Company: Camp Cobbossee for Boys
Location: Norfolk
Posted on: January 17, 2020

Job Description:

Swimming Instructor / Cabin CounselorThanks for your interest in working at Camp Cobbossee!THE JOBCobbossee is a 4-week, 2-session sleepaway summer camp in Maine. The dates for this position run from June 7th to August 15th, 2020. For more on what summer camping actually is, see the very bottom of this document!Cobbossee is looking for a few talented and motivated Swim Instructors / Counselors. Situated on a gorgeous, clear water lake (Lake Cobbosseecontee) in the lakes region of Maine, Cobbossee has a picturesque waterfront, private access and a man made beach. Working at the Waterfront includes a Red Cross Lifeguarding course provided by us as well as a 5-day Waterfront Orientation for the Waterfront team to upload and practise all of the skills of proficient waterfront management.Each Swimming Instructor/Counselor lives in a bunk with (and cares for!) a set of campers and works at the camp waterfront during the day, teaching swimming with a range of age groups and skill sets. This position is also responsible for joining in with the rest of the waterfront staff on safety drills, training, and generally contributing to a strong team. Being on the waterfront team also offers a huge variety of roles and activities alongside instructing swimming including boat driving, all of our watercraft activities and fishing. You want to belong to an amazing crew and do good work all summer whilst learning or improving your skills for so many activities that involve water? This is for you.THE BENEFITSEver wanted to see New England? Well, in addition to your salary and bonus, Cobbossee will provide you with a travel stipend so you can get out to Maine without spending your own money.Room and board is also provided, so you won't spend any of your own money all summer on living expenses (the food is famously good at Cobbossee. No, really, it is).Further, days off and nights out are spent with other adventurous folks like you. Our counselors make lifelong friends at Cobbossee. Many return year-to-year.OTHER POSSIBLE BENEFITSWe can configure your employment this summer as job training, an internship, or just a really great summer job. Our director, Josh Holland, is a former academic and can make sure your experience is converted into internship credit if that's what you want. If you are in any child-centered major (teaching, education, coaching) or any sports-related field (sports management, kinesiology, movement, physical-education), this experience can be one of the best paid internships you can find.THE BOTTOM LINE"Summer jobs" are often seen as throwaway jobs. Not here. This job is going to challenge you. You are going to give of yourself, have an absolute blast, develop strong friendships with your peers, and really make a difference in young people's lives. You should come work at Cobbossee because we are one of the best. We develop counselors like we develop campers. You will change for the better. It will truly be the summer of your life.For anyone not familiar with the huge world of sleepaway camps in New England, it works as follows:All over the northeast each summer, families send their boys and girls up to New England to spend anywhere from a couple weeks to the entire summer at a sleepaway camp. Sometimes people who are not from the east coast see this as a strange choice, maybe even a mean choice! "Don't they like their kids?" the question goes. Of course they do. They love their children and it's hard for them to be away from them for the time they are at camp. But parents sacrifice time with their kids in the summer because summer camp is really good for young children. Camp (especially longer-term camps of four-to-eight weeks) teaches children independence, self-reliance, and confidence through the teaching of new skills, improving at sports, and living away from home. It isn't always easy. But it is worth it! Crucial to this process are you, the counselor. You become like a family member to the campers in your cabin. In fact, you will find yourself developing really fast yourself, just so you can be the best counselor and instructor possible for your kids! It is rewarding, challenging, and transformative work to care for campers.
