Who we are:
Camp Chewonki is one of Maine’s most prestigious nature-based overnight camp and expedition-based youth leadership program for boys, girls, and non-binary children based on a 400-acre peninsula in mid-coast Maine. Since 1915, Chewonki has been changing the lives of children and staff- including yours! Overnight campers are aged 8-15 and spend 10 days or 3 weeks at camp. The overnight camp program focuses on building cabin community, building social emotional skills and knowledge in a core curriculum (including natural history, farm sciences, watercraft, the arts, and more!) and learning about backcountry travel on multi-day remote cabin trips.
Who you are:
Age Group Coordinators strive to personally know as many campers as possible and work as the primary liaison on the Coordinator Team to manage camper needs in their assigned age groups. There are three Age Group Coordinators per camp and each oversees 4-7 cabins: Puffins are grades 2 & 3, Owls are grades 4 & 5, Heron/Osprey are grades 6, 7 & 8. Age Group Coordinators directly supervise and serve as mentors to Cabin Counselors, providing support for nearly all aspects of their jobs. The Age Group Coordinators are expected to support the growth and development of all staff in attaining their personal best as an educator, caretaker, and employee.
