Seasonal- Maine- Residential. Assistant Director.
Friends Camp is seeking a new Assistant Director for the summer of 2018. The core purpose of this position is to assist the Camp Director in the overall management and safety of Friends Camp and to act as the primary leadership and responsible individual when the Director is on a day off or away from camp. Friends Camp is a residential camp in South China, Maine founded in Quaker values (serving all kinds of campers and families).
Some experience in a summer camp setting is a must, but we care more about your specific interests, skills, and personality than the number of years you have worked in camping. Skills required include communication with children and families, an ability to see the “big picture” at camp, passion for working with youth from many backgrounds, organization of schedules and large group activities, and desire to coach and assist counselors in their work.
This position is full-time, residential, summer-only position, with competitive compensation for 10 weeks. Ideal for an experienced counselor looking to gain experience in camp management, a teacher looking for meaningful and fun summer work, or anyone who wants to make a difference leading in an intentional summer camp community.
