Apply for this job
Cobbossee is a 4-week, 2-session sleepaway summer camp in Maine. The dates for this position run from June 16th to August 15th, 2020. For more on what summer camping actually is, see the very bottom of this document! Cobbossee is looking for a few talented and motivated Lacrosse Instructors / Counselors! Situated in Upper camp on our floodlit playing fields lies our professional Lacrosse Program. This year Cobbossee's Lacrosse program has seen a huge amount of program and equipment development and this lends itself to being an awesome year to work at lacrosse. Lacrosse at Cobbossee is all about having fun so that more of our boys can enjoy and engage in the game. Too many camp programs lack in addressing the new and casual players who want to learn more about the sport. We offer high-end coaching alongside excellent fundamental skills coaching and we need enthusiastic young lacrosse players to run the fields effectively. If you like the sound of being part of an effective team teaching lacrosse to our boys all day then this is the camp for you! Each Lacrosse Instructor/Counselor lives in a bunk with (and cares for!) a set of campers and works at the courts during the day, teaching lacrosse to a range of age groups and skill sets. This position is also responsible for the upkeep of the fields, lacrosse equipment and generally contributing to a strong team. You want to belong to an amazing crew and do good work all summer? This is for you. THE BENEFITS Ever wanted to see New England? Well, in addition to your salary and bonus, Cobbossee will provide you with a travel stipend so you can get out to Maine without spending your own money. Room and board is also provided, so you won’t spend any of your own money all summer on living expenses (the food is famously good at Cobbossee. No, really, it is). Further, days off and nights out are spent with other adventurous folks like you. Our counselors make lifelong friends at Cobbossee. Many return year-to-year. OTHER POSSIBLE BENEFITS We can configure your employment this summer as job training, an internship, or just a really great summer job. Our director, Josh Holland, is a former academic and can make sure your experience is converted into internship credit if that’s what you want. If you are in any child-centered major (teaching, education, coaching) or any sports-related field (sports management, kinesiology, movement, physical-education), this experience can be one of the best-paid internships you can find. THE BOTTOM LINE “Summer jobs” are often seen as throwaway jobs. Not here. This job is going to challenge you. You are going to give of yourself, have an absolute blast, develop strong friendships with your peers, and really make a difference in young people’s lives. You should come work at Cobbossee because we are one of the best. We develop counselors like we develop campers. You will change for the better. It will truly be the summer of your life. For anyone not familiar with the huge world of sleepaway camps in New England, it works as follows: All over the northeast each summer, families send their boys and girls up to New England to spend anywhere from a couple of weeks to the entire summer at a sleepaway camp. Sometimes people who are not from the east coast see this as a strange choice, maybe even a mean choice! “Don’t they like their kids?” the question goes. Of course, they do. They love their children and it’s hard for them to be away from them for the time they are at camp. But parents sacrifice time with their kids in the summer because summer camp is really good for young children. Camp (especially longer-term camps of four-to-eight weeks) teaches children independence, self-reliance, and confidence through the teaching of new skills, improving at sports, and living away from home. It isn’t always easy. But it is worth it! Crucial to this process are you, the counselor. You become like a family member to the campers in your cabin. In fact, you will find yourself developing really fast yourself, just so you can be the best counselor and instructor possible for your kids! It is rewarding, challenging, and transformative work to care for campers.
