At Ring Lake Ranch, we take seriously the quality of the work experience for our staff. Our staff handbook says that our mission as staff is to:
Ring Lake Ranch, a non-profit, ecumenical spiritual retreat center, provides “renewal in sacred wilderness” by offering one- and two-week summer retreats with evening programs led by internationally renowned speakers, trail rides and hikes in the mountains, and interaction with fascinating people. Ring Lake Ranch is located in the Wind River Mountains about 10 miles outside Dubois, WY, 70 miles from the Tetons and Jackson Hole, and 90 miles from Yellowstone. More information about our programs is available at www.ringlake.org.
Our cooks prepare tasty, healthy meals for between 25-45 guests and about a dozen staff each week. The cook will work with our head cook and an assistant cook in meal preparation, menu planning, tracking inventory, and supervising cleanup. As a non-profit center, we’re more of a community than a traditional guest ranch. Our guests and staff eat together, do dishes together, and everyone may take part in sessions with internationally known presenters.
The work schedule is full-time but rarely more than two meals per day, with breaks between meals and time off between Saturday morning and Sunday evening meals. The cooking team determines the work schedule based on each person’s experience and abilities.
