We are looking for exceptional people who are interested in working in an outdoor setting with children and adults who have vision loss and blindness, by serving as a Camp Staff for Highbrook Lodge.
Applicants should be compassionate and empathetic; interested in being apart of a special community; and invested in making a difference in the lives of others.
As a member of our team, you will be instrumental in ensuring that the 200 campers who visit camp each summer are having a safe and enjoyable experience at Highbrook Lodge.
Throughout the summer, we offer multiple sessions for campers, depending on their age, needs, and interests. These sessions include day trips; weekend trips; wilderness trips; week-long programs; family programs; and more. Many of our campers also have other special needs in addition to their vision loss and blindness, too. Because of the population we serve,
there are many ways in which we work to adapt traditional camp activities (like canoeing, outdoor camping, archery, etc.) to ensure that all of our campers have a safe, interesting, and memorable experience at Highbrook. This is truly a rewarding job that takes a lot of energy, creativity, flexibility, and patience.
About Highbrook Lodge:
Highbrook Lodge has been providing a quality summer camp experience for individuals with vision loss and blindness for 90 years.
We aim to assist our campers, aged 0 to 99, with their vision rehab process while providing a fun and safe outdoor environment. During each session, campers participate in adapted, structured programs tailored to meet their specific needs and interests. Camp is a close-knit community where everyone is accepted. It is a place where independence and self-sufficiency are encouraged, as well as friendships, play, and new experiences.
Our camp is located on a 60+ acre property in Chardon, Ohio -- close to Lake Erie and Cleveland. Highbrook Lodge has accessible facilities; a heated swimming pool; countless trails and sports fields; comfortable sleeping arrangements; and even an outdoor bowling lane!
