Glenelg Country School is seeking qualified candidates to work in our Summer in the Country program. Glenelg Country School, located in Ellicott City, Maryland, sits on an idyllic 90-acre campus and provides camps each summer for children entering pre-kindergarten through tenth grade. The camps focus on a variety of interests, including STEM, sports, arts, robotics, cooking, adventure, nature, music, sewing, writing, chess, and more. Glenelg’s Summer in the Country camps run June 20, 2023, through July 28, 2023, Monday – Friday. Counselors are expected to work 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, for an average of 35 hours per week, with the option of additional hours working Before or After Care. Camp is closed on June 19 and July 4, 2023, due to the holidays.
It is the expectation that the lead counselors will thoughtfully engage with children, and create a fun, upbeat, and safe environment for all campers. They are responsible for supervising campers, planning activities, and participating through care, interaction, activities, and games. Candidates should have a desire to work in a fun, face-paced, child-friendly environment and the ability to work well as part of a team. Preference is given to those with experience in working with children or who are working toward training or a degree in the field of parks and recreation, childcare, child development, or education. Candidates must be at least 18 years old and have experience working with children.
