Medomak Family Camp

Arts and Crafts Instructor

Washington, ME
  • Responsibilities

    Medomak Camp of Washington, Maine is the nation’s premier summer camp for the entire family. Moms, dads and kids all join in on traditional camp activities like archery, arts & crafts, tennis, basketball, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, swimming, nature, and camp crafts.

    If you have a love for the arts as well as the outdoors, you can probably think back to a special time or place during your childhood when that love began to blossom. You may also remember the person who inspired you to start exploring these passions. Maybe it was a teacher, parent, grandparent, or friend. Whoever it was, they played a major role in how you value your talent and the outdoors today.

    You could be that somebody in a child's life. All it takes is enthusiasm and a willingness to connect with our campers. The important thing is to pass on your creativity in art and your love for the outdoors so that they may also incorporate and enjoy both.

    Sound interesting? Have some creative ideas you would like to add? If you are looking for a fun summer job, an intimate and personal work setting where you get to be an active participant in the camp community, and gain valuable experience instructing kids and adults in the special skills that you have, then Medomak Camp for Families might be the right place for you.

    We are looking for motivated, outgoing, adventurous, team-players that understand the flexibility and enthusiasm needed for any camp community. We hire counselors to teach activities to our campers and to take active roles in all areas of camp life.

    Family Camp is a little different from your typical residential summer camp.

    At family camp, kids come with their parents, so there is no need for counselors to bunk with the campers. Counselors live with each other and therefore have a little extra space and privacy than most camps offer.

  • Qualifications

    Specifically we are looking for a creative Arts & Crafts Counselor who is interested in working with natural materials found at camp. Check out our Pinterest page (Medomak Camp Arts and Crafts Ideas) for examples of past projects and to get a sense of the style of projects we are looking for. If these are up your alley, you are the right candidate.
