The Block Island Club is a small, non-profit sailing, tennis, and swimming club tucked in the northeast corner of the Great Salt Pond on Block Island, RI. Block Island is thirteen miles off the coast of Rhode Island. The Club has a long tradition of creating a family-like atmosphere where children and adults can enjoy two-week to summer-long memberships full of sporting and social activities.
The staff of the Block Island Club consists of a manager, four sailing instructions, two tennis instructors, a swimming instructor, an arts and crafts instructor and several multi-task 15 and 16 year old interns. Staff members tend to return year after year, having developed close relationships with other Club staff, residents of the Island and members of the Club. The Board of Governors places a high priority on hiring a staff who are not only qualified to instruct at a highly skilled level, but who can serve as role models for the young children and represent the Club well to the members, both new and returning. In addition, the Board values creativity and independence in its staff with regard to the development and implementation of classes and programs.
