What it Takes to Be an Operations Coordinator or Program Assistant

The organized faces of operations, customer service, and parent peace of mind, our coordinators provide administrative leadership to the entire team.

Each camp’s Operations Coordinator provides administrative support to the Camp Director and the camp staff. From running camper check-in and check-out to interfacing with HQ, Operations Coordinators ensure a seamless experience for campers and staff alike. Multi-tasking mavens, computer pros and project management gurus welcome.

The Program Assistant is the behind-the-scenes programming guru of each site. Along with the Operations Coordinator, this leadership role sets the tone for service mentality and work ethic for every other camp staff member. Perfect for those that love databases and camp songs alike.
