We are a Delaware-based 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that fulfills founder Lydia Chichester du Pont’s vision to help children with special needs reach their highest potential, and benefit from the same healing qualities that she had derived from the coastal environment. (Camp is ON the beach at Delaware Bay!) Our campers are all Delaware residents with financial need and various communicative disorders—barriers related to speech, hearing, auditory processing, and some mild orthopedic needs.
We run residential (overnight) camps during the summer, and during the school year we hold weekend programs for the same campers. Campers and staff arrive Friday afternoon and stay on site until Sunday. Staff responsibilities include leading and running activities, supervising campers at meals and at bedtime, and providing additional support to campers and other staff as needed. You must be enthusiastic, flexible, available to stay on site all weekend (specific dates to be discussed at interview), and have a demonstrated experience or interest in working with children. This is a great opportunity for college or grad students, as well as teachers, looking to expand their experience and earn some extra money! Background checks will be performed at time of hire. Staff must be at least 18 and a year out of high school.
