Job Description

Ready for a challenge? We are looking for a Waterfront Director at a day camp waterfront which looks and acts more like a resident camp waterfront. An optimal candidate for this position would have resident camp waterfront administrative experience (or equivalent), YMCA/JCC Aquatics administrative experience, or high-level Camp administrative experience. In this Waterfront Director role, you will be responsible for implementing and overseeing an instructional, age appropriate program of swim instruction boys and girls, aged from 4 to 8. The Waterfront Director will be responsible for supervising a team of 15-20 lifeguard/swim instructors and will also oversee our inflatable adventure course. All our swimming is done in a lake, using a floating dock system to separate swim areas.
Applicants must have a great personality, be hard working, detail oriented, work well as part of a team, be an outstanding communicator and love to solve problems. A capacity to learn and grow is a must. Communication with camper parents is an important part of the Waterfront Director job, as well as the overseeing of the upkeep and maintenance of the lakefront beach area and docks.
This is a truly rewarding job where you will be challenged in many different areas and come out of the summer with a huge sense of pride and achievement! You will develop and refine skills that will be helpful to you for the rest of your personal and professional life. You will receive guidance and feedback from the Camp Directors so you will always have a place to turn when you need help. If you are looking to forge a career in the Camp industry, in aquatics or in education you could not ask for a better experience than this!
