If any of you guys that want a part time teaching gig you should consider the world of summer camping, many of us are continually looking for qualified woodworking teachers, and summer camps are picking up some of the slack in teaching the arts that are being left behind by the school systems. I'd be happy to consider applications directly or pass contact along. I have contacts up and down the east coast, but there are summer camps all over the country. /
Topic: Summer job running a summer camp woodworking shop

I'm a little taken aback at the idea that the program "exhibits no common courtesy regarding our craft." yes there is not a separate page for woodworking specifically, as it's part of a larger fine arts department, but there are photos of woodworking on the fine arts page, there is video of woodworking in our camp video... but clearly, you're offended by our "scatterbrained approach".

I'd rather characterize the program as comprehensive, we try to offer the widest variety of activities, at the highest levels of any summer camp. We are world famous for our music, theater, and circus programs. Our woodwroking program is not the center of camp, but it is a large, thriving program that deals with more than 100 campers a day, and employs 4 instructors.

I'm looking for a high level instructor to continue the program at the level it has been running for the last few years, how should I phrase that in a way that will not be offensive to prospective instructors such as yourself?

I'm looking for someone to run a full woodworking program at a summer camp. We've been building our woodworking program for the last several years, and I need additional expertise to help run the program. We've got a great open woodworking pavilion, with new Dewalt and Powermatic tools, a ceiling mounted dust collection system, etc... it's a nearly perfect setup, and the prospective candidate can have a say in the layout and equipment we purchase for the future.

The woodworking program is part of a large art department, itself part of a larger performing arts program. Children between 7 and 17 come from all over the world to take part in music, art, theater, dance, circus, sports, skateboard, horseback, magic and traditional summer camp activities. It's a dynamic, interesting environment, in the evenings we have symphony concerts, broadway style shows, rock concerts, magic shows, etc.

We're located in the Catskill mountains of upstate New York near the Pennsylvania Border. We offer room and board, possible tuition assistance for camp-age children, a salary, and travel assistance. I'd really like to find a teacher, professor, or retiree who would be available for multiple summers.

Anyone interested about the program can see our website at

I'd be happy to talk to anyone via email or phone if they want more information, contact info below:

Don't know if this will help or not, but I'm currently looking for a woodworking instructor to teach in a summer camp setting, if you're thinking of getting into teaching, working for a summer camp might give you a sense of what it's like, and the resume point might be helpful looking for a teaching job. Also, since many teachers still have summers off, working with a summer camp can give you an recurring gig to pick up some extra cash.
