About the Ravine Club
The Ravine Club or Ravine Swim Club is in Ewing Township, New Jersey, adjacent to the NJ State Police barracks and near the Delaware River, nestled in 10+ wooded acres. Ravine was first established as a private swim club in 1957 and today operates as a swim club from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The club also hosts year-round social club functions at the club’s pavilion and grilling patio. Ravine currently consists of 120 members, mostly families, but also single adults and couples of all ages. As a club we value a fun and “family” atmosphere where safety is always our top priority. Equally important is the staffs’ ability to deliver a safe experience in a courteous and respectful manner. Throughout the summer, the club hosts multiple club sponsored social functions (i.e., happy hour, grill nite), hosts youth events (i.e., teen nite, movie nite) and accommodates pavilion rentals by members.
Our facilities consist of a club office with a first aid room, bathroom and showers, a pumphouse with a deck above, a 25-yard “L” shaped pool, a children’s pool, snack bar, and 2+ acres of recreation space. Most of our property remains undeveloped land. The club also supports youth swim and dive teams. The Ravine Board manages the club and is committed to providing all resources necessary to ensure that the pool manager, and their staff, have everything they need to provide a fun, friendly and safe experience for the membership.
This is a seasonal position, but it does require time for pre-season planning and staff recruitment which can take place off club property.
