Looking for a place to make a difference and spend your summer outside making memories? Do you have a passion for summer camp, high adventure, crafts, outdoor skills, STEM or empowering girls, teens and young women? If you answered “yes!”, then Camp Meriwether is for you! We have 270 acres of rolling hills, wooded areas, and beautiful scenery that is just an hour drive from Atlanta near Newnan, GA. We are a true camp complete with a lake for canoes, kayaks and paddleboards; archery; challenge course; climbing wall, dual zip lines; flying squirrel; miles of hiking trails; arts and crafts facility; large swimming pool and climate controlled cabins and dining hall. During the summer we operate a premier overnight summer camp in Southwest Georgia for girls 2nd-12th grade.
We are looking for dynamic young women to provide a top rate camping experience for young girls. All staff will live and work on camp starting the end of May until the end of July. Staff will we assigned a group 8-10 girls weekly they are responsible for during group times and then will teach 5 activities of their interest during the day. A typical week for staff begins Sunday afternoon when a session begins until Saturday morning when a session wraps up. Staff can expect 2-3 hours each evening and this changes based on evening program with the girls. Staff can expect to have Saturday’s off and Sunday mornings each week. Staff applying should have a willingness to do whatever it takes to ensure the girls have a fantastic time while at camp and be 100% girl focused while in your care!
