Camp Green Cove is a traditional, but unique summer program for girls age 6 to 17. Located in the Mountains of Western North Carolina, we emphasize outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, mountain biking, rock climbing, and horseback riding. We believe in fun, adventure, safety, and great instruction.
Our riding program includes 40 school horses, 4 rings, several fields set up for classes and trails.
We are looking to hire cabin counselors/riding instructors.
We are also set up to take internships. Your responsibilities will include (but aren’t limited to!) instructing small group lessons, help plan and supervise special barn events, participate and lead (if qualified) riding overnights, and perform the duties required of a cabin counselor.
We are looking for skilled riders/instructors who enjoy working with girls ages 6-17.
