Job Opportunity at Camp Wicosuta


I just wanted to share a job opening that might be of interest to you all. If you could pass this along, I would really appreciate it. This upcoming summer at Camp Wicosuta, a traditional, all girls sleepaway camp we are in need of a few great equine instructors to run our program for our 7-15 year old campers. We are also looking for an Activity Head for the program. You can learn more about the job description below. If you or anyone you know is interested please feel free to contact me through this email or by phone at 914-946-0927/800-846-9426.


Founded in 1920, Camp Wicosuta is a traditional four-week sleepaway camp for girls in Hebron, New Hampshire that offers two sessions. Our philosophy is based on providing the 3 Cs: Confidence, Competence & Community. Our goal is for every camper to walk away feeling confident in herself, and competent in her abilities in any number of areas. We teach these skills in a physically and emotionally safe community in which our campers are challenged to move past their self-set limits.

As a camp counselor at Wico you will live in a cabin with 6-12 campers and instruct in the activity area of your expertise. We are seeking instructors with a comprehensive background, as well as the ability to easily adapt and modify lesson plans for various age groups.

As a one of our horseback riding staff you would be in charge of teaching lessons in our full-sized ring, caring for the horses, and taking campers on our back country trail. We participate in a number of small equestrian competitions each summer to showcase skills students have learned and other horseback events are also integrated into our full camp competition called Color War.

Activity Heads are responsible for all aspects of their program area from supervising staff and designing curriculum to area maintenance and staff scheduling. AHs have a high level of expertise in their area including experience supervising, teaching, and coaching children ages 6-15 & staff. AHs are self-starters, flexible, organized and creative.

Must be available: June 12, 2016-August 18, 2016

Stipend includes: Salary, Travel Allowance and Room and Board

Enjoy your time off: Staff Lounge with wifi &tv, days off options to Boston, Burlington, Hanover & Maine
