Year-round Camp/Program Director

Camp Wildfolk is searching for a unique, special soul to join the small and mighty year-round crew.


This is a hybrid, year-round position consisting of two different roles within the year: Seasonal Camp Director (during winter, spring, + summer camps) and Program Coordinator during non-camp weeks.

We are looking to find a well-rounded human that encompasses the skillset of both roles and is looking for a long-term career in camp. 

Ideal candidate has prior experience as a Camp Director for at least 2 years. 

We hope to fill this position immediately with part-time hours, so that you can shadow/train with our Year-round Leadership Team during the months leading up to the Summer. 

There is a lot of room for growth!


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 the Leadership Team, delegating and problem-solving throughout the day. They are often the “Big Safety Eye” of camp, as well as the operation supervisor, ensuring that all camp procedures are carried out effectively and safely. The Camp Director is responsible for overseeing the planning, preparation and follow- through of every aspect of camp, delegating tasks to appropriate support staff as needed. They are the primary source of role-modeling and instilling our camp culture- a warm, inclusive, spirited community for staff, campers, and families.


          The Camp Director must have experience leading a team, keeping track of small details and overseeing several projects at once. During the Summer, each campus has at least one Assistant Camp Coordinator (ACC) who supports 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. During Winter and Spring mini-camps, the Camp Director may be solely in-charge of smaller programs.


 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 must be:

  • An empathetic leader

  • A problem-solver 

  • Oozing campy spirit- singing camp songs and hamming it up for the kids genuinely lights you up!

Program Coordinator

The Program Coordinator is responsible for overseeing camp office operations and program planning during the off-season.

You’ll organize and delegate incoming communication with office emails and phone calls. You’ll also be supporting the Staff Hiring Coordinator with hiring, interviewing, and planning for and facilitating staff training.  


          The Program Coordinator must be excel at time management, a self-starter, detail-oriented, and able to work both independently and in collaboration with a very small team. The Program Coordinator oversees a number of year-round projects, each with abundant subtasks and varying deadlines that they are responsible for managing. They need to be highly organized both within their personal workflow, as well as the team project management.


          It’s a cozy year-round team and thus imperative that each person feels passionate about camp, aligned with our mission, and committed to upholding a positive, joyful, compassionate work culture.
