At Friends Camp, cabin counselors have the biggest role in shaping the camp experience for kids and making it amazing. Counselors are in charge of planning creative programming for campers, and creating community in their cabins, and some counselors are lifeguards as well. We encourage counselors to bring their own interests and talents to the job, so a sense of creativity is important. Activities often include sports, arts and crafts, boating, nature activities, roleplay games like Dungeons and Dragons, and games of your own invention — the wackier the better!

Friends Camp is a Quaker overnight camp located in central Maine. Counselors must be at least 19 years old and have some experience with kids. The summer of 2024 goes from June 14th to August 17th, including one week of staff training and 8 weeks of camp. The summer is split into four two-week sessions: the first session with kids ages 7-12, the second with ages 10-13, and the final two sessions with ages 13-17. Counselors live in cabins with between 6 and 10 campers each session, and almost always with a co-counselor. We offer boys, girls, and gender-expansive cabins, but we do not divide campers by gender in other areas at camp. We are a Quaker camp, but we welcome and value people of all religious and spiritual identities, including atheists and agnostics, and we do not proselytize.
