Overview

The Opportunity: We are seeking a Director for our Saltash Mountain Camp (SAM), a seven-week overnight camp for mixed gender campers aged 11-14. SAM is grounded in F&W’s values of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equity, and Sustainability. SAM is one of eight camps and programs operated by Farm & Wilderness.

The Director is responsible for the success of this program and its continued growth including all aspects of staff management, camper and parent relations, program development and management, camp risk management, American Camp Association accreditation, budget oversight and adherence to the F&W mission. SAM enrolls 30 campers in each of its two sessions and employs 15-17 seasonal staff.

Joyful play, purposeful work, rugged outdoor living. Our camps and conservation efforts kindle the spirit and teach timeless skills.

From mid-June through late August this role is full-time and on-site at SAM camp, on the shore of Lake Ninevah, about 20 minutes away from the Farm & Wilderness main office and close to two of our other camps, Red Spruce Grove and Flying Cloud. During the rest of the year, the Director has part-time responsibilities which can be done from any location with access to the internet. The Director will be able to schedule much of their part-time work, however there will be some scheduled events and meetings which the Director will be expected to attend.
