Description of Seasonal Facilitators
Camp Taiwan is seeking highly qualified individuals to join our team of facilitators. Camp Taiwan is an outdoor adventure and educational program nestled in the foothills of the scenic North-Coast of Taiwan. Our experiential-education based programs are as diverse as our 80-acre natural environment; terraced-fields, mountain trails, sub-tropical forests, streams and waterfalls are the backdrop to the programs we offer. Our outdoor education center caters to both international and local communities. Our clients are primarily school groups; summer campers; corporate groups and university groups. Camp Taiwan is unique in that we offer programming primarily in English and cater to both local and international groups and organizations. Our programs vary to suit the needs of our participants; as such, our staffing needs also vary from program to program. Facilitators may play a leading role for a school-based group of students, then be a support facilitator for a corporate group. For this reason we are primarily interested in attracting staff that are professional, experienced, well educated, but also flexible, hard working and interested in fulfilling various job responsibilities.

• Have graduated University or College preferably with a concentration in outdoor education, recreation or education.

What is a PAL?
Peer Adventure Leaders are high school students who are interested in developing leadership skills in a real working environment. PALs apprentice-instruct with regular camp staff to learn and practice the skills necessary to supervise and lead younger children. Our PALs have their own counselor who works directly with them on the leadership curriculum.
