Healthcare Provider

Kitchen Staff

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.

Please contact our Culinary Director, Robyn Morin at robyn@glenbrook.org for more information.

Counselor-In-Training (CIT) and Farmer-In-Training (FIT)

Glen Brook’s Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program is an intensive leadership-training program for students who have completed 10th or 11th grade and are 16 or 17 years old.

Winter Staff

Winter Camp Employment runs for 7 days in February, on the week of President’s Day.

Winter Camp Counselor

Winter camp employs numerous counselors and some kitchen support staff. Counselors must have a passion for the outdoors and enjoy introducing campers to activities such as sledding, Nordic skiing, ice-skating, and snowshoeing, and snow fort building. Indoor activities like arts and crafts, cooking, and board games round out the day.

All counselor positions are residential, one-week positions that coincide with school vacations in mid-February. Positions require applicants to be 18 years old or older.

Winter Camp CIT Program

CITs help counselors care for campers, do many daily camp chores in the kitchen, dining room, grounds, barns, etc., and help organize some of the special activities. The CIT director supervises CIT’s. The primary goals of the program are to help participants recognize themselves as leaders, teachers, and positive role models, and to understand what goes into making camp an unforgettable experience for the young people in our care.

CITs must enjoy working with children, embrace and work with the fun and challenges of intense community living, be willing to take initiative and work hard, be willing to give up many personal freedoms and comforts, display outstanding character, and be enthusiastic, creative, self-directed leaders.
