What does a sailing and boating instructor do at summer camp?
Set sail and spend your summer cruising on the lake or in the ocean, being on the boating staff is an incredible way to spend your summer. As a sailing and boating instructor, you’ll be instructing a range of water-based activities, developing skills and increasing campers confidence on the water. Capable of sailing a training boat in strong winds and handling small powerboats, boating instructors work closely with the lifeguards and at many smaller camps may even be involved in lifeguarding duties if qualified.
Having an eagerness to get on board is essential for a sailing job as, at the majority of camps, you’ll be responsible for the maintenance of the docking area, boathouse and boating equipment.
As a sailing and boating instructor, you can expect to be working with all ages and abilities. Everyone wants to be on the water.
Why should I teach hiking and trip leading at camp?
If you love to be on the water, sunshine on your back as you ride the waves – then this is exactly where you should be at summer camp.
It’s all about the level of enthusiasm and your want to go the extra mile. Camp Directors will be looking for dedicated and knowledgeable staff for the waterfront. It’s a fun and exuberant part of camp.
