  • Description

    Description

    Our property is a nearly 100-year-old iconic tourist destination in Maine, 20 acres of rolling sand dunes in the middle of a lush Maine forest, near the coastal city of Portland. We receive tens of thousands of visitors every year who come to learn about the incredible stories from our history. We are in the middle of a comprehensive renovation project which includes a luxury campground with gorgeous A-frame cabins; new attractions that teach visitors about the history, geology, and ecology of this fascinating place; a new mini golf course; the transformation of our 200+ year old barn into breathtaking concert venue; and the building of an 1800s farm house museum. In addition, we have a new non-profit organization that receives school groups, leading kids through hands-on learning activities, and organizes artistic events such as live music, art workshops, and more.

    You would have accommodations in our beautiful campground, You would also have access to all that southern Maine has to offer including nearby Portland (a beautiful, vibrant city!), beaches, hiking, paddling, Acadia National Park, and so much more. Most importantly, the staff and leadership here is filled with the kind of people that you would actually want to spend a summer working with--talented, hard-working, respectful, passionate, and funny. Well, we think we're funny anyway--we crack ourselves all the time!--but your mileage may vary. The point is we have made it a point to hire people that are quick to laugh (often at themselves!), and find joy in the situations that arise running such a unique property. We believe work shouldn't feel like work.

    We are looking for people that are willing to commit to our entire season, May - October. Expect to be fully integrated into our team, joining us for weekly staff meetings, off-site team-building activities, family dinners, and more. Ours is a top-notch organization with the highest standards imaginable so we are looking for people who are keenly interested engaging in the work here, pushing themselves to develop new skills and contribute to our burgeoning organization as much as possible. We are looking for travelers who want to combine career-building with their travel experiences!

    There are so many things to do depending on what you are interested in. We need staff members for our Welcome Center where we help people buy tickets, give them information, and sell souvenirs and merchandise. We need help with the workshops and field trips we put on for kids. We need people to run our snack bar where we sell kettle corn, hot dogs, ice cream, and fresh-made lemonade. There is lots of outdoor maintenance work such as landscaping and campground maintenance. We need everyone to help out with cleaning the campground (even the owner's pitch in!).

Our bath house is a short walk away and has literally the nicest bathrooms in the history of campgrounds (or so we're told), and private showers with actually hot water.
