Our rock climbing program needs two people
1 person aged 21 or over with experience teaching climbing in an outdoor setting.

Our high adventure program is a paid backcountry expedition- 4 nights and 5 days out of camp climbing, backpacking, canoeing, and going for the summit of Mokelumne Peak. We need 2 people (1 female) to lead this program.
1 Director over age 21 ready to obtain BSA certification at National Camp School and lead the program for 5 weeks. MUST be experienced in backcountry climbing, paddling, backpacking, etc. Physically demanding.
1 Assistant (18+) very experienced in backcountry climbing, paddling, etc.
Pay is typical summer camp pay- just above minimum wage, but you get paid to climb and backpack.
Time commitment is 8 June through 26 July (high adventure) or 3 August (climbing)
Campers are middle and high school age Boy Scouts from all over northern California and Nevada, sometimes further afield.
