Most counselors live with campers in our beautiful lakeside cabins. The cabins are rustic with no electricity or plumbing. Toilets and shower facilities are centralized and close by. Aunts and Uncles, Trip Leaders, Riding Staff and Support Staff live in shared staff housing (some of which has electricity).Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
Your cabin is shared space with campers so valuables, electronics and medications cannot be stored there. Each counselor is given a small locker in the staff room as a secure place to store these items. Counselors will also have personal cubby space in the staff room.Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
Yes, there are shared computers in each staff room that you can use during your free time or for camp  lesson planning. We ask staff to be considerate of others and remember these are shared. There is a Wi-Fi signal in each staff room so staff can login on their personal devices. Please notify the staffing director if you have school work, job interviews or specific concerns regarding access to the internet while at camp.

Service depends on your carrier. Some do not work well on camp property due to our mountainous location. We ask that all phones and electronics are kept and charged in the staff room. You will not be allowed to carry your phone around camp while working. Phone use is for the staff room or out of camp on time off. Part of the beauty of Wyonegonic is living in a simple and rustic environment.

Counselor and Unit Staff have one full day off each week during the camper season. In addition, staff have one evening out each week starting at 5:30pm. During a typical program day at camp our goal is to give you an hour of free time.  Support Staff positions have different schedules and work on an hourly basis, please inquire about working hours and time off.

There is so much to do in our area. We are within a one hour drive of the ocean beaches to the east and the mountains to the west. The city of Portland offers dining, shopping and movies. We are close to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. North Conway is a fun village with good restaurants, outlet shopping, rivers and great mountain hiking. Some staff choose to remain in camp, pack a lunch and explore Moose Pond. You can paddle to one of our nearby campsites for a day of relaxing, reading and swimming.

Singing is a long time tradition at camp. Songs are sung throughout the day including after meals and before bedtime. We will teach camp songs so all staff and campers feel included. If you want to get a head start on learning Wyonegonic songs we have songs in the staff handbook and on the website.
