Summer Counselors

Located on beautiful Lake Passagassawakeag in the rolling hills of Maine, Fair Haven Camps offers an escape from the world where children and youth can experience life to the fullest, make lasting memories and find answers to some of life’s questions. We provide a dynamic camp experience with the central purpose of sharing the love of Jesus Christ through building relationships.

Senior Counselors (age 18+) are called to invest in the lives of the campers that they serve. They are to develop relationships with each camper and be a healthy role model by being a model of Christ. SCs are responsible, with another counselor, for a cabin of up to 8 campers that they live, play, and eat with for the week. SCs lead cabin devotion times as well as look for any opportunity to share Christ with their campers.

SCs are responsible for leading activities. Most activities are lead in pairs and you can request to lead particular activities on your application. We also look for some counselors to lead particular activities where training may be required. Each summer we need: Lifeguards, Ropes Course Facilitators, Archery and Riflery Instructors that have current certifications (training may be available). SCs also participate in and lead evening activities like large group games and weekly campout.

All program staff are given a stipend for training and then a weekly pay based on position. Program staff has off from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon.
