Company Description:
Farm & Wilderness Foundation (F&W) is a non-profit, educational organization operating eight summer camp programs for children and young adults, a family camp, and retreat rental operation. Set on a beautiful 1,500-acre campus in the Green Mountains of Vermont, F&W programs are rich in adventure, community, history, and spirit and foster an individual relationship with the natural world. While each camp and initiative provides unique programs based on age and interests, all F&W activities are shaped by Quaker principles and the common belief that individuals and communities are strengthened by justice, honesty, self-reliance, diversity and respect for all persons. People of any race, background, religion, sexual orientation, gender, or economic status are encouraged to apply to our camps as campers or staff.

Description:
In this time of virtual experience and “alternative facts,” the value of experiential education shines. Lots of summer camps offer wilderness exploration and swimming lessons, but at Farm & Wilderness, we seek out meaningful experiences.

We offer opportunities for staff to:
• Teach about plants and animals while working with campers on our farms
• Train in culinary skills while preparing a meal or dessert
• Demonstrate tool use while helping to construct one of our buildings
• Guide campers to think about what climbing a rock wall or hiking the tallest mountain in New England taught them about themselves.

We value our staff’s creativity in engaging young people in learning the real-life skills of collaborating and problem-solving. As a Quaker foundation, Farm & Wilderness has a mission and history deeply rooted in peace, social justice, and equity education. Working alongside youth on 4,000 acres of beautiful wilderness, lakes, and farmland in Vermont, without the pressure and walls of an academic environment, staff see the impact of their work with young people. This is a summer job that offers lifelong skills.

We are still hiring for Counselors, Backpacking Guides, Nurse, Cooks, Nurse Assistant, and Lifeguards
Employment dates are June 8th-August 15th; or from July 21- August 15th.
