Summer Camp Barn Staff

Camp Juliette Low - Cloudland, GA4.8

Temporary

Join the barn staff at Camp Juliette Low, a small overnight camp for girls, located in northwest Georgia. This position is full-time, seasonal: May 28-July 27, 2019. Partial summer positions also available: June 9-July 28 and June 30-July 28.

QUALIFICATIONS:

Qualified applicants are women aged 18 or older, with knowledge of basic tacking & riding skills and experience with instruction and care of horses. Background check required.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Work on a team of four staff members (one horseback director and three assistants) to share the responsibility of caring for and feeding about 12 horses
  • Teach horse care and basic riding skills; supervise trail rides; campers age 7-15; five classes/day
  • Eat lunch and dinner with the campers and attend all-camp evening programs

A majority of our campers are first-time or beginner riders, so advanced riding skills are not as important as positive interaction with campers and being competent in horse care. We are looking for a "team player" who can work closely with three other staff members and contribute to a positive environment for staff and campers.

Camp Juliette Low has a rustic, outdoor setting, and our campers and counselors live in platform tents, so a love for the outdoors is essential! Join our experienced staff this summer -- make friends and make a difference!
