    Our one of a kind Adventure Sailing Program takes place at Camp Chingachgook YMCA, one of the premier tripping centers of the Northeast, in the heart of the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. We are ~4 hours from Boston or NYC and are located right on the crystal-clear waters of Lake George.

    Our Adventure Sailing Trip Leaders work with coed groups of usually 10 teens and a co-leader for sailing trips on Lake George. Trips last approximately one week each and leaders will lead day trips from camp during weeks in between trips. Our overnight adventure trips camp on the islands of Lake George at night and spend the days sailing the beautiful waters of the Lake while the campers hone their sailing skill. Our trip leaders work to help the teens build character, learn outdoor skills, gain an appreciation for the natural world, and develop teamwork and leadership skills. This is a huge program, offering trips to both our own teens and a dozen other organizations that use us as their outfitter. Our 24' Rainbows serve as excellent teaching and tripping boats, providing great stability as well as responsiveness. Skippers qualified to lead other outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, biking, rock climbing, and more may also have the option to guide other 1 and 2-week long trips taking place throughout New York, New England, and neighboring states.

    Benefits include salary up to $3,000, depending on experience and certifications for up to 10 weeks including training, certifications, room & board for the season, and opportunities for continued fall employment.

  11. Trip Leaders are responsible for assisting in planning, facilitating, and documenting each adventure and managing all logistics of program delivery while out on the trail. For non-sailing trips, this may include driving 8-passenger vans with trailers and working with additional local outfitters.
  12. Qualifications include sailing experience, proven ability to lead others in the outdoors and exercise sound judgment, a minimum age of 21, a desire to work with youth and teens, and current valid life guarding and wilderness first aid certifications (training provided at no cost for these certifications).
  13. Salary ranges from $2,600 to $3,000 depending on experience and certifications.  Benefits include free training, and housing and meals for the duration of employment.
  14. Must be available from June 13th to August 22nd.
