As an Avid4 Adventure day camp instructor, you have the amazing responsibility of inspiring kids to lead active outdoor lifestyles. Adventure Instructors teach our 2nd-7th grade campers who have the choice of participating in multi-sport camps and/or single-sport camps. Our Explorer Instructors lead K-1st grade campers. Discovery Instructors work with our Pre-K (3-4 year olds) campers.
Multi-Sport Camps: During a week of multi-sport, instructor pairs guide campers through one adventure activity each day which can include: climbing or stand-up paddleboarding, mountain biking, hiking, canoeing and kayaking. On rock climbing and mountain biking days, instructors will partner with Specialist Instructors, who have advanced skills in each adventure sport.
Single Sport Camps: Instructors facilitating single-sport programs work with campers on one of our core sports for the entire week, including white water kayaking, SUPing, survival skills, rock climbing, mountain biking, and bike-park riding. Activities take place on and off-site, depending on program and camp location.
As a Day Camp Instructor, you will become part of a team of outdoor professionals who receive support and mentorship from our camp leaders, grow their teaching skills, and enjoy a community of peers who live the values our camps teach. The ideal candidates are detail oriented, highly organized, and ready for action. Applicants must also have significant experience leading children and experience in at least one of our core sports. Just as important, being an Avid4 Adventure Day Camp Instructor means being ready to inspire youth to live an active, outdoor lifestyle and have a summer full of fun!
All day camp instructor applicants will complete a general online application. During the interview process, we will determine which type of day camp and role is the best fit with your background.
