Camp Androscoggin is the summer home for 250 boys between ages 8 and 15 and 100 staff. For over a century, campers and counselors have been playing sports, participating in a host of individual activities, forming life-long friendships and sharing summers to remember on our 120-acre lakeside campus.
The Head of Climbing position is a great opportunity to take on a leadership role and create and manage a challenge course program.
Our facilities include a 28’ two-sided climbing wall, “leap of faith,” “flying squirrel,” and zipline as well as numerous low ropes activities. While your primary responsibility will be the “ropes” department, our other outdoor adventure activities include biking, campcraft, canoeing/kayaking as well as both day and overnight trips.
As Head, you will supervise 2 to 3 staff with climbing experience but not necessarily teaching experience. You will also have the opportunity to work with other outdoor adventure staff, many of whom are seasoned outdoor educators with a wide range of experience.
Your responsibilities will include designing and managing a safe and fun program that incorporates climbing skills, team building and overcoming personal challenges.
