Camp Director

The Camp Director is the leader of the TLC team and responsible for overseeing camp flow, under the guidance and supervision of the Site Director. The Camp Director supports TLC coordinators, delegating and problem-solving throughout the day.  The Camp Director is responsible for overseeing the planning, preparation and follow- through of every aspect of camp, delegating to appropriate support staff as needed.

The Camp Director must have experience leading a team, keeping track of small details and overseeing several projects at once. Each campus has at least one Assistant Camp Coordinator (ACC) who supports with the big camp activities such as Funky FriYAY planning, as well as camper support, so that the Camp Director can stay available to oversee the big picture.

 It’s imperative the Camp Director be adept at forward thinking, always looking ahead to the next camp session (instead of planning for the immediate), and yet also able to be flexible and adapt plans on the fly that are still aligned with the camp protocols and mission.


At the heart of it all, the Camp Director will be modeling camp culture in everything they do- infusing camp magic, silliness, thoughtfulness, and joy into interactions with families, campers, and staff. 

The Camp Director should have prior experience supervising adults and years of teaching experience. Prior camp experience is preferred. The right candidate will be looking to work at Wildfolk for at least 3 summers.
