Director of Camp and Enrichment
This job is no longer accepting applications.
Love where you work! The Waldorf School of Princeton sits on 20 acres of beautifully tended campus, including access to a creek, forest walks, and carefully tended gardens. The campus is within easy reach of the thriving village center of Hopewell and the college town of Princeton. Further afield, New York City, Philadelphia and the Jersey Shore provide endless entertainment at weekends.
An Associate Member of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America, the Waldorf School of Princeton is committed to providing a rich Waldorf education to all its students, from pre-K through 8th grade. In 2021, the school committed to a nine-year plan to build our school into a beacon for the local community, with a team of dedicated, well-supported, excellent educators at its heart. We are excited to welcome new members of our team to help us on this journey.
Joining the Waldorf School of Princeton, you will find yourself among kindred spirits. Our faculty and staff form a supportive group, working together for the children in our care, encouraging one another to do their best work, and extending grace when we struggle.
Teachers who are not familiar with Waldorf education will be supported through the training and professional development needed to deliver our carefully crafted curriculum that meets the developmental needs of each child.
The Waldorf School of Princeton is looking for a Director of Camp and Enrichment. This position starts in April 2022, but may be combined with teaching duties for an immediate start (see our listing for an Activities Teacher)
The responsibilities for the camp grow over the school year and culminate in the summer, with enrichment duties spanning the whole school year. The Director creates programming, hires staff, works on advertising and administrative aspects and is responsible for all aspects of the camp when in operation. Some of this work has already been set into motion for 2022 and there is support from our administrative staff and a school nurse.
This person needs to be familiar with or have a strong interest in Waldorf education and be prepared to work in a way that complements the pedagogy of our school as well as complying with state regulations. Previous camp experience is most important.
This is a part-time position during the school year, and full-time over the summer, with the opportunity to create a year-round full-time position by fulfilling teaching hours within the school year as a specialist subject teacher. Subject area possibilities are in the arts, science, music, movement, and/or nature studies.
If you are a person who wants to share their talents with young children, are able to plan activities for others, have a natural flair for leading a group and have an ability to organize programs, we are very interested in meeting you and exploring a position in our school.
We are particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates with life experiences less well-represented in the independent school sector.
