We have Summer 2019 positions for coaches/counselors and ranch help – all positions require a love for being outdoors, an affinity for engaging with children and the physical, mental and emotional ability to help us run our summer camp ranch resort in all the things we do.
We are looking for young men and women camp counselors to add to our staff here at Iron Horse Country Ranch, a premier children’s resort and one of the only off-road Motorcycle Training Facilities in the country.
You must be a leader and able to work well with children 8-15 years old and act professionally. The campers look up to you like big brothers and sisters.
You will be trained to ride motorcycles and become a professional instructor for coaching children to ride. All that you must be able to do before official training is to ride a bicycle well. Kids come from all over to experience riding a motorcycle for their first time and we need good energetic counselors/coaches to help out. You must like to play with the kids!
Your job is to help the kids ride and to focus on them to keep them safe. A typical day includes training kids to ride small trail motorcycles , taking videos, playing air hockey or ping pong in the Rec Center or swimming and other typical camp activities at rest breaks.
Our staff is picked from persons with good skills that involve interacting with and managing children and being physically fit (i.e. able to run a mile, good balance and coordination) as well as special individual skills such as photography, bike mechanics or experience with ranch animals and equipment. Don’t be shy! We can teach an energetic person a lot before camp. And, it’s fun! Any safety courses you have taken are a plus such as Life-guard and Red-cross certifications. And, we love Veterans!
We have a lake, trails, tracks and a swimming pool. All the buildings have A/C – we are a very plush ranch camp! Lunch is provided to all staff everyday, at no cost to you. We also provide transportation to and from our site from our Cedar Park bus pick up area, also at no cost. We have motocross tracks for the more advanced riders and advanced teachers for them. Once on our staff, you will get access to all these great things to lead your group of children through each week .
As part of a small camp, your position requires a lot of different duties. You must like the outdoors. It does get hot here in Texas! Camp counselor job duties vary by ability. Some may have mechanical abilities and help with maintenance of the motorcycles, while others help more with food, others for clean up. We ALL take care of the campers. There is a high level of responsibility because of the motorcycles. We have specific training procedures and rules for the children riding to keep a zero tolerance level for accidents. This is why we are looking for leader-like counselors to work with our team .
TO QUALIFY (No Exceptions )
You must be able to work all Summer June 3rd – August 9th, M-F 8-5pm . (The week of July 4th (July 1-5) is an OFF week – no camp/no work.) We have BOTH Day Camp weeks and Overnight Camp weeks. You must be able to stay overnight (sleeping quarters provided) during our Overnight Camp Weeks (1 in June, 2 in July). We start paid training a couple of weeks before for training with select weekend days included.
You must be at least 21 and over 24 a plus (insurance reasons).
You need to be in good shape, a NON-SMOKER, able to jog a mile, have a good driving record and no CRIMINAL RECORD.
You should live about 15 minutes from 183/620 in North Austin – (SOUTH Austin is too far to drive to the shuttle pick up each day.) You may also go directly to the ranch if it is closer to you – Florence, Burnet, Bertram, Marble Falls, Lampasas, Briggs, Georgetown and Liberty Hill are all very close to the ranch.
To be considered for the job, email us your resume. Note any camp experience. We need your resume and a brief paragraph about yourself. Tell us why you think you would be a good fit at our camp. You will have the best summer ever, riding and teaching kids to ride dirt bikes. E-mail us back to start your adventure!
