Camp Chewonki is a nature-based overnight camp and expedition-based youth leadership program for boys, girls, and non-binary children. Overnight campers are aged 8-15 and spend 10 days or 3 weeks at camp. The overnight camp program focuses on building cabin community, building skills and knowledge in a core curriculum, and learning about backcountry travel on multi-day remote cabin trips. Participants in our Leadership Expeditions are aged 14-18 and spend 3 weeks or 5 weeks learning leadership skills, remote travel, and a robust sense of self. 

The Cabin Coordinator is responsible for supporting campers and cabin staff and facilitating the creation of a campwide community. There are two Cabin Coordinators, one assigned to the Puffin Program and the Owl age group, the other assigned to the Heron and Osprey age groups. Cabin Coordinators strive to personally know as many campers as possible and work as the primary liaison on the Coordinator Team to manage camper needs in their assigned age groups. Cabin Coordinators serve as mentors to Cabin Leaders and other staff members, providing support for nearly all aspects of their jobs. The Cabin Coordinators are expected to support the growth and development of all staff in attaining their personal best as an educator, caretaker, and employee.
