Job Description

Camp Pinecliffe has a dynamic, developmental hiking program for all age groups. Specialists will work with all campers regardless of developmental stage. Our trips go out throughout the week with some occasional weekend trips. With our younger age groups the trips leave in the morning and return later in the day. Our very youngest campers often take a morning and afternoon trip returning to camp for lunch and rest hour. As the camper develops her skills throughout her summers at camp, hiking trips become more challenging. Our older campers day hikes are full day and leave before breakfast and return just before dinner. Our trip leaders must be prepared to work with all different abilities and be willing to be assigned to all level groups. There will be overnight hikes for older age groups, requiring our staff to be skilled in overnight camping and cooking. All staff in this department must be at least 21 years of age and have a clean driving record. While in camp, Hiking staff will be living in cabins with the campers, but will have the support of at least two other co-counselors. While in camp on the weekend, Campcraft staff will have the opportunity to assist with other departments in camp. We do not accept applications for weekday only positions as our Campcraft staff are fully integrated into our program throughout the summer.

Experience hiking with children is mandatory at all levels. Wilderness First Aid is desired and Wilderness First Responder is also a plus. Hiking trips include: Jockey Cap, Hawk Mountain, Emerald Pools, Franconia Notch, Mt. Washington, and Mt. Katahdin.

Company Description

Camp Pinecliffe, founded almost a century ago among the lakes and sturdy pines of Maine, is a private summer camp for girls ages 7 to 15. Pinecliffe is a family run camp with third and fourth generation directors. We are focused on the individual camper, encouraging each girl to become the best that she can be, while living happily and successfully with others. Since 1917, a plaque with our motto, Do the Thing That Counts and Then Dont Count It, has hung in our Main Bunk and truly exemplifies Pinecliffe's philosophy. Our girls leave camp each summer, eager to return, with many happy memories of new things learned, new friends, and great experiences.
