The Town of Oyster Bay is seeking Activities Specialists for its Group Activities Program (GAP) Summer Day Camp, Oyster Bay Town Councilman Louis B. Imbroto announced.
The Town has openings at its camp at Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, which will be held from July 5, 2017 through August 11, 2017 between the hours of 9:45 a.m. and 3:15 p.m.
“The six week program is extremely rewarding and entails working with special needs children and adults between the ages of 5 and 21,” Councilman Imbroto said. “The job is ideal for educators who are off for the summer. It is also a great opportunity for young people seeking to build up their resume.”
Councilman Imbroto said applicants will take a leadership role with running the various activities. They must have a Bachelor’s Degree and have completed 1600 hours working with special needs children and adults.
“Our TOB GAP Summer Day Camp is one of the finest programs of its kind in the country and working with the special needs community is truly fulfilling,” Councilman Imbroto said.
The GAP Program, which is administered through the Handicapped Services Division of the Town’s Department of Community and Youth Services, provides a unique social-recreational experience for developmentally disabled town residents in a well supervised setting. The focus of the GAP program is group interaction.
“If you are interested in this great employment opportunity, please contact Program Director Mary E. Hurst at (516) 797-7948,” Councilman Imbroto said. “You are sure to get tremendous satisfaction bringing joy to the program’s participants and being a part of our great team.
