Job Description & How to Apply Below
Position:  Camp HQ Staff

At Steve & Kate's, we put kids in the driver’s seat and staff come along for the ride. Campers choose minute to minute what they do, with whom, and for how long, because kids who learn to make decisions today build the self-confidence they’ll need to wrangle unknowns tomorrow. Sound like something you can get behind? If so, we're looking for meticulous multi-taskers, who geek out on paperwork AND are great with people to run our on-site camp office. As an HQ Staff member, you’ll sharpen your inherent organizational and communication skills and do meaningful work, while getting an immersive experience of creativity and play.

The job in a nutshell.

Camp HQ is a fast-paced environment where there’s non-stop engagement with kids, parents, and staff. This isn’t your typical office job, so erase the visions of cubicles and bad coffee from your mind. The role requires strong organizational, time management, and interpersonal skills as your prioritize a broad range of responsibilities throughout the day, including:

  • Greeting, checking-in, and checking-out campers as they arrive and leave using our custom-built camp management software
  • Welcoming visitors on site, ensuring site security, and maintaining a clean and organized office space
  • Fielding inbound emails and phone calls, as well as calling parents/guardians and sometimes having to navigate sensitive conversations regarding injuries, account and behavioral issues
  • Chatting with and helping re-engage campers who wander into HQ looking for their next adventure and adding individualized notes to camper accounts about daily events
  • Managing our First Aid station, which includes administering and documenting treatment of injuries and other medical issues
  • How do you know if you’re the right candidate?

    If you answer yes to all of the questions below, definitely apply now.

  • Do you appreciate and agree with our self-directed approach for kids?
  • Are you a lover of systems, organization, to-do lists, punctuality, and cleanliness?
  • Would sparking up conversations with staff, campers, and parents fit in your comfort zone? Are you comfortable navigating challenging and sometimes sensitive interactions?
  • Are you the type of person who can’t rest until you’ve done everything possible to make someone feel cared for? Like, if someone you knew was in need, would you do more than send them a “thinking of you” text?
  • Are you calm under pressure and able to calm those around you?
  • Do you have the stamina to keep up (literally) with 4-12 yr. olds bursting with energy and creative potential? And, if needed, can you bench press the equivalent of a kindergartner (just kidding --- can you lift up to 30 lbs)?
