Other Outdoor Trip Leader

Chewonki Foundation – Posted by Camp Chewonki Wiscasset, Maine, United States

Job Description

Chewonki Trip Leaders are kind, empathetic, thoughtful, and fun adults who are responsible for caring for the health and well-being of a group of campers for the duration of each trip. Trip Leaders are ultimately responsible for the safety of the participants and the execution of all trip details. This includes preparing itinerary, evacuation, and resupply information; packing group gear and well balanced meals; ensuring the participants are prepared with correct gear and knowledge of the trip; facilitating a positive learning environment; and teaching age appropriate technical, interpersonal, and natural history skills. Our backcountry trips focus on one or more of the following disciplines: canoeing, sea kayaking, whitewater kayaking and backpacking.

Camp Chewonki is one of Maine’s most prestigious nature-based overnight camp and expedition-based youth leadership program for boys, girls, and non-binary children based on a 400-acre peninsula in mid-coast Maine. Since 1915, Chewonki has been changing the lives of children and staff–including yours! Overnight campers are aged 8-14 and spend 10 days or 3 weeks at camp. The overnight camp program focuses on building cabin community, building social emotional skills and knowledge in a core curriculum (including natural history, farm & food systems, watercraft, the arts, and more!) and learning about backcountry travel on multi-day remote cabin trips.

Leadership Expeditions are an expedition-based youth leadership program for all genders and all skill levels. We offer a variety of experiences and skill areas on trips throughout Maine and Eastern Canada. We offer multiple 3-week and 5-week trip programs for campers aged 14-18. Come experience the magic of camp and discover what’s inside of you! Develop your leadership skills and be part of a small community where you belong and take responsibility for success. If you’re looking for challenge, friendship, and a new understanding of yourself and the world, we want to take you outside.

$4,500 plus opportunities for bonuses with experience and certifications. Travel Stipend is added onto salary (determined by location you will be traveling from). Offering $200 refer-a-friend bonus if hired!

You can earn academic internship credit for this position! Very competitive salary within the camping industry, full room and board, extensive training, days off to explore Maine, laundry services provided.
