Equestrian Director / Riding Instructor (Summer Camp!)
Camp Augusta – Nevada City, CA , United States
Camp Augusta’s equestrian program is small, including a herd of 10 horses. We teach a hybrid of English and Western and offer trail rides, horse care, and basic arena work. The goal of the equestrian program is to teach campers not just to ride but to love horses too, and to create an environment where campers can have fun and build self-confidence through the facilitation of horsemanship.
The Equestrian Director leads program development working alongside the Assistant Equestrian Director. In addition to running our program they are responsible for feeding & mucking as well as general herd maintenance. This role benefits from a person with a stable temperament who is able to adapt their experience, teaching style, and philosophies to camp and can provide their insight while being open to collaboration. When not horsing around, EQ staff will participate in camp programs, evening programs, and supply camp magic. Applicants must be 20 or older by June 2021, and have a CHA certification (or ability to acquire) or equivalent group lesson teaching experience (~300 hours). Sometimes, the program is run with two equestrian directors, if the skills are matched/equivalent. Preference for applicants who can return for multiple summers.
About Camp Augusta
Camp Augusta is not your average summer camp. We seek high and low for folks who have a calling in life… to make a genuine difference in the lives of children and their own; to pursue a variety of adventures that feed body, mind, heart, and spirit; to work hard and play hard (especially when they are one and the same).
We are a 90-acre non-profit residential camp nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains of northern California specializing in teaching emotional intelligence, aerial silks, fire spinning, positive communication techniques, high ropes elements, intentional community living, the fine art of oatmeal fights, and oh-so-much more. Camp Augusta has 1 and 2-week overnight sessions with 90 children (ages 8-16) onsite at a time.
