Camp CDS is seeking part-time summer camp teachers for the 2017 summer season. Our camp runs 6 weeks from June 19-July 28, 2017, and camp staff must attend an orientation meeting, CPR/first aid training if not already held, and help set up their classrooms the week before camp begins. Camp counselors will be paired with experienced Early Childhood teachers familiar with the Country Day School facilities and philosophy. This is a great chance for college or high school students to gain field experience in a nurturing, play-based setting at a NAEYC accredited preschool, and for professionals to share their talents with our campers. Our camp program incorporates daily swimming in our on campus pool and water play depending on age, outdoor play on our 3 acres of grounds, exciting summer fun such as pony rides and moon bounce visits, and much more.
Openings include camp teachers of 2-year-olds (Mon-Thu), 3-year-olds (Mon-Fri), and 4-year olds (Mon-Fri) in morning classes, hours approx. 8am-12pm or 1pm, perfect for those taking summer classes. Salary commensurate with experience. If interested in learning more or applying contact Mary Franklin (email@example.com).
