Timbertop Camp at Hampshire Country School is hiring a Program Coordinator to be a summer logistics mastermind on our leadership team for summer 2023!
The four-week session runs the month of July (one arrival day, one departure day) on our school campus and out of our modern, home-style dormitories. Mornings start with physical activity around our 2,000 acre property and farm. Once we get our blood pumping we transition into an hour and a half of art, outdoor skills, sports, and games. Lunch is followed by a rest time, and the afternoon is capped by a long beach session and free-choice block. Evenings are a time for community activities, whole-campus games, and small moments of wonder and joy. Bed-times start at 9pm for our youngest boys and range until 9:45 for our oldest. Occasionally, our normal programming is “interrupted” by special events and community stewardship projects.
Timbertop camp is also developing an exciting roster of summer trips! So, pack your lunches and grab your trusty water bottle and camp t-shirt because Timbertop camp goes places and does things! Journeys to Boston attractions, the local and beautiful Mt. Monadnock, and Ice Cream adventures are just a few of the adventures we may take with our wonderful campers.
An ideal candidate is an up and coming camp professional with a desire to take on a leadership role in a small community of teachers, residential staff, and administrators. Experiences in residential camp leadership (dorm head, program coordinator, unit lead) or extensive organized camping employment required. An educational background in recreation management or trips experience is a plus.
