Camp Laurel
Job List

Our Jobs

Camp Laurel employs about 250 counselors for the summer. The majority of our staff are considered Activity Counselors, while a smaller number are hired to work as General Counselors with our youngest campers (ages 7-10).

Activity Counselors teach a specific activity (Tennis, Waterskiing, Rock Climbing, etc.) throughout the day. General Counselors work with our youngest campers (ages 7-10), travel to/from their activities and help them in their activities. Activity Counselors and General Counselors share many commonalities. All counselors live in a cabin with campers, eat meals with their campers, spend Rest Hour and Recreation Time with them, supervise cabin clean-ups and participate in evening programs and special day events.

In addition to Counseling Staff, we also hire staff to work in our Summer Office, Health Center (Nurses and Nursing Assistants), on our Food Service Staff and Maintenance Staff.

    Activity Counselors have a dual role at camp. You work in tandem as a cabin counselor and in a specific program area. Activity Counselors and campers in their cabin follow a similar morning routine (i.e. wake-up, breakfast, clean-up). At the end of clean-up, campers go to their first period and counselors report to their specific program area. As an Activity Counselor, you spend the morning in your program area coaching and teaching campers, boys and girls, ages 7-15, who are assigned to the program area. You will meet back with your cabin of campers at meal times and for special events and evening activities. Our Activity Counselors are skilled in a specific area and have the ability to teach, coach and develop campers’ skills in that area. Some areas such as waterfront and adventure have certification requirements such as WSI, LGT, and CPR. Your excitement and ability to have fun and be creative will be critical components to making the program a success. The excitement and energy of our counselors lays the foundation for a popular and successful camp program. Each program area is overseen by a Department Head and Program Area Director who lends their expertise in managing the program, curriculum and staff. Activity Counselors get the "best of both worlds"; they spend the activity day in their program area, getting to know children from all different age groups and teaching an activity for which they have passion, and; they have a group of campers to call their own and to spend time with outside of activities.

  • Camp Counselors

    Maine

    Our general counselors are known as Acadian (female) and Apache (male) specialists. Acadian/Apache Specialists are responsible for the physical, emotional and social well-being of our youngest campers, ages 7-10. Many of these children are away from their parents for the first time. As a "Specialist," you are responsible for traveling to and from activities with your campers, making sure the campers get to where they should be going and have the proper attire and equipment with them. You will be involved at activities. If your campers are swimming, you will get in the water and assist a swim lesson. If they are at Arts & Crafts, you will lend a hand to a camper who needs extra help. You will be responsible for managing issues that arise with your campers at daily activities. You will know your campers better than anyone and they will respond to you when there is an issue. As an Acadian or Apache specialist, you have the opportunity to experience all the different facets of camp. This is the perfect position for anyone who has a passion for working with younger children, is energetic, warm and compassionate and wants an opportunity to get to know many areas of camp.
