Summer Staff Positions in the Adirondacks at Great Camp Santanoni, Adirondack Architectural Heritage
SUMMER STAFF POSITIONS IN THE ADIRONDACKS  at Great Camp Santanoni 

We at Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) are pleased to announce that three summer staff positions are available at Great Camp Santanoni in 2020. Camp Santanoni is a National Historic Landmark, located in the Adirondack Forest Preserve and in the Essex County town of Newcomb. AARCH manages Camp Santanoni in cooperation with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and with significant support from the Town of Newcomb.  

Three staff positions are available this summer at Camp Santanoni and typically the three staff share the responsibilities described below. At Santanoni's Main Camp staff will be primarily responsible for meeting and greeting the hiking public who visit Santanoni, interpreting the camp to visitors, and participating in the ongoing restoration work there. In 2020, the primary project is the ongoing restoration the exterior of the Main Lodge and several farm buildings and this will include staining and painting, reglazing windows, and undertaking other discrete conservation projects. The staff will also be responsible for interpreting the farm to visitors, operating the Gate Lodge as a small visitor's center, and developing future programs and exhibits and support for Camp Santanoni through the Friends of Camp Santanoni.  Other special projects for the summer may include training and supervising small groups of volunteers.  

Employment dates are June 5-September 7, 2020, though we have some flexibility on these dates.  The Camp Santanoni staff will be expected to work approximately 40 hours per week over a six-day workweek. A $3000 stipend and housing will be provided.   Applicants should be in an historic preservation, history, environmental studies or related field, enjoy the outdoors, be motivated and independent and work well with the public. Contact AARCH for further information, if desired. Some additional information about Camp Santanoni and AARCH is available at www.aarch.org

other prominent guests.  After being acquired by New York State in 1972 and added to the Adirondack Forest Preserve, Santanoni sat vacant and neglected for more than twenty years with an uncertain fate.  In 2000, New York State fully committed itself to preserve Camp Santanoni and use it for public educational and recreational purposes.  Since then, more than $2 million in conservation work has been completed and Santanoni is visited by thousands of people each year.
