Outdoor Adventure Instructors (Summer 2024)

Camp Skylemar is hiring college students and recent graduates to work in outdoor adventure programs. Are you interested in teaching outdoor skills, camping, backpacking, ropes/adventure courses, hiking, archery, or climbing, then this is the perfect job. Our mission is to make a positive impact in the world, one child at a time. At Skylemar, you will have an opportunity to be a hero and leader while teaching and mentoring kids. 


Working at Skylemar is the experience of a lifetime. Staff members create lifelong friendships and connections. You will be mentored, and develop dynamic skills within our collaborative community. Staff orientation and weekly in-service training sessions provide a very strong foundation to assume summer responsibilities.


Camp Skylemar is a well-established (since 1948) recreational summer camp, located in southern Maine. Maine is more than a destination – it’s an experience that will take your breath away. In summer, there’s no better place to be than in Maine. From the beaches to the mountains, there’s so much to explore and enjoy during your free time.


The compensation package starts at $3,400. We also provide free housing, meals, roundtrip transportation expenses, WIFI, staff clothing, time off, and laundry service. The camp season runs from June 16 to August 11. Staff can take an online college class. Camp Skylemar provides all necessary certifications and training, including lifeguard, CPR, first aid, ropes course, archery, wilderness first aid, and Maine trip leader certification. We also have some simple ways Skylemar staff members can earn extra money this summer.  Internship credit is available. Most educational institutions require prior approval before the start of an internship. Check with your institution to be sure this opportunity meets any requirements.
