School Year Staff

Do you want to work at the Camp Herrlich School Age Programs?

We have three sites - Kent Elementary on Route 52 in Kent, Matthew Paterson Elementary on South Street in Patterson, and Camp Herrlich at the intersection of 311 and Fair Street in Patterson. The Camp Herrlich site serves children from the George Fischer Middle School.

Hours of Operation for Staff:
Elementary Programs: Before School: 7am - 9am, After School: 2:45pm - 6:00pm.
Middle School Program: After School: 2:00pm - 6:30pm

We are open on half days from school so ideally we like staff to be available for those hours as well. Half days happen about 4-5 times per year.
Elementary Half Day Hours: 11:30am - 6:00pm
Middle School Program: 10:00am - 6:30pm

These programs operate on the Carmel Central School District's school calendar and positions are paid on an hourly rate.

Basic Staff Qualification Requirements:

Assistant: You must have a high school diploma or its' equivalent OR substantial experience working with children under the age of 13.

Head of Group: You must have an Associate's degree in child development, recreation, or a related field OR a high school diploma or its' equivalent and two years direct experience working with children under the age of 13.

These are the positions that we fill most often. We currently have directors and staff for all of our sites but we are always looking for people to put on our Substitute Staff list for the assistant positions. If you are interested in being put on as a substitute list, please fill out the After School Application and submit three references on our reference form from past employers, teachers, etc. No immediate family please!
