Work Flow/Typical Hours: The Accounting portion of the job will generally lend itself to a typical 40 hour work week. Camp Hosting can require a wide range of hours depending on the groups involved. Especially during times of greatest occupancy at camp and the potential of hosting multiple times in a given month, weeks may exceed 40 hours. Because of this, we encourage a balance in the flow of work over the course of a given year for our salaried staff whose hours may fluctuate above 40 hours a week during peak season. Because we ask for flexibility of longer hours during busy season, we seek to offer flexibility with time off during slower seasons or times when time off can be covered. Camp Magruder seeks to evaluate work based on goals accomplished in addition to hours worked, so long as over the course of the year a reasonable average for hours is met and work goals are reached. The Bookkeeper will work with the Camp Director to establish a work flow that works well for both parties and will have the chance to propose various plans for scheduling. Terms of Service: This is a full-time, year round, exempt, salaried position
