Camp Manager

Job Description and Benefits

The Camp Manager is responsible for the overall delivery of a unique Kings Camps experience, ensuring every child is safe, engages and makes progress, regardless of their ability. Leading and delivering high quality camps to get children and young people active, having fun and learning together.

Managers won’t be in ratio but will be required to manage and lead a team of coaches, motivating each Red Top through training and delivery to actively participate in sessions, prioritise child welfare and work collaboratively with peers. The Camp Managers role requires preparation, arranging team training, planning timetables in advance and completing relevant paperwork.

Currently recruiting for October Half-Term. Call us for details.

About the role

Locations: Over 50 Schools and Universities, covering England, Scotland and Wales

During camp, you will be onsite from the beginning to the end of the day (8am-6pm) to act as the responsible individual, first aiders and the venue point of contact for any quires, complaints and/or onsite visits. You’ll also follow operating procedures and policies, completing relevant paperwork, including risk assessments, weekly reviews, the recording of incidents and managing OFSTED requirements.

Child safety is our number one priority, so Managers need to ensure that the welfare of children is paramount at all times, supervising children during their lunch breaks, overseeing the safe use of equipment and upholding health and safety standards and procedures.

You’ll need to be available between 8am-6pm, Monday to Friday, during the school holidays. We’re looking for Managers to be available for the full duration of shorter seasons, and in the summer (our busiest season) a minimum of 3 consecutive weeks.
