KITCHEN DIRECTOR ON A MISSION - CALIFORNIA
Let me tell you a story! It begins in April when our hero (that's you, by the way) walks into the quiet kitchen of a quirky camp called Augusta and a spark ignites. You look past the empty tables and dormant shelves with a grand vision in your mind's eye: campers tucking in to plates piled high with organic veggies, locally-sourced meats, fresh greens from the salad bar and, of course, made-from-scratch desserts. You see an efficient and energized kitchen team, reveling in each other's company while they cook, and cabins of campers smiling with pride at the pizzas they helped create on pizza day. You imagine a healthy, joyful summer, and you know you have what it takes to make this vision a reality. Can you see yourself in this story? Are you a kitchen hero who dreams of nourishing the hearts, minds and bellies of an engaged and playful community? Do you have the skills, the energy and the open-heartedness to lead our team? Do you have what it takes to help write the next chapter of our story? www.campaugusta.org | applications@campaugusta.org | 530-265-3702 | Or add your interest here - http://campaugusta.org/staff/staff-app/staff-interest-form/ - we will get in touch super quickly :)
