The Blake School seeks to hire aquatics specialists to instruct and guard swimming lessons at our Acoma summer day camp.
Camp Acoma serves children ages 4 - 13 (or entering pre-kindergarten through seventh grade) from Blake and the larger Twin Cities community. Acoma operates over an eight-week period from June 11 - August 3, 2018. There will be one week of staff training followed by five weeks with campers at the Hopkins campus and two weeks with campers at the Wayzata campus. Camp begins at 8:30 a.m. each day and concludes at 3:30 p.m. with Extended Day wrapping around the program from 7:30 am - 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Afternoon swimming lessons are also available from 3:40 pm - 4:20 pm from June 18 - July 20.
Camp Acoma aquatics specialists must have a current lifeguard certification and are responsible for maintaining a safe, enriching and fun aquatics environment for all campers.
Experience teaching swimming lessons to children ages 4 - 13 and day/recreational camp experience is preferred. Candidates with American Red Cross lifeguarding and water safety instructor (WSI) certifications are desired.
