Bellingham Job Openings – work with Majestic Adventures
POSITIONS FOR HIRE
Part-time & Full-Time Summer Camp Quest Leaders:
Summer positions are open for part-time employment 30 hours/week (approximately 9:30am-3:30pm), Fridays require working an additional 30-60 minutes at the end of the day (paperwork). We are looking for a couple of new staff to join our merry band of returning staff. Our camps run from mid-June through late August.
Part-time School-Year Quest Leaders:
School year positions (fall/winter/spring) are open for part-time employment 6-15 hours/week Quest Leading in after-school programs. Time would be ~2-5 or 3-6 pm most weekdays. Each after-school program is on a particular day and time for a series of weeks, so you could commit to, for instance, Mondays & Wednesdays from 2-5pm for 8 weeks in a row. Each program will average 3 hours per week, so by working 5 days a week there is the opportunity for roughly 15 hours/week Quest Leading after-school programs. We also run holiday camps on school days off, which offer an opportunity for ~6 hours/day of work on select days through the school year. Amount of work in after-school programs is dependent on whether schools open up after-school programs again next school year.
Part-time Weekend Birthday / Festival Leaders:
Quest Leading with a focus on one-time events such as at birthday parties, festivals, and other specialty programs. If you have what it takes to Quest Lead, with an extra dash of charisma, and you’re free on the weekends, this is for you!
Extra Jobs (stand-alone or add on in addition to Quest Leading to increase hours)
Manage the character sheet database, data entry into the database, admin work, equipment prep and repair, product sales, and supporting staff by watching for safety at sign-in/sign-out and leading active games with children. Ideally (but not required) – attend Quest Leader training and be able to occasionally sub for sick Quest Leaders for an hour or more. Required: vehicle for driving between sites and office.
Starting wages are $14/hour for most of our programs, $16/hour for after-school programs, and $20/hour for birthdays on weekends. Occasionally, higher wages are offered to exceptionally experienced new staff. Raises are given each year.
Thorough training is provided, and new Quest Leaders will be paid a stipend to complete the training process and learn the ins and outs of being a Quest Leader.

We accept applications all year round, but do not begin our hiring process until March. If we need more applicants, we may extend the deadline, but applying sooner is always better.

Auditions are held during April & May.
FINAL INTERVIEW: The applicants who showed the most potential in their applications and audition are invited to a final interview.
STAFF TRAINING: We will thoroughly train you to be able to lead a group of kids of your own. Materials will be provided to begin learning the game. Training takes place during early June, and you will be given an opportunity to “shadow” an experienced quest leader as well as try out Quest Leading with an experienced leader with you to give feedback. New quest leaders will receive a training stipend after successfully completing the training process.
HIRED: All staff must have a social security number for being an employee, and all will have a background check done on them. We require all staff to be mandatory reporters of child abuse (if you suspect abuse in the home environment or elsewhere, you are required to report on it).
