Joseph Conrad Overnight Summer Camp: Camp Counselor Position

June 1-August 21, 2020

Mystic Seaport Museum Sailing Center is seeking camp counselors for our Joseph Conrad Overnight Summer Sailing Camp. During this residential summer program campers and staff sleep aboard a historic full-rigged ship, the Joseph Conrad, learn to sail Dyer Dhows, and participate in fun activities in the evenings, including a Planetarium show, climbing the rigging, and more. This position is responsible for assisting in the day-to-day camp operation including supervising Counselors-in-Training and campers, and implementing evening activities. This position is responsible for creating and implementing all afternoon and evening activities; counselors will not be responsible for instructing sailing but may be asked to be on-water support. The position requires great leadership skills and the ability to work well with children. Room and board is included, meals provided while camp is in session. This position may be used as internship credit-based on your college or university’s requirements. Camp Counselors work Sunday-Friday, mostly in the afternoon and evenings, this includes blocks of time off every day. A willingness to work a flexible schedule according to the needs of the camp is essential. One full weekend off during the summer is guaranteed. For more information about the camp visit: http://www.mysticseaport.org/learn/summer-camps/conrad/
