Spend your summer mentoring young people, teaching and playing in the woods, and learning and growing as part of an amazing camp community! As the Mountain Biking Program Director at Gwynn Valley Camp this summer, you’ll teach beginner-level mountain biking classes to children ages 8 – 12 most days of the week. You’ll also lead six mountain biking day trips throughout the summer to nearby Dupont State Forest, manage a small team of biking instructors, perform bike maintenance, and help conduct various camp activities in the evening. Housing is provided on-site, plus you’ll eat amazing food in our dining hall, make lifelong friends, learn new skills, build connections with outdoor industry professionals, save money (free room and board!) and have a ton of fun!
