Spend your summer Coaching Basketball at Camp Towanda!

Camp Towanda is the premier co-ed, 7 week sleep-away camp for children ages 7-17. We offer a well rounded program of activities from sports, to the waterfront, Outdoor Adventure and the Arts.

Camp Towanda is looking for experienced, enthusiastic and diligent Basketball Coaches to teach our campers, both boys and girls, ages 7-17. Our campers have a wide range of experience with Basketball,, from competitive, college bound players, to those campers who are just being introduced to the sport. Additionally, coaches are responsible for coaching our basketball intracamp games and intercamp leagues, including county-wide tournaments with other camps. This is a great opportunity for experienced players and developing coaches to gain coaching and leadership experience with a wide variety of ages and abilities!

Responsibilities include coaching, refereeing, executing lesson plans and coordinating with the Department Head, Program Director and Athletic Director. Specialists help teach groups of 20-40 campers at a time (boys and girls, ages 7-17). There are typically six, 50 minute long activity periods per day. Coaches will be directly involved with the curriculum planning, participant engagement and execution of a successful program related to your sport with various age groups (boys and girls). When you are not instructing in your area of expertise, you will work with the group that you live with, as a General Counselor.

Daily Responsibilities:

Coaches typically also work with the campers as a counselor, living in a cabin with campers and other co-counselors. Working at Camp Towanda as a counselor provides hands-on experience and leadership opportunities, while building skills that hiring managers are looking for, such as flexibility, adaptability, initiative, self-direction, social and cross-cultural skills, productivity, accountability, leadership and responsibility. When you are not at your specialty, you will be with your assigned group of campers as a counselor, ensuring safety, team-building, growth and development in all activities and in life at camp.
