Timbertop Camp Program Coordinator | Rindge, NH
Timbertop Camp at Hampshire Country School
is hiring a Program Coordinator to be a summer logistics mastermind on our leadership team for summer 2023!
The four-week session runs the month of July (one arrival day, one departure day) on our school campus and out of our modern, home-style dormitories. Mornings start with physical activity around our 2,000-acre property and farm. Once we get our blood pumping we transition into an hour and a half of art, outdoor skills, sports, and games. Lunch is followed by a rest time, and the afternoon is capped by a long beach session and free-choice block. Evenings are a time for community activities, whole-campus games, and small moments of wonder and joy. Bedtimes start at 9 pm for our youngest boys and range until 9:45 for our oldest. Occasionally, our normal programming is “interrupted” by special events and community stewardship projects.
Timbertop camp is also developing an exciting roster of summer trips! So, pack your lunches and grab your trusty water bottle and camp t-shirt because Timbertop camp goes places and does things! Journeys to Boston attractions, the local and beautiful Mt. Monadnock, and Ice Cream adventures are just a few of the adventures we may take with our wonderful campers.

About Hampshire Country School
Inspiring excitement for learning, living and playing, the school promotes growth in academics as well as social, behavioral, and emotional intelligence. The campus, 1700 acres of New Hampshire farmland and woods, provides for the intentional integration of structured academic classes and experiential activities to nurture the bright, active and curious side of each boy. Hampshire Country School has experience and success with boys who have been diagnosed ASD, NLD, ADHD and similar diagnoses.
Since 1948, Hampshire Country School has been a unique and special place. It has been a haven for parents whose children needed someone to believe in them and to notice their strengths rather than their difficulties. It has been a school where students have come to believe in themselves, have accomplished more than they thought possible, and have made life-long attachments after thinking that friends were just something other people had.
Hampshire Country School is a place for boys with high intellectual potential that has not been realized and with idiosyncrasies that may have become major problems in traditional settings. The school provides an unusual environment in which those problems are no longer as significant — not because they have been “fixed,” but because the school’s focus is on the bright, active, engaged, and engaging side of each child rather than on his quirks or limitations.
