GO WEST CAMPS, Colorado Springs’ premier Summer Day Camp is hiring staff for summer 2024. Here you will find all the community and connection of an overnight camp but have your nights and weekends free! Go West staff work Monday-Friday, 35-40 hours per week, May 20th-August 2nd.
ROCK CLIMBING STAFF – Rock Climbing Staff are responsible for leading our rock climbing programs. We’re lucky to have the opportunity to climb at some of Colorado’s best climbing destinations (Garden of the Gods, Red Rock Canyon, North Cheyenne Canyon). This position will focus on the entire climbing experience, not only technical aspects but helping to guide campers to learn something new, conquer a fear, or push past limiting beliefs. Previous guiding experience or certification is preferred.
Go West operates on a small group philosophy and staff will typically work with a group of 12 campers and one other staff member. The ages of our campers range from 5 to 15.
When it’s time to get energized or wind down at camp, music can be key. We’re always looking for staff who are excited to sing or play an instrument. We hope to use photos and video to document our campers’ experience at camp. If you’re a photographer or GoPro wiz, we need your skills.
