We are inviting interested applicants to:

  • Review the role options below

  • Apply by sending the following to brenda.j.flynn@gmail.com:

    • A resume or CV with qualifications

    • A cover letter outlining what you might do as a Camp Director and why you are interested

    • Let us know which of the staffing models you’d be interested - and qualified - to apply for

 

Our goal is to finalize the staffing for Director by February 2022 - please send applications by January 31, 2022.

Role Options

Please take into consideration as you review which roles you are interested in that the more individuals who are contracted to fill the role - the less work each individual will have, but also the less each individual will be paid.

Sole Directorship

This role takes on sole individual responsibility for all the Job Responsibilities of the Director - from planning to staff training to social media. In this role, you are responsible - with the support of the Board of Directors and Camp Wilmot family - for all of the preparation and execution needed for Camp Wilmot to run successfully in 2022. This should be considered a full time role for at least one month leading up to Camp.

 

For ACA Compliance reasons, this role should only be held by someone 25 years of age or older.

 

Sole Directorship & Maintenance

This role adds the responsibilities and compensation (variable based on experience) for the Maintenance Director to the existing Job Description of the Camp Wilmot Directors. This should be considered a full time role from mid Spring through the end of August.

 

For ACA Compliance reasons, this role should only be held by someone 25 years of age or older.

 

Physical requirements also include the ability to lift 50 pounds.

Lead Director with Supporting Directors

In this version of Directorship, we expect one primary Director to be responsible for the organization, planning and delegation of the work needed to plan and execute for the 2022 camps, with Associate Directors responsible for specific elements. The breakdown of roles is a suggestion - the BOD is open to proposals on how candidates would like to organize their work.

 

Lead Director 40%: Primary responsibility to ensure all necessary tasks and functions are assigned and executed. Planning and coordination fall under this role, in addition to executing on many of the day-to-day tasks of Directorship. This person would be primarily responsible for communications with the BOD, other directors, staff and accrediting facilities. The Lead Director may also choose to do one of the Supporting Director roles as listed below.

 

This role should be held by someone 21 years of age or older.

 

Curriculum Director 30%: Responsible for the planning, preparation and execution of the Camp Wilmot curriculum. Leads communications about the themes of camp, designs or selects appropriate theological curriculum and modifies it as needed for the unique traditions and profile of Camp Wilmot. This person should also be ready to be a spiritual mentor for staff and campers. This role will also include communications, such as social media campaigns, fund-raising or outreach.

 

Facilities Director 30%: If the pipes are leaking, this person is on call to identify the problem, inform the BOD, and marshal the resources to fix the problem. This Director will lead Camp Opening Weekend, document the physical needs of Camp and take initiative to either fix those needs or ask the BOD/Maintenance Director for help to resolve the issues. It is the responsibility of this Director to ensure the facility is ready for Campers!

 

Co-Directors

A co-Director model would be more self-organizing, without a lead role. At the beginning of their term, the Directors should identify who will be responsible for which of the Job Responsibilities of the Directors, and communicate those planned responsibilities to the BOD.
