George School Day Camp Employment
George School Day Camp is an equal opportunity employer. We are looking for individuals who show an interest and ability in working with children and who know how to work as part of a team. Each hired member of the staff must complete the required child abuse clearance and police background checks. All employees under the age of eighteen must have working papers from the school district in which they live.
All employees must follow the guidelines of George School Day Camp as well as the George School campus rules.
Hours of Operation
All staff members are expected to arrive at work by 8:30 a.m. and stay until 4:30 p.m.
Dates of Employment
It is expected that since the day camp is only in operation for eight weeks (thirty-nine working days) each employee will work every day of the camp season. Occasionally, some employees are hired to work for one of the offered sessions (first three weeks or last four weeks). There are up to two mandatory pre-camp training days that everyone must attend. These training sessions are very important and help you learn the expectations associated with your position. There is no additional pay for these training days. Dates and times will be established and included in your employee contracts.
Again, because the camp season is only thirty-nine days long, employees will not be paid for missed days. We ask that you give us the professional courtesy to call in if you are too sick to attend work.
