Job Description:

Camp Friendship is a traditional overnight summer camp in Virginia. With over 35 activities available for kids to choose, we are in need of summer fencing instructors/camp counselors to lead our daily fencing activities for ages 7-16.

Summer salary is dependent on age. All fencing equipment, room and board are provided.
For local instructors, working as a part-time instructor may be a possibility.


Teach 1-2 fencing classes per day for 9 weeks of the summer.
(Fencing activities are offered based on camper interest, so the ideal candidate would be an all-rounder with a number of skills to offer in addition to fencing.)

Depending on their age, camp counselors might stay in our camp cabins with campers and instruct other activities based on their skills and interests.  Must be willing to commit to an on-site position from June to August.


Experience teaching fencing to children is a plus.
