteers with a clear and concise schedule
  • Lead social-distance appropriate games and activities
  • Train volunteers to lead social-distance appropriate activities

Campground “Counsellor” (Volunteer)

» See Job Details

We know this is not anything close to a typical summer as a Wannakumbac counsellor. But we need your help this year as much as ever before.

We are looking for volunteers to lead games and activities for the youth who stay at our campground. When you’re not leading youth, you’ll be required to complete campground cleaning or maintenance tasks as assigned by the Director. You’ll be given on-site accommodations during your scheduled time at camp, as well as meals with access to a kitchen. We hope to make this role as close to a usual camp counsellor position as possible. You’ll have the opportunity to lead campfires, supervise free-time style activities, and stay in accommodations with your fellow counsellors (dependent on restrictions).

Responsibilities

  • Leadership and guidance of campground youth
  • Work with the Director to prepare daily games and activities
  • Teach & supervise daily activities
  • Complete regularly scheduled housekeeping duties
  • Complete scheduled maintenance duties
  • Participate positively in all assigned tasks
  • Abide by general safety regulations and camp beliefs
  • All other reasonable duties as assigned by the Director

Requirements

  • Must be on-site 24-7 when scheduled (accommodations provided)
  • Past experience working with youth in a camp setting
