Colvig Silver Camps is looking to hire one Range Instructor for the 2017 camp season. This is a new position for us. Our target sports program is popular among the campers and we are looking for a responsible individual that is knowledgeable in all firearms and archery safety, range commands, and equipment cleaning and maintenance to run the program to allow the campers to have more opportunities with these activities. Though we want the campers to learn how to shoot well and have fun at the range, our first priority is that they learn respect for firearms and archery equipment. We want them to be educated on proper gun safety procedures and what it means to be responsible with firearms.

Though we would prefer an experienced candidate, applicants with basic knowledge of firearm and archery safety will be considered as the hired Range Instructor will go through thorough training to run our target sports program.

The Range Instructor is responsible for planning and leading all aspects of our Rifle, Archery, Skeet and Tomahawk programs. This includes an in-camp shooting range, archery range, and field for skeet shooting. The Range Instructor will be required to have current First Aid and CPR Certifications as well as Rifle and Archery certifications.

Campers range in age from 7-17 and arrive with all levels of rifle and archery experience (including none). Archery and rifle instruction begins with safety and theory and progresses from there. Counseling staff will be present at every activity and will be responsible for camper management, allowing the range instructor to focus on leading and instruction. Typically the first activity session with a group of campers will begin with an in-depth discussion of rifle/archery range safety, then basic commands, then shooting. Head and assistant counselors also arrive with varying levels of experience. The Range Instructor is responsible for evaluating and training staff in commands and range safety. In most activities, the range instructor will be focused on developing the camper’s skills as well as safety awareness. The Range Instructor can expect to lead activities every morning and afternoon.

The Range Instructor is also responsible for cleaning and caring for firearms, archery, and tomahawk equipment daily. Upon arrival and throughout the summer the Range Instructor will clean and care for all areas involved in the range program: rifle range, archery range, and skeet field, etc.
