Sailing Director - Camp Lake Hubert

Share your sailing expertise!

Our camp is “skill-based;” we use that term to describe the activity experience. Campers work toward skill development in chosen areas. As campers learn activity skills from positive role models – that’s you! – they also practice social skills, community living, and group communication. The opportunity to influence youth in the unique setting of camp is life-affirming, challenges you daily, and builds a solid foundation for growth as a leader in all aspects of life.

A typical camp day consists of a 4-period activity schedule. Each camper chooses activities every three days to either try their hand at something new, or continue building skills in their favorite area. Activity Directors & Specialists oversee the overall operation of their area, including the development and implementation of lesson plans, equipment maintenance, and instruction of their activity including all necessary safety procedures. The Sailing Director is typically supported by an individual in the role of Sailing Maintenance to aid with equipment and boat management.

Activity leaders are expected to arrive to camp a bit earlier than other staff to complete program-specific training, help with projects to open camp (including their activity areas), and collaborate with other program staff to prepare for the season.

  • We expect our Sailing Director to arrive in late May and depart mid-August.
  • 21+ preferred
  • Women preferred, however, men with exceptional qualifications and able to thrive in a women-centered environment will be considered.
