Year after year, parents of campers sing the praises of Pemi staff members and the profound impact they’ve had on their sons. Alumni never fail to mention the counselors and instructors who inspired them to become the best version of themselves. Working at Pemi is a joy. It’s also hard work, and when you give it your best, it’s crucial to have downtime in order to be at the top of your game with your campers. At Pemi, you’ll find staff facilities that offer space to exercise, relax, cook a light meal, write reports, and catch up with relationships and responsibilities outside of camp.
Facilities to Relax and Recharge
Pemi’s Weight Room is a covered, open-air building tucked behind the main athletic fields. A variety of olympic free-weights, dumbbells, squat racks, and bench presses are available for any staff member to use. Every year, Pemi looks to provide new and useful equipment to our collegiate athletes and fitness enthusiasts, with the most recent example of adding a Concept 2 Erg.
A brand new multi-use lodge dedicated for staff use opened for our 2021 season. This two-story building—tucked into the woods and with a sweeping view over Pemi’s playing fields and down to the lake—has a kitchen, TV room, game room, quiet room for those who need to work, and living space for one or two people. In the heart of the staff lodge is a common space, anchored by a stunning fireplace crafted from old stone walls from Pemi’s own land.
