Area Director/Division Head, Camp Sequoia

An Area Director/Division Head is a college graduate responsible for program development and implementation within the scope of the philosophy of Camp Sequoia. They will work with the Program Director within an established budget to provide exceptionally fun and innovative opportunities for our campers. First and foremost, the Area Director is responsible for the safety and welfare of campers and staff when engaged in their program activities. Each Director is hired for a unique and specialized knowledge as well as the ability t to work with non-neurotypical population.

Typically an area director will lead, and provide guidance to general counselors (who arrive with campers) as how to best assist during each activity. At times their role will range from assistant instructors to working with campers 1:1 outside the scope of the activity in order for the activity to be a success for the remainders of the campers. Communication upon arrival to each activity is crucial to understanding the oft changing dynamic between and among campers.

Area directors will be responsible for specific portions of written camper evaluations (in collaboration with Head Counselors) and will be represented in daily leadership meetings to ensure smooth camp operation. An area director will arrive at camp with Senior Staff and will have time to plan and coordinate activities in advance of student arrival.

In addition to scheduled evenings off, each Area director has a 36 hour day off each week. Activity specialists may be assigned to go with campers on weekly adventures out of camp, ranging from Hershey Park Amusement Park to the Baltimore Inner Harbor.

Area Directors generally live in a private dorm room and assist with the age group of young men to whom they have been assigned. Specifically this means serving as a supportive extra set of hands during wake-up, transitions, shower time and bedtime. Area Directors can expect to help with evening activities several times a week and serve as an on call supervisor after lights out on a rotational basis.

Camp wide, the staffing ratio is 2 adults for every 5 youth and this allows for a great deal of support and reinforcement at all levels. All staff enjoy the flexibility of copious indoor space for program areas. From air-conditioned lounges with televisions, to incredible gyms, fitness center, heated indoor pool and a myriad of other facilities, including an art studio featuring skylights and a kiln, this camp experience provides a synergistic blend of traditional camp elements (from fishing to swimming to overnight trips with campfires and marshmallows) to innovative offerings such as the new STEM academy.

Compensation includes room, board, travel stipend, campus-wide wireless access and summary salary starting at $2000+, depending on experience and certifications. Dates of employment are 6/15 – 8/9.
