Posted on 04/14/2022
Are you looking for a fun place to work this summer? The Village of Pleasant Prairie Recreation Department at RecPlex has you covered. RecPlex is America's largest municipal-owned recreation facility, located on the shores of Lake Andrea in Prairie Springs Park. The Recreation Department is committed to enhancing the quality of life through fitness and activities that provide athletic support, guidance, care, and education to guests. The Recreation Department has a variety of professional opportunities available in Aquatics, Concessions, Member Services, Therapeutic Rec, and Youth. 

Working for the Village Recreation Department is not the same as working for a local gym. Positions at RecPlex provide access to a fitness center that includes ice rinks, pools, inside courts, outdoor playing fields, and various fitness programs. In addition, staff often experience career growth through on-the-job training. Kacie Cecchi, RecPlex Athletics and Recreation Supervisor, stated, "I like working at the RecPlex because of all the different opportunities here. I started as a Guest Services Administrator, and now I am the Athletics Supervisor. It's refreshing to come to a job where you are friends with your co-workers, and you know your voice is heard to improve the organization."

The Recreation Department has improved the pay structure by increasing wages for specific positions and developing new incentive programs. There is currently a working bonus for summer camp positions that provides up to an additional $1,200 for hours worked between June and August 2022. Ian Chatman, a previous RecPlex camp counselor, explained, "The work was extremely rewarding and has prepared me for my career in education. If you love working with children and want an experience that will look great on your resume, I highly recommend applying for a camp counselor position."

Outside of youth programs, there are many exciting opportunities at RecPlex. For those involved in or pursuing professional sports, the recreational facility can provide a path to future careers in fitness management, sports training, coaching, and more. RecPlex Staff gain techniques that help prepare athletes for competition and have the opportunity to assist youth gain interest, knowledge, and skills in health, fitness, and sports.
