FERNWOOD COVE: Traditional summer camp for girls. Offers two 3 and 1/2 week sessions with approximately 200 campers per session. Staff live in bunks as well as instruct activities. A fun, safe outdoor environment where campers are encouraged to challenge themselves and make responsible decisions. Being a camp counselor is one of the most rewarding jobs you will ever have. We believe that having an excellent staff is the key to providing our campers with a wonderful summer experience. You will be appreciated for your patience and caring for children; your teaching skills, your creativity and your sense of fun and ability to wear many “hats” over the course of the summer. As a counselor you will have an opportunity to share your personality, experience and interests with the camp community. You will also learn a lot about yourself, and make some of the best friends you will ever have. We hope the following information gives you an insight into our camp, and our expectations of summer staff! JOB DESCRIPTION: Counselors teach 4-5 classes in their respective areas per day. Some staff teach in more than one activity area. All are involved with other planned aspects of the day, including flag raising, assemblies, and meals and evening activities, either as participants or leaders. Creativity and willingness to help are always appreciated. Thursdays all campers and staff are divided into groups for our weekly trip day out of camp; biking, hiking, cookouts, canoeing, and other enjoyable outdoor and nature based trips nearby in Maine and New Hampshire. Counselors act as trip leaders and supervisors on trips. LIVING: Most female counselors live in cabins with the campers as their “bunk moms” for the summer. Cabins are spacious wooden bungalows with screened windows, and most have an indoor bathroom and sink area. Cabins house 8-12 campers and at least two counselors. Male staff and some female staff live in nearby staff housing. They are also assigned to a cabin of girls as a bunk “aunt” or “uncle”, having the opportunity to provide support to the bunk counselors and be an active contributing member of the bunk family.
