Experience Camps is a nonprofit that transforms the lives of grieving children through summer camp programs and innovative, year-round initiatives. Through compassion, connection, and play, we allow grieving children to embody a life full of hope and possibility. By amplifying their voices, we are creating a more grief-sensitive culture.


As a Regional Program Manager (RPM), you will lead the year-round planning, execution, communication, and relationship management for two of our camp locations. This includes the management of part-time, year-round and seasonal staff for each of those programs. The RPM reports directly to the Senior Program Manager, who oversees all national camp operations and program staff. Experience Camps is seeking candidates with prior camp experience who have an entrepreneurial mindset and the ability and desire to work collaboratively with multiple stakeholders on the logistics, communications and resources needed to operate their camp programs. The ideal candidate is detail-oriented with strong project management experience and is comfortable switching gears from strategic planning to execution.

This dynamic role enables mission-driven professionals to bring initiative, a passion for camp, communication skills, and super-talents in relationship building to a position of regional ownership of our camp programs.
