We have a unique opening for an Office Manager to join our leadership team and the world of summer camp!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who We Are
Camps Kenwood and Evergreen are brother-sister overnight summer camps, specializing in life-changing experiences and growth for children through sports, arts, outdoor pursuits and most of all through the relationships created in our inclusive community. The Camps are located in rural New Hampshire (just 2 hours from Boston) and in the off-season (Sept -- May) we work in our winter office in Sharon, MA. During the summer, Camp is home to a vibrant and welcoming community of over 300 children and 180 staff from all over the world. Year-round, the Camp Office is a focal point for communication between parents, campers and staff and our Office Manager is an integral part of the administrative team.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hours
Part-time (9am -- 2:30pm) in the off-season (Sept-May). During the off-season (Sept-May) occasional weekend and evening work will also be required.
Full time in the run up to, and during, the Camp season (May - Aug).

IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE that the Office Manager MUST be able to relocate to the Camp property in New Hampshire (housing is provided) during the summer (a minimum of 8 weeks). Housing is not provided in Sharon, MA during the off-season.

Due to this unique schedule, the position may be particularly suited to a local parent who would welcome the opportunity to work flexible hours during the school year, and is interested in a subsidized summer program for their children.
