Each summer we hire five male and five female counselors to be in charge of each cabin group. The groups age run from 9-14 years of age.
As a cabin counselor you will work with your Counselor in Training to care for your particular group at all cabin times: morning, rest period, bed time, and going with them on wilderness trips. You will also teach or help teach different activity blocks to campers of all ages, participate in all-camp activities, and be a part of the camp community. Summer staff get daily time off as well as one full 24-hour period off per week.camp experience.
We favor counselors with the following skills and certifications (if applicable):
swim instruction, lifeguards, canoeing and kayaking, archery, arts and crafts, woodworking, nature, ropes course, music and drama, general sports, ceramics, farming and gardening.
In addition to counselor jobs we also sometimes hire: one head arts and crafts teacher, one performance teacher, and one woodshop teacher. These positions require applicants to have strong leadership, teaching, and organizational abilities.
We hire staff for our Wilderness trips programs.
Often these jobs can be used as college internships.

Our biodynamic farm is the life line of the camp and the kitchen is its heart. In the summer months we never stop beating - making 3 meals and two snacks a day from scratch. We are a small but motivated team churning out homemade granola, scratch bread, breaking down our chickens raised on our pastures and churning out pizza after pizza from our cob oven.
We are innovators and artists. We accept and we are grateful for what we can do in this moment, but we know that we can always improve.
We are on time, playful, and hardworking, so that at the end of the day we will be totally free for a swim in the lake, a scamper in the woods, or a game of hardcore meadow soccer. Not sure what meadow soccer is? Oh, it's a multi-age free for all like you've never seen before. No cleats required.
