Bright Horizons Camp Assistant Director in New York, New York
At Steve & Kate's, we put kids in the driver's seat and staff come along for the ride. Campers choose minute to minute what they do, with whom, and for how long, because kids who learn to make decisions today build the self-confidence they'll need to wrangle unknowns tomorrow. If you join our team as an Assistant Director, you'll sharpen your inherent leadership skills and do meaningful work, while getting an immersive experience of creativity and play.
The job in a nutshell is to help run all facets of a self-directed summer camp.
While working alongside one of our year-round Directors responsible for leading each camp, you'll build relationships with hundreds of parents and children, helping them overcome fears, discover passions and generally find their groove at Steve & Kate's; you'll help train, lead and inspire a summer team; and you'll oversee the day-to-day operations for your site to keep things running smoothly and safely. We view this role as a training ground and pipeline for new year-round Directors, so if you're interested in a career at Steve & Kate's, this is a great way to gain valuable experience and get your foot in the door.

Can you multitask like you're a Hollywood power agent all while keeping calm, level headed and nice? Especially the last one?
Do you have the stamina to keep up (literally) with 4-12 yr. olds bursting with energy and creative potential? And, can you bench press the equivalent of a kindergartner (just kidding --- can you lift up to 30 lbs.
