This is a year-round, full-time, salaried position based on an average of 45 hours per week with many hours during the summer season and more regular hours in the fall, winter, and spring. A major focus of this position is the co-ed summer camp program which runs week-long sessions for approximately 10 weeks in June-August for children and youth in 1st-12 grade.

The Program Manager is responsible to oversee the planning and implementation of all of these program opportunities, including recruiting, hiring, and training additional staff and volunteer support, coordinating publicity and promotion, and ensuring that all supplies, equipment, transportation, food service, aquatics, and other needs are provided. In addition, during the fall, winter, and spring seasons, the Program Manager assists in other areas of camp operation (food service, housekeeping, family camp, buildings and grounds, etc.) in order to maintain full-time work. Benefits include a starting salary based on experience and within the context of our non-profit environment, on-site housing, family insurance, a pension plan, and professional growth funds.
