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.

Pay for this role is $5000 to $8000 depending upon experience for the main dates of the summer (May 17th to August 13th).

More About Augusta:

Working at Augusta is an experience unlike any other. Our days are beautiful, demanding, inspiring, educational, hilarious, frustrating, silly, surprising, intimate, active and most importantly, full of opportunity. Our staff have ample opportunities to develop themselves personally and professionally. In our 3.5 week staff training and throughout the summer, staff can learn and practice progressive models of child development and counseling, communication techniques like clean communication and Nonviolent Communication, diverse leadership styles as well as how to live in a tight-knit community. Come with an open-mind, a trusting-heart and plenty of ambition, and leave with a soul on fire!

We are a residential summer camp that offers six sessions (3 week-long and 3 two week-long) playing in the sun with 90 campers each session. We are committed to fostering the innocence and imagination of childhood, and we aim to give campers time away from the distractions of modern life. From sleeping in open air cabins without electricity to replacing television and radio with camp songs and campfire skits, we give campers the opportunity to reconnect with the beauty and simplicity of nature.

Augusta stands proudly and equally on two pillars: play and personal growth. Play is the heart of our summer camp experience. Where camper’s dreams meet counselor’s know-how, Augusta breathes magic into every day. And just as important as the spirit of play, personal growth underpins every aspect of life at camp. Engaging deeply with our intentional community, both campers and staff have the opportunity to develop self-awareness, confidence, creativity, healthy ways of communicating and so much more!
