Wavus Camp for Girls is looking to hire about 60 young women for its staff. In line with the Kieve motto, "to strive in emulation of", Wavus looks for applicants who will be positive role models for our campers and who will bring to the camp energy, a sense of adventure, and a willingness to do whatever is necessary to help each member of the community have the best possible experience. Wilderness tripping experience and prior mentoring experience are beneficial but not required. Responsibilities may include supervising a cabin, overseeing one of a number of recreational activities, covering organized swim periods, and assisting with evening activities.
Applicants must have completed their Freshman year of college. Compensation is negotiable, and dependent upon age and experience. Benefits include room and board, laundry facilities, a staff recreational area, and computer and Internet access. But the greatest benefit comes with the interaction with a great group of campers and peers and the beautiful lakefront location on Damariscotta Lake.
The employment period extends nine weeks from mid-June to mid-August and includes a nine-day orientation program.
