Will I get any time off?
Staff members will have 6 pre-scheduled days off during the course of the summer (which is approximately one per week). Additionally, staff members will have a period off each day. Counselors have two out of every three nights off. The third night is spent in the bunk with the campers. On nights off, counselors are free to leave camp after campers lights out.
Camp is close to many scenic Maine attractions, and many counselors spend their days off in groups at beaches and parks. While some staff members drive their own cars on time off, we provide transportation to pre-determined destinations for staff members who need rides. Destinations in the past have included Old Orchard Beach, The Old Port in Portland, Maine, Booth Bay Harbor, Freeport, Coos Canyon, and Boston!
Counselors leaving camp on time off are expected to return by curfew at 1:00 AM and sign in at the office. Staff members should use their time off to “recharge their batteries” because we expect our staff to perform their duties to the best of their abilities and a full nights sleep is essential.
