Additional Information

Camp Farley is a non-smoking and drug free environment offering a family oriented workplace that is casual, upbeat, and flexible. We strive for quality workmanship, great customer service, and being a supportive member of the community. General Overview Camp Farley, established in 1934, is a private, not-for-profit organization owned and operated by the Cape Cod Camp Corporation. Its board of directors represent volunteers who derive no personal benefit from their association. Collectively they oversee and govern an executive director who handles all aspects of day to day management including administration, finances, personnel, fund raising, capital improvements and maintenance, and program development. The organization, with an annual operating budget of about 500 K, benefits from some volunteer help and donations but does not receive any government or outside funding. Camp Farley’s primary mission is the development and operation of a co-ed children’s day and overnight summer camp, but other services include rental groups during spring and fall. For further details about our program and organization, visit www.campfarley.com. The organization’s year-round staff consist of an Executive Director (full time) and Facility Manager (part-time). It also employs a part-time Caretaker residing on the premises year-round. Camp hires about 40 seasonal staff including a summer camp director, program staff, food service staff, camp nurse, behavioral specialist, and support staff. Camp Farley’s primary efforts are focused on its camp program, which represents the most important and intensive aspect of its operation. The camp program requires a variety of state and local licenses to operate, and is accredited by the American Camp Association. Our camper population can generally be described as Amiddle-class@ and reflective of the nature and diversity of the local community. The overnight camp program (Sun. afternoon to Friday evening) accommodates about 110 children between the ages 8 to 15, and a day camp (Monday thru Friday) program accommodates about 70 children, ages 6 to 12. Applications will be accepted until Oct. 7, 2017. Applicants should submit resume and cover letter indicating salary requirements or needs. No phone calls please.
