Internships at Camp Nashoba North
Camp Nashoba North invites students at all levels of study to earn internship credit for their work within our Summer Camp Program in Southern Maine. Interns at Nashoba will fulfill a typical staff role, as well as any other duties necessary to earn the credit they need for school. Working at Camp Nashoba North provides an easy avenue for credit to many areas of study including, but not limited to, Education, Culinary, Business Administration, Parks & Recreation Management, Outdoor Education, Physical Education, Equestrian, Veterinary, and more!
Camp Nashoba North is a private, traditional, co-educational overnight summer camp located in Raymond, Maine. On the sunny shores of Crescent Lake, each summer at Nashoba provides a unique summer experience for campers of varying backgrounds and cultures. Campers (aged 7-15) are able to sign up for a massive variety of activities to spend time outdoors, hone a skill, or simply try something new!
Our 85-95 staff members are predominantly collegians aged 18-24, though we do hire outside of that range as well. Just as our campers, our staff is a widely diverse group of young adults coming from not just across the US, but from across the world.
