The mission of CCE-NC’s DPF 4‑H Camp is to provide youth with fun, safe, educational and developmentally appropriate camp experiences, both residential (during the summer) and through school and youth-group visits (year-round), under the guidance of positive role models who emphasize community building, positive social interactions, environmental awareness and skill building. The Camp is located in Riverhead, NY on 140 acres bordering the Long Island Sound. The setting is rustic and includes a working farm.

The Camp Specialist will report to the CCE-Nassau office in Jericho or East Meadow at least one day per week (as needed and determined by the CCE-Nassau Executive Director).
When the residential camp is not in session, during September through May, the Camp Specialist will split his or her time between the Jericho or East Meadow office and the Camp.
The Camp Specialist will be responsible for administrative and programmatic leadership, including overall operation of the camp program; budget development and monitoring; development and implementation of marketing plans that successfully reach enrollment targets to ensure fiscal viability; risk management and compliance with all health and safety regulations; and enhancing utilization of the camp year-round. He or she also will assist with developing direction and priorities with input from program advisory committees, program participants, Cornell Cooperative Extension staff, and Cornell faculty.
The person selected for this position also will maintain direct linkages with Cornell faculty and program units and county extension staff, as well as maintain and enhance relationships with appropriate agencies such as the Department of Health, county Parks, NYS DEC, Nassau County schools and other organizations and groups on a local, regional and statewide basis in the area of youth development.
