2017 Summer Bike Camp Instructor

Company/Organization *
Washington County Bicycle Transportation Coalition

Job Description *
The Washington County Bicycle Transportation Coalition (the BTC) will hold our youth Bike Adventure Camps again next summer, and we are seeking qualified instructors.

We are looking for people who are comfortable riding their bike in traffic, can ride 10-20 miles in a day, and have experience working with youth in these age groups. You and your co-instructor will be responsible for the day to day activities of up to 12 campers, ages 9-11, including teaching a core bike safety curriculum, so you must be self-directed and able to teach in a collaborative setting.

We plan to hold five camps, each 5 days long, for kids age 9-11. We strongly prefer instructors who can teach all 5 camps.

Camps will be held in Hillsboro(2), Tigard, Beaverton and Forest Grove. Camps will be held M-F on five consecutive weeks beginning Monday, July 10 and last camp and ending on August 11th.

The pay for instructors would be $11-$14 hour depending on experience, with some potential for more.

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 Instructors Manual and the safety curriculum in the Safe Routes to School manual. We will provide the training and written materials to you. You will also be required to pass a criminal background check.

Resumes will be reviewed by the committee. Interviews will then be scheduled.
