Spend a wonderful summer at a Girl Scouts of Maine Camp! We have two resident camps with 30-40 staff and up to 60-130 girls who attend one (1) week to four (4) week sessions during our 5 week season.

Camp staff will assist in the day-to-day activities in their unit or programs areas and help maintain the health and safety of all campers. They should be enthusiastic, caring adults who are passionate about working with girls.

Both positions will assist in developing girl-driven unit and program area activities.
