Job Title: Camp Photographer
Reports To: Camp Director
Number of Positions Available: 1


The intent of this position is to enhance the services we offer to our parents by posting daily photo uploads of their children at camp. This role would require someone to work independently in a smaller staff team, with minimal supervision. The daily routine would be to visit all of the activity areas to capture photos of children in action. Routine visits to the arena would also be required to capture hockey related photos.

Other responsibilities would be to capture candid shots at meals, in lineups, around the cabin areas, and during special activities. This role would also require altering photos for uploading to the web multiple times per day. Candidates must have experience using Macintosh computers, and specifically Photoshop applications. Photos are uploaded to an online system for parents to view and order photos. Daily management of this system is required.

This person would work indirectly with children but would need to possess an interest in working with children.

In addition to responsibilities during the day, this role would require evening responsibilities as well. The Camp Photographer would be required to work evening activities, all camp activities, and Friday family nights, capturing and sorting photos for the website.
