Overview

If you are seeking an extraordinary summer of personal and professional growth, welcome! We are seeking you, too!

Camp Augusta is an 80 acre, non-profit, residential summer camp nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains of Northern California, and we offer a one-of-a-kind experience for campers and staff alike. From zipline canopy tours to dinner dressed as pirates and jewelry-smithing to horseback rides through enchanted forests, the days at Augusta are always full of imagination, laughter, wish, wonder, and of course, surprise.

Office Manager:

The Office Manager is the main hub for communication between parents and camp. Their main responsibilities include answering phone calls and high volumes of email, organizing camper and staff paperwork, communicating with the bookkeeper, being the phone-voice of camp, using spreadsheets, and much more. This position helps create the possibility of camp magic in so many ways. In addition to their office duties, the Office Manager will teach one or two activities daily. A high level of customer service, multitasking ability, and attention to detail make a successful candidate. Availability in the pre and post-seasons is preferred.
