Job Description
We will pay for your travel to/from New Hampshire, room and board and stipend. Free time you will have access to beach (paddle boards, skiing, tubing, sailing, etc), tennis courts, climbing tower, arts, etc.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT:
We're serious about helping you develop your leadership. In fact when we saw LinkedIn's list of the top skills companies need we did a happy dance! The "top 5 soft skills" listed are exactly the skills we live and practice everyday at CR. We realize most likely you are not working at camp because you are planning to become a professional camp counselor. Our guess is you are wanting to do something fun. It is that. But it is way more than you ever imagined. In our humble opinion CR is one of the best leadership development programs for emerging leaders regardless of major, career path or life goals.

At Robindel, we focus on EQ (Emotional Intelligence). You set your own goals and we provide the guidelines and support so that you can accomplish them. The leadership development we provide is based on 5 Emotional Intelligence skills: empathy, reflection, motivation, self-awareness & social skills.

We can think of no better role models for CR campers than those who strive toward living the best version of themselves every day. CR is a place to practice living your values, putting them in action- it's really up to you. We love to see our people thrive.

ABOUT US:
Robindel create community. For more than 70 years, campers and staff have been spending their summers at Camp Robindel on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee and telling their friends what a difference it has made in their lives. We love creating something that literally changes people's lives.

Robindel (or CR as we are also known) is seasonal, and so we have the opportunity each year to find people who demonstrate extraordinary potential to add to our team. Our CR team comes together each June bringing all the energy, passion and thoughtfulness needed to create a positive environment for ourselves and the campers. We facilitate conflict, engage peers and campers to embrace growth opportunities, and practice living the best version of ourselves each day in order to step into the person we want to be.
