Other Outdoor Summer Camp Wilderness Trip Leader

Sari Hirsch – Posted by sari Anywhere

Job Description

Chippewa Ranch Camp is an all girls residential summer camp located in Eagle River, WI.  We are a traditional overnight camp that has been around for over 70 years.  We are located on a big lake  and offer a wide variety of activities including horseback riding, water skiing, a 50 foot climbing wall with a zipline, a high ropes course, archery, landsports and the arts.  We are a camp that is focused on building friendships, independence and kindness.    Through our wide offering of activities and incredible staff, we are able to help our campers grow into strong, confident and compassionate young women.

We are looking to hire a Wilderness Trip Leader. At Chippewa, we run a trip program in which a trip leader will take between 12 and 20 campers in addition to 3 other counselors on a one to two night camping trip. These trips range from beaches to hiking to canoeing to rock climbing. Campers and counselors will make dinner, set-up and sleep in tents, and build a fire (to make s’mores of course :)). The trip leader will be accountable for helping to plan the trip, guide the campers and counselors once they are on the trip, and help to ensure a fun and safe experience. There will be 2 trip leaders who will work together to plan trips. Trip leaders should have experience camping themselves, and having led trips in the past is great prior experience.  Wilderness First Responder and Lifeguard certifications will be provided if you do not already have the certification. Compensation includes a competitive salary, room, board, travel stipend and certifications.
