DPR Accepting Applications for Summer 2016 Employment

Posted on: February 21st, 2016 by Anastasia Miller

From DC DPR:

DC’s Department of Parks and Recreation Human Resources Division is currently accepting applications for Summer 2016 jobs. DPR strives to provide high quality recreational programming and is looking for talented individuals to join their team in the following positions:

  • Summer Aquatics staff will have the opportunity to be pool managers, assistant pool managers, lifeguards, customer service representatives, and more.
  • Summer Camp staff will have the opportunity to be facilitators, assistant facilitators, counselors, activity specialists, and more.
  • Summer Support Services staff will have the opportunity to be materials handlers and motor vehicle operators.

These positions are covered under D.C. Law 15-353, the Child and Youth, Safety and Health Omnibus Amendment Act of 2004, effective April 13, 2005, as amended. For that reason, all selected candidates for hire will be subject to criminal background checks, traffic record checks, or both, and pre-employment drug and alcohol screening.

For the 2016 summer season, DPR will launch a new application system. For each job type (ie. REC Camp, Little Explorers Camp, Aquatics, etc.) interested applicants should click on that position’s application link. Within that link, you can apply for the various positions offered within that camp or division.

Please visit DPR Summer Jobs on DCHR to go directly to a listing of DPR summer job applications only; or visit the 2016 Positions Description page for a comprehensive list of positions, titles, qualifications, pay rates, and descriptions.

Please note:

  • There is no longer one general link for all DPR summer positions. Applicants must apply within the specific camp or division of interest. Please note that Aqua Day Camp positions are located under Aquatics and are no longer classified under Camps/Aqua Day Camp.
  • The DPR Summer Hire application is not the same as the Summer Youth Employment Program application nor is it applicable to DPR’s full-time employment opportunities.
