“Concordia Language Villages’ summer Russian immersion program for kids ages 6-18 is looking for one male counselor for July 10 – August 12, 2018. (Staff and kids are housed by gender, and we have completed staffing for counselors in our girls’ cabins, but one spot remains in the boys’ cabins.) We may also have an opening for a high school credit teacher (any gender), depending on enrollment.
The high school credit teacher position requires some teaching experience, but the counselor position is appropriate for those with abundant energy but little or no teaching experience, as we provide intensive teacher training, a very thorough curriculum, and in-service support.
In general, most successful applicants are usually either native speakers, heritage speakers or L2 speakers who have already spent at least a year in a Russian-speaking country, as this work requires a strong command of informal spoken Russian. Staff members are expected to be able to use Russian to communicate both in staff meetings and with campers in all daily life situations. This is a summer camp experience in cabins in the woods, so prospective staff should enjoy rustic living, physical exertion, and sharing responsibility for maintaining communal spaces.
If anyone has questions, please feel free to share my contact info:firstname.lastname@example.org .”
