Come spend the Summer of a Lifetime in The Berkshires!

Camp Danbee is currently hiring Horseback Riding Instructors to spend their summer instructing our campers in everything from riding, to horse care and barn management and more! You must have extensive knowledge and experience with horses and riding so our campers can receive excellent instruction, and be in a safe environment in the higher risk program area at camp.

As a program instructor, you will help prepare and lead instructional lessons for all levels in your dedicated program area.

Working at camp is an opportunity to develop skills that can be used in a career outside of camp. You will enhance your leadership, collaboration, problem-solving, and communication skills. Camp Danbee has a large leadership team to learn from, from multiple college Head Coaches to experienced professionals across the education, outdoor recreation, and sports industries.
