Here are firsthand counselor accounts of why staff like working at Maine Camps:
“Being a counselor brings the kid out in me and I get to have a blast! It’s really special to be a role model for these girls, as I remember my counselors were such strong role models for me! They shaped my summer and they really shaped who I am today.”
“It blows my mind to see the boys I was counselor for when they were 11 now age 14 and going into high school – it’s incredible to see how much they’ve matured and grown!”
“The connections that you make with your fellow staff and the campers are things you can’t get anywhere else!”
“Now’s the time I should be doing things that I love, and camp is the #1 thing that I love!”
“To be able to spend two months as a counselor in the most beautiful place in the entire world is incredible.”
“It’s important to me to instill in my campers how much you can get out of camp and the surroundings here.”
“I want them to have the experiences I had. I started as a camper and came back as a counselor. I see myself in them.”
*Staff at Maine Camps have typically completed their senior year of high school or beyond.
