Common Ground Center, VT

Program Director

CGC is seeking a Program Director who has a passion for orchestrating magical moments. As the primary lead for all programs, the Program Director will have their finger on the pulse of all the schedule decisions as well as hiring, training and supervision of seasonal staff. After nearly 30 years of operation, CGC’s family camp has a tried-and-true model for success so the Program Director will leave their mark by slotting in unique and engaging offerings for children and families. Adventure Camp is also a well-oiled machine (with a lot of moving parts) and will require subtle adjustments to bring it to the next level. The Program Director will also supervise the Camp Kaleidoscope Director and work closely with them on details of that program.

Common Ground Center is an organization that has a high season and a slow season. The Program Director will be required to be available for longer hours during July and August but will have an incredible amount of flexibility to make their own schedule between September-March. CGC has developed policies to ensure that those working more hours during the high season are compensated for that short period of higher expectations.
