Camp Quinebarge’s Adventure Course includes a 30 foot, 4 ascent climbing wall, a Low Ropes course with 12 elements, and a 6-element High Ropes Course with Zipline.
Ropes and Wall are both very popular activities within the Sports Program, with offerings during every activity period. Our goals within these activities are to help campers overcome obstacles or fears, and build life skills including communication, teamwork, trust, cooperation, and more in a safe and supportive environment.
- Deliver a fun ropes and wall program to campers.
- Ensure that camp staff and campers know and follow safety and educational procedures in the program area.
- Supervise Ropes staff to ensure a safe and fun program.
- Lead the management and care of the physical facilities and equipment in the Ropes and Wall program area.
Equipment used includes ropes, harnesses, helmets, belay systems, ladders, handholds for climbing wall, and all elements of low and high ropes courses.
The Counselor will work within our Sports and Adventure unit, meaning they will be helping lead all types of sports activities.

Camp Quinebarge is a traditional, summer, overnight boys and girls summer camp lying on 65 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, and make friendships that last a lifetime. At Quinebarge, counselors lead program activities as well as live in and supervise their assigned cabin of 4-8 campers. During activity periods, counselors are responsible for their activity areas and for the group of campers assigned for that hour; most other times, they are with their cabin.
