Job Description

Camp Quinebarge is a traditional, overnight boys and girls summer camp lying on 70 acres of forest and over 1,200 feet of lakefront on Lake Kanasatka in Moultonborough, NH. Since 1936, Camp Quinebarge has fostered an environment for children to learn about themselves and the world around them, try new activities and learn new skills, have fun, and make friendships that last a lifetime.

At Quinebarge, we have three types of staff: counselors, support staff, and senior staff. Counselors work directly with campers at activities and in cabins. Senior staff support and supervise counselors and support staff. Kitchen staff fall under the category of support staff. While working directly with campers is not their main role, support staff perform integral duties that keep Camp running smoothly, and play a vital role in the camper experience.

Kitchen Assistant
Our kitchen is run by 1-2 Camp Chefs, with 3-4 kitchen assistants, all supervised by the Camp Directors. Together, they serve three meals each day for up to 250 campers and staff, typically served in our Dining Hall or outdoors as a cookout. Kitchen Assistants are provided onsite housing.

Kitchen Assistant Job Functions
● Assist in the daily operations of the camp food service, including food preparation, cooking, and managing the buffet lines.
● Assist in routine sanitation of the kitchen and related equipment, including dishwashing and sweeping, mopping, and cleaning the kitchen and dining hall.
● Assist in the preparation and packaging of food for use outside the camp dining hall, and in receiving orders from our food supplier.
● Prioritize food safety and allergen safety.
● Other duties as assigned by the Camp Chef and/or Directors. Equipment used includes food preparation and cooking equipment, both manual and mechanical, and cleaning and dishwashing supplies and equipment.
