Agassiz Village Summer Camp

About Agassiz Village Summer Camp

Agassiz Village is a non-profit organization that has offered industry-leading programming that fosters the development of pro-social competencies in underprivileged, urban boys and girls through an immersive residential recreational camp experience for over 80 years. By integrating an adapted nationally recognized Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum, we are able to capitalize on its clear language, objectives, and approaches in nurturing happy, healthy, and kind kids. Additionally, we are able to use the SEL model to provide opportunities for kids to reflect on their growth over the course of their stay at camp.


Social Emotional Learning Coordinator

June 2018 - August 2018 Poland, ME
“This job put me out of my comfort zone in so many ways- from leading adults in a summer camp setting (which I had never worked) to working with youth from complicated backgrounds. Overall it was an incredibly transformative experience. The relationships I made with the staff members and the impressions I made on the campers (and vice versa) are memories and experiences I will hold with me for the rest of my life. ”
