The Old Mission Athletic Association (OMAA) seeks one to two fun, energetic counselors to teach school-aged children tennis and/or swimming, as well as to conduct outdoor games, picnics, and other group beach and forest activities, during its summer program. The OMAA program is operated by families from 30 cottages located on scenic Old Mission Bay, north of Traverse City, Michigan. OMAA has employed counselors for over 70 summers and is committed to encouraging a love for the outdoors and respect for our environment. This quiet bay and tight-knit community is a refuge from the bustle of regular life: a safe place to ride bikes, explore the forest, play games, walk to the country store for an ice cream cone, learn to sail, waterski, swim, play tennis, have campfires, etc.
OMAA's 2020 summer program will run for 5 weeks, beginning July 5, 2020. The program is informal and fluctuates in size (between 10-30 kids per week), with the counselor at the center of it all. The counselor(s) will lead daily tennis lessons and/or swimming lessons, coordinate games and other activities, and be a friend, role model, and mentor to the kids. The ideal tennis candidate has played high school and/or college tennis, has experience teaching and is First Aid/CPR certified. The ideal swimming candidate must have a Lifeguard or Water Safety Instructor (WSI) certificate, as well as First Aid/CPR certification, for teaching swimming lessons in Lake Michigan. Must love working with children ages 5-15 and be comfortable managing groups of kids, as well as interacting with families.
The primary counselor will be compensated for working 40 hours a week (Monday through Saturday morning). An assistant counselor, if hired, will be compensated for 20 hours per week. On-site housing and meals may be provided, but are subject to negotiation. Submit qualifications (tennis, swimming, coaching, summer camps, working with children, certifications) by Feb 20, 2020.
