Job Title
Bike Camp Instructor

WashCo BTC

Job Description
WashCo BTC is planning to hold four camps- each 5 days long as follows:July 20-24, 2015 Home base will be in at the fire station on Burnham St. in downtown Tigard.
The following three camps will start on the next three Mondays, with home base at Calvary Lutheran Church on Jackson School Road in Hillsboro. There will be two camps for ages 9-11, and two camps for ages 12-14.

There will be two instructors for each camp of up to 12 youth. We strongly prefer instructors who can teach all 4 camps.

The instructors are expected to plan the activities for each day. We do have a core bike safety curriculum that needs to be taught, but that only takes 6 to 10 hours total. We will also help with a list of suggested destinations or activities for you to choose from.

Instructors will be required to successfully complete our Confidence in Traffic clinic,or show similar competency, as well as have First Aid training and basic bike repair. You will also be required to know the material contained in our Bike Camp Manual and the safety curriculum in the Safe Routes to School manual. We will provide the training and written materials to you. You will be paid for the time spent in the Confidence in Traffic clinic (on-bike portion only), which would take place in the spring. The on-bike portion typically takes 4 hours or so.

The pay for starting instructors would be $10-$12.00/hr., depending on experience. There is some upside potential for income. If a parent wishes to have early drop off or late pick up, they will be required to pre-arrange it with the instructors, and will be charged accordingly. Proceeds will be paid to the instructors.
