The Oasis summer camp operating during the summer on campus is looking for students to fill various positions for this upcoming summer, including: operations director, swim director, teen travel director, office administrator, camp counselors and instructors. The camp runs from June 26 to Aug. 18, but the start and end dates for employees depends upon position placement.
Oasis took over the summer camp that has been held on the Post campus for about twenty years at the end of last season. This will be Oasis’ first summer running the camp on campus. Children attending the camp are 3 to 15 years old, and participate in activities from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day. Counselors will be required to arrive earlier and leave after their last camper leaves.
Before the season begins on June 26, counselors are required to attend an orientation. “There is a three-day on-site orientation for staff,” Oasis’ Staffing and Family Relations Associate, Lindsay Goldberg said. “Division leaders, program, operations, swim health, and teen travel directors will attend a leadership launch on June 10.” The operations director will be required to start May 30. “This is where [he or she] will have training and prepare to work for the summer,” Goldberg said.
Oasis accepts applications from students of all years and majors, but encourages education majors to apply. Administrative experience is necessary for the administration positions. Rising seniors with a business or management major are required for operations director.
