Aside from the very limited time-off, Mayhew is very much a FULL-TIME job. We wake up at 7:30 am and we’re pretty much on-duty non-stop until the boys are in bed at 9:30 pm. Counselors should come to Mayhew because they’re eager to contribute their time and energy to making the Island community as positive and supportive a place as it can be for the boys of the program.
Our ten-week program runs from June 8th - August 13th, 2019.

Cabin Counselors are responsible for leading the boys through the daily Island routine. This role is restricted to our male staff. The best analogy for this job is that of the stay-at-home parent. Usually, each cabin group will have two counselors, with one staff member leaving the group during the day to facilitate an activity (athletics, swimming, etc.) and the Cabin Counselor staying with the boys to lead them from activity to activity.View Job Description

Former campers of Mayhew can apply to work in the camp’s kitchen as a summer job (ages range 14-17). The Kitchen Manager works with those young adults. While primarily responsible for the food aspect, the kitchen manager plays a role in making sure the kitchen staff members stay on task, are being safe, and that meals are being run smoothly. The kitchen manager debriefs with the staff after each meal, and spends time with them during downtime. Much of the job is teaching these young men how to be young professionals. An interest and comfort working with teenagers is needed. Former kitchen experience is ideal.View Job Description

The trips most commonly offered are canoeing, backpacking, and mountain biking. Outdoor trip experience is preferred, but not required. Applicants must be 21 years or older with a clean driving record.View Job Description
