Summer Camp Counselor

Smithfield, ME
  • Responsibilities

    As a third-year summer camp, Camp Somerset for Girls presents a unique job opportunity for creative and spirited individuals who want to be part of building a summer camp culture and community from the ground up. We seek independent thinkers who are self-starters looking for more than just a summer job but an actual seat at the table.

    We believe that summer camp should be the most special time of year for children and it is our responsibility to make sure that every young girl feels empowered, encouraged, and inspired to be her very best self.

    Cabin counselors live with a particular bunk and age group and also spend part of their day at an activity area of expertise. Counselors are expected to be role models who must be fun-loving, creative, patient, and genuinely concerned for the welfare and development of the campers.

    Counselors will work with 2-3 other counselors in their cabin and receive 5 days off during the summer.
