Temp/Seasonal Kid’s Counselor
This position is responsible for the daily operation of the Recreation Room and the safety and happiness of our smallest guests. Must have experience and enjoy working with youth. Position works closely with Guest Services to ensure quality guest service. Responsible for all aspects of the Children’s Program, including but not limited to: maintaining a tidy work environment, providing boundaries and safety for children, planning, teaching, coordinating, and carrying out activities and guiding youth throughout their stay.
The ideal candidate is excited about working with children and young adults, and is able to juggle the needs of both these guests with the requests of their parents and the availability of activities on the ranch on a given day. Guests stay for a period of seven days in the summer, and during this time, Counselors are charged with getting to know the children and going on adventures with them. This can be anything from horseback riding to exploring our farm to table program to hiking to fishing to creating crafts with these guests. The children range in age from 6 – 18, and as such, require flexibility on the Counselor’s parts. You will be on a team of 4 others, and so will never be alone in supporting these guests.
While you’re employed at the Home Ranch, get a taste for all that we provide for guests by going on horseback rides, fly fishing on the Elk River, hiking in the Zirkel wilderness, and biking and walking on Home Ranch trails. This is all a part of the benefits of working here – and we encourage you to experience all that you can! You are also provided with housing that is a walking distance away from the ranch, and all of your meals are served by a dedicated cooking staff at the ranch, as well.
This is a seasonal job with the opportunity to come back season after season, and we hope that you do! We do require a background and driving check because of the nature of this type of guest service. Please send your resume, cover letter, application and background check authorization to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 20th to be considered for a summer position!
