Kids Camp Site Manager – Job description

About Kings Camps

Kings Camps are a market leading not-for-profit organisation that offer children’s sports and activity day camps in the Easter, summer and half term school holidays

Our Manager’s – part of our Red Top team – lead and deliver high quality camps, getting children and young people active, having fun and learning together.

To become a Kings Camps Site Manager, you’ll need to possess energy, passion, and a commitment to child development that we call The Kings Factor®.

Job Description – Site Manager

Reporting to the Regional Manager, the Site Manager is responsible for the overall delivery of a unique Kings Camp experience, ensuring every child is safe, engaged and makes progress, regardless of their ability.

Site Managers lead whole camp warm ups and deliver end of week events to showcase the skills each child has developed.  Parent interaction will also feature, being front of house and the first point of contact for any queries, complaints and / or site visits.

Managers won’t be in ratio but will be required to manage and lead a team of coaches, motivating each Red Top throughout training and delivery to actively participate in sessions, prioritise child welfare and work collaboratively with peers.  You’ll enter top performers onto our staff development programme, with the aim of securing a future promotion (we actively seek to promote from within!)

The Site Manager role requires preparation, so you’ll need to contact your venue, arrange team training and plan timetables in advance of camp to ensure a smooth delivery. During camp, you’ll be on site from 8am to 6pm to act as the responsible individual, the first aider and the venue point of contact. You’ll also follow operating procedures and policies, completing the relevant paperwork, including risk assessments, weekly reviews, the recording of incidents, and managing OFSTED requirements.

Child safety is our number one priority, so Managers need to ensure that the welfare of children is paramount at all times, supervising children during their lunch breaks, overseeing the safe use of equipment and upholding health and safety standards and procedures.
