Job Description
Charles River Sailing Academy LLC is a summer sailing camp for kids aged 11-16, that is run out of the MIT Sailing Pavilion in Cambridge, MA. The program uses Tech Dinghies and 420s. Program dates: June 17-August 23, 2019. July 4th week is off; week of July 29-Aug 2 is also off. There are 8 weeks in total. The standard work day is 8:30am-4:30pm; camp runs 9am-4pm. Additionally, there are two fridays off (July 19 and August 16). Also -- weekends off!

Working at Charles River Sailing Academy.

Our goal is to create lifelong sailors out of each of our summer campers. We are seeking highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals with a strong background in leadership, teaching, and sailing skills. Instructors are responsible for leading campers in engaging activities that help develop self-confidence, self-esteem and provide an overall fantastic summer camp experience. Staff will be responsible for ensuring the health and safety of all camp participants, and facilitate groups and individuals in a manner that is consistent with the mission and philosophy of CRSA. CRSA believes that summer sailing should be fun and challenging and we want to empower our campers with confidence and freedom that the sport of sailing can provide.

Positions Available:

Full-time positions (40 hrs/wk) are available from June 18 – August 24. We would consider partial summer employment for qualified candidates.

Head Instructor (beginner):

Learning to sail can be intimidating and scary for many kids. The ideal candidate is empathetic to this fact, but will also promote a positive and safe environment where campers will quickly gain confidence and develop a love for being on the water. Our goal is to get our campers sailing quickly -- most campers will be proficient sailors (sailing close hauled, tacking/gybing) in 10 knots of wind by the third day of camp.

Head Instructor (intermediate/learn to race):

The ideal candidate should have experience sailing at the collegiate level. The goal of the program is to develop intermediate sailing skills in 420s and introduce some basic racing skills.
