Trip Leaders

A group of campers on a hiking trip.

Each summer Glen Brook hires two Trip Leaders (one male and one female).


This program takes groups of campers, ranging from 8 to 13 years of age, on one to four-day trips, both on and off camp property. Activities include canoeing, hiking, and camping.

As a trip leader, you will work with a co-leader and with Glen Brook’s Program Director and Trip Coordinator in creating and organizing expeditions that are appropriate for each age group and ability. You will be responsible for all logistical aspects of the trips from meal planning and preparing, driving, guiding, and facilitating the experiences for the campers. This includes teaching camping and outdoor living skills. You will also be supported by the group’s cabin counselors. Technical and logistical experience is essential, as is passion and experience working with a wide age range of children.

Priority is given to applicants familiar with the mountains and waters of NH and adjacent states.

Dates can be found here.
