Submitting your counsellor application is the first step in becoming a Camp Kennebec staff member. Thank you very much for your interest in working at Camp Kennebec this summer.
Our cabin counsellors, head staff, heads of activities and medical staff are key to making a Kennebec summer successful. Many of our staff members return to Camp year after year. They find a Kennebec summer to be fun and very fulfilling.
As we hope you can appreciate, it takes a special kind of person to work with children, teens and young adults at a summer camp like ours. Our ideal candidates have prior summer camp staff experience or experience working with children and teens with autism, special needs and other challenges. A completed or partial degree or diploma in psychology, social work or education is an asset. Please let us know if you have a certifications like ECE, DSW, OT, CYW or PWC.
