Job Title: Media & Marketing Assistant
Reports To: Camp Director
Number of Positions Available: 1

The intent of this position is to support the Camp Photographer & Videographer with their daily schedules but also to enhance our social media presence and advertise and market HOC through quality media sources. This role would require someone to work independently but alongside the Camp Photographer and Videographer, with minimal supervision. After creating a marketing plan and schedule for implementation, this person would help to manage the plan and ensure that adequate quality content is captured and pieced together for professional use. 

The daily routine would be to work through a set schedule including posting daily camper photos to Bunk1; updating social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube); and organizing promotional material for summer and off-season marketing purposes. 

This role requires someone with a background in media and marketing, who is able to use their creativity and skill set to enhance HOC's media presence and enforce a strategy to showcase each camp week to our campers, staff, and parents. Candidates must also understand our social media expectations and ensure that the image of HOC is properly being reflected in daily/weekly online posts.
