Spend your summer working in the mountains of the beautiful Pike National Forest at the Colorado Lions Camp, while making a difference in the lives of those with disabilities. We are currently seeking exceptional individuals who possess strong leadership skills, who have a desire to help others, are team-oriented, and love to have fun in the great outdoors. Join our team for the summer experience of a lifetime!
Each summer, the Colorado Lions Camp employs up to 15 staff and volunteers to care for the camper's personal and medical care needs. On-site camp staff includes: Executive Director, Executive Assistant, Program Director, Registered Nurses, Camp Counselors (age 18+), Counselors-In-Training (age 16), Activity Specialists (Arts & Crafts, Sports & Nature, Music & Drama), Food Service, Maintenance, Housekeeping, and numerous volunteers. Registered nurses provide routine medical care and administer medications. In addition, we have an on-call physician readily available to assist.
CLC staff and volunteers are required to complete an intensive 50+ hour training geared towards camper care, medical & emergency procedures, behavior management, risk management, programming, and CPR/First Aid certifications. In addition, all staff and volunteers are required to complete the FBI and CBI background checks prior to interacting with campers. By maintaining a low camper-to-staff ratio of 4:1 or better, campers receive top-quality care and support with their daily needs.
The Colorado Lions Camp is committed to employment equality and encourages all qualified candidates to apply. If you require accommodation at any point during the hiring/employment process please let us know as we will work with you to meet your needs. All responses will be handled with strict confidence.
To apply, please fill out the employment application along with three (3) reference forms and email them to our Executive Director.
Just as we go out of our way to train our staff and develop skills in teaching, coaching and learning, you will in turn teach campers the invaluable skills of independence, personal growth, teamwork, goal setting, and more. Serving a summer at camp provides for exceptional personal and career development.
If you are a college student considering a career in athletics, sports management, coaching, teaching, dance, theater, fine arts, child development, psychology, or management, summer camp provides a practical, meaningful experience to build your resume.
