Camp Skylemar, a summer camp in Naples, Maine seeks Outdoor Recreation Staff. At Skylemar, you’ll have the opportunity to be a leader and hero while teaching and mentoring kids. Our mission is to make a positive impact in the world, one child at a time. You'll be mentored and develop dynamic skills within our creative and collaborative community.

The personal growth, the rewards of working with children, the excitement of an active, diverse community and the friendships you build will stay with you long after the summer ends.
Camp Skylemar is a well-established (since 1948) recreational summer camp, located in southern Maine. The state of 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 Outdoor Recreation Staff will teach classes, promote leadership and lead/oversee hikes and overnight camping trips.
