Full Time Positions

Acting Director, The Claggett Center

The Claggett Center is a camp and conference center ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland that offers hospitality and programs for all ages, both within the membership of the diocese and beyond. Situated on 268 scenic acres overlooking Sugarloaf Mountain near the city of Frederick, Maryland, the Claggett Center is just an hour’s drive from Baltimore and Washington and offers accommodations for day use, overnight retreats, and meetings for groups of 15-150. Claggett's lodging capabilities, including a historic dormitory building and several guest cottages, increased greatly in 2015 with the opening of the Christiane Inn.  The Board of Directors seeks an Acting Director to oversee a transitional period of one year to eighteen months, with the possibility of the position becoming permanent if such an arrangement is mutually agreeable at the end of that time. The Acting Director will implement the vision and mission of the center as manager of all staff and representative of Claggett to the Diocese of Maryland and the community at large.
