Job Description

Since 1793, Lawrence Academy has been fostering and educating young adolescents through self-discovery and risk taking. At Lawrence, learning is driven by interests and experience, and this unique and person-centered way of life does not end when school ends each June. Every summer, our 135-acre campus is opened to children of all ages. Our summer camps are designed to offer unforgettable experiences that grow with our campers. We offer a traditional day camp that provides a great variety of experiences and fun, along with many specialty and sports camps that ignite a flame in a special interest or grow already-developing talents, all in a safe and caring community with exceptional staff who actively engage in every area with our campers.

Archery is one of the most popular activities, and allows campers to learn a fun skill while watching themselves progress daily. Our goals are to teach campers archery skills and safety in a fun setting. Under the Direction of the Day Camp Director, the Archery Specialist will:

  1. Implement an archery program that is appropriate for the age and ability of the campers. 
  2. Ensure that camp staff and campers know and follow safety and educational procedures. 
  3. Assist in the management and care of the physical facilities and equipment for the program. Equipment used includes re-curve bows, rounded-tip arrows, arm guards, and targets. 
  4. Occasional evening hours will be needed during our 4-week overnight camp to run a special archery session for them.
