Summer Camp Director (Seasonal or Full-Time)

Posted: 11/15/2022

Are you an inspiring leader looking for a way to make a big impact in the community? Get outside with us and help KC kids learn and grow together! As a Camp Director at Wildwood, you'll join a dedicated team in a beautiful place and enjoy the challenges and benefits of the hottest, hardest job you'll ever love--directing overnight camp. 

Connecting Kansas City kids with nature, adventure, and community is what we do best at Wildwood. From our programs to our policies, we value learning, diversity and equity, and stewardship of resources. We believe in the power of camp to enrich kids’ lives, and we remove barriers to summer camp participation by reducing costs, providing transportation, and using a network of neighborhoods and agencies to share information about camp. 

Wildwood Outdoor Education Center is seeking a Camp Director to help fulfil our strategic plan and further our mission in the community. Wildwood uses a cross-functional and collaborative approach to planning and delivering our mission. This position focuses on: 

  • hiring, training and managing a connected and representative seasonal staff; guiding and mentoring staff to build intentional relationships;
  • planning and executing excellent overnight camp experiences to achieve social-emotional learning and youth development outcomes;
  • and building strong connections with camp families and partner organizations to increase retention of campers.

 The position requires living and working on-site at our camp in La Cygne, KS during summer months (June to August). We are open to a variety of living and working locations and arrangements outside of the summer months. The position could be seasonal or full-time depending on the needs and interests of the candidate. Family housing is available in the summer and could be available year-round.
