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 girl’s sleepaway camp we are in need of a few great equine instructors to run our program for our 7-15 year old campers.

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 C’s”: 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.
