Adventure Camp Director Position

ADVENTURE CAMP DIRECTOR POSITION AVAILABLE - VERY RARE AND WON'T BE AVAILABLE FOR LONG!


Adventure Camp is absolutely the BEST after school and summer program in the area and we are looking for the BEST candidate to lead our school age children and staff. 

Our Adventure Camp program is for school age children, Kindergarten through 5th Grade. We usually have about 50 kids enrolled in our program. We pick up from W.T. Henning and R.W. Vincent Elementary. We have snacks, do homework, play hard, and unwind after school.

Multi-tasking, Problem Solving, Communication Skills, Technology Friendly, and the ability to "Take Charge" is a must in this small center since it operates independently from Appletree Kids.

As a Director, you will have the chance to inspire passion, connect with children and parents, embrace challenges, create opportunities, use your intelligence, share your compassion, and create solutions that will balance your business focus with a sense of fulfillment.
