Greetings from Camp Buckskin! We are a traditional overnight summer camp working with children with social skill and academic needs. We are located in the Superior National Forest in Northern Minnesota near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Ely, MN. We've served over 8 000 young people during our past 50 summers.
Since 1959, Camp Buckskin has been serving campers with AD/HD, Learning Disabilities, and Aspersers to help them achieve greater success in their lives.
Will assist our maintenance head, who is responsible for general up keep and improvements to the camp grounds and physical plant. This includes but is not limited to mowing grass, weed whacking, recycle pick-up, trash removal, assisting the Directors when needed, and other maintenance tasks that may arise throughout the summer. There is the opportunity to work with the campers and other staff members during the evening in various recreational activities.
Qualifications: Must be at least 16 years old. Requires some mechanical skills and knowledge (familiar with various hand tools, ability to follow safety guidelines, and follow directions from supervisory personnel). Must be a positive adult role model for our campers with a willingness to work both as part of a team and independently.
We offer compensation + room/board for the summer! Compensation is based on prior experience plus certifications.
