Chestnut Lake Camp seeks a Summer+ (full-time summer, part-time off-season) Assistant Director to join its Professional Staff. The AD joins CLC at an exciting time, as we return to camp in 2021 after the unprecedented loss of the last summer to COVID-19, as well as the arrival of new owners/directors in Aaron and Ann Selkow. Over its 13-year history, CLC has continued to see a rise in enrollment and camper and staff retention, increased engagement with families, enhanced program development for campers and staff, and is poised to grow exponentially in the coming years. Together with a team of talented individuals already on-board – including longtime Assistant Director, Masey Hammons, and Operations Director, Alex Ward – the AD will help to implement camp’s values.
This is an outstanding opportunity to leverage previous professional experience and launch the next step of one’s career in a role that offers great flexibility and the opportunity for growth. Our AD will employ strategic thinking and develop mutually respectful relationships with campers, parents, summer staff, and colleagues that, together, enable excellence to be achieved. Central to this position’s success is the desire and drive to handle a variety of responsibilities, tackle a wide array of challenges, and participate in all aspects of camp’s planning, operations and implementation, with a specific focus on CLC’s residential life (Campus) areas that include approximately 350 children in 3rd through 12th grades and their staff.
