Come play by the bay!
Children's Beach House seeks an Aquatics Director for our 2018 summer. At CBH, we spend a lot of time playing, laughing, and learning, and yes--we are ON THE BEACH! Specifically, that's Lewes Beach--we are situated just feet away from Lewes Bay, and take advantage of our location to swim, fish, sail, kayak, corcl, SUP, and skimboard along the Bay, AND hang out in our pool (not all at the same time!).
Our camp is a part of our year-round Youth Development Program, which serves children with special needs through 5-day sessions in the summer, weekend camps through the school year, as well as case management all year long. Our campers stay with us from the time they enter the program (between ages 7 and 12) until they turn 18, and with only 32 kids on site at a time, we are quite a tight-knit family!
The Aquatics Director position oversees activities on both water areas (pool and bay), including lesson planning, safety monitoring, and leading lifeguarding in-services. When not on the water, this person assists the Camp Director in all aspects of the daily running of camp.
