Information about the position

Job description, responsibilities and duties

We are Bator Tabor (Camp of Courage), a regional Central European nonprofit organization, serving thousands of seriously ill children since 2001. In 2019, we reached 2200 children with our free recreational therapy programs in Slovakia, Poland, Czech and Hungary. We are based in Budapest, Hungary, and we are looking for an energetic, whole-hearted, hands-on Program Specialist to oversee and implement our programs in Slovakia.

Our campers referred to Bátor Tábor as a “parallel, nicer world”, “dream come true” or a “place where miracles happen”. We are a proud member of SeriousFun Children's Network and we offer much more than just a few days off the daily illness-fighting routine in hospitals.

Serious illness often isolates the child from their friends, disrupts the usual family life and damages the carefree childhood with fear and loss of self-confidence. Bátor Tábor is here to provide healing experiences that result in a long-lasting positive boost on a child's self-evaluation, confidence, inner strength and courage to keep going and to keep fighting. All that packaged in fun camps and hospital workshops in a medically safe environment where everything is possible and no disease impedes a child from living their best life and have tons of laughter. Will you join us in our mission?
